Penn State had a player, John Urschel, who earned his master's degree in math and graduated with a 4.0 GPA. That's just one example of how many of these great schools do not always take poor students. The University of South Carolina made the news over the summer for not accepting some football players who didn't meet the academic standards of the university.

Really, there is no excuse for this. The worst part about this is that one of the professors who was accused of this academic violation used to be director of the ethics institute at UNC. It's sad because UNC is a top university and this is going to bring their reputation down a bit. Not all athletes are poor students and not all schools allow this type of thing to go on.
