Drugs and grades at UA


1 comment

UA Chancellor John White announced today that, indeed, a couple of basketball players had tested positive for marijuana in the course of apparently routine random drug testing done on college athletes.

I don't mean to be flip, but ... College kids? Smoke marijuana? Say it ain't so.

On a more important topic, one-day-wonder Dana Altman apparently said at an Omaha news conference that there was nothing to reports that his concerns about academics among athletes at UA and a rumored inability to bring in an academic advisor were among reasons he decided to stay at Creighton. This is a subject of continuing concern to anyone who thinks a university serves a function beyond providing entertainment for sports fans.

PS -- I see the D-G is reporting that one basketball player is on team suspension for academic reasons. Talk about the soft bigotry of low expectations. I think it has existed for years in the UA athletic department.
