What, South Carolina Actually Has Academic Standards?
That will definitely be filed under the “who knew” headline. Here I was thinking that South Carolina would admit anyone who wished to attend the university, you know, just so they could fill up seats in their classrooms. That was until I was informed that a few recruits who signed with the school didn’t end up being admitted.
Spurrier was angered that receiver Michael Bowman of Wadesboro, N.C., and Arkee Smith of Jacksonville, Fla., were cleared by the NCAA to enroll, yet were turned down by the university. The rest of the Gamecocks football team officially reported Friday for preseason camp.
“Hopefully, I truly believe this is the last year this is going to happen, because I can’t operate like that,” Spurrier said. “I can’t operate misleading young men.”
First the confederate flag, now this. Spurrier, causing a stir. Not to mention, appealing to moral standards here — he can’t operate misleading young men. Leave it to Steve to be watching out for America’s youth. And South Carolina with academic standards? Who knew!
