S. Smothers no longer at WVU?

81 posts in this topic

With the way most big programs are structured with academic support, it is hard to see a student athlete doing bad unless he truly doesn't care about being a student.....most coaches are being judged by their bosses for the athletes APR scores these days, programs are investing a lot of money into the academic support system to make sure these student athletes succeed in the classroom.

I agree there are tremendous support systems, and coaches are committed to providing resources to student/athletes.  Some athletes are so far behind, these resources are not enough.  I am not saying it can't be done, it is going to take tremendous effort.  If you struggle with reading and/or basic math skills, getting caught up is difficult.  Throw in committment to your sport, it is easy to see how struggling students are unsuccessful.  We have to stress to all our students that learning is a life long endeavor.  We cannot start them to soon.

  If you know WVU and the staff they have a great support system for kids that struggle with the books.  They just didn't say you don't meet the grade get out, many of lines had been crossed before that happened.

You have to try pretty hard to have academic problems at WVU as a member of the general student body.  When you add in all the academic support football players get, there's really no excuse for failing to stay eligible.

Better watch out, GA is going to acuse you of picking on the young man.
