I have no idea why this 2-year-old article appeared on my VOAT feed yesterday, but it had me thinking this morning that a small number of blacks get university diplomas of zero value for playing football while, and I am guessing here, a larger number of white girls get diplomas (without the guaranteed C-grade in every class) for sex work. Of the former, 1.6% get a job based on what they did in college, while the latter can work their selected field for decades, guaranteed... and may even be able to use the degree they were awarded with earned passing grades. Who is the winner here?
As an aside, I was really surprised to find in the original story that Baylor is a Baptist college. Wow!
Third thought I had was that this "recruiting and retention tool" for football programs is extremely unlikely to be unique to this school.
