And why did it take so long?
not sure where the mess up was, but i can tell you that at the cox center, the tutors get very rigorous training as to keeping in line with NCAA protocol. the football players will come to them with all sorts of sheninigans, but the tutors are capable of setting them straight, and in a fashion that they can pass a said class.
and i say this as an LSU alum, LSU isnt exactly MIT. it really doesnt take a genius to skate by in the college of arts and sciences. add in the fact that these guys have all the special individual attention? im sorry, thats inexcusable and in my opinion the blame should be assigned mostly to the player.
