Arden Key, a 2015 DE from Georgia, committed to South Carolina on Sunday. When asked about his decision, he listed the school’s apparent lack of academic rigor as one of its selling points.

“The academic part, it’s like you have to try to fail,” Key said. “I love the coaches. They are always ready for something. And it isn’t far from home. It gives you a different environment. It’s in the city, but it’s also in the country.”

Gotta agree with gamecocks22 right here, Leo. This isn't your best troll job.

This is the epitome of stupidity....why post this blurb if you are not or (apparently) cannot understand what it is you are posting about. Pathetic....

Here's the whole quote:

"They help you out and make sure you get your work done. If you're struggling in a subject, they have a certain tutor that helps you in that subject that will help you out with getting your grades up or whatever the case will be. I think that's really important to me, just because after college, you want to have a backup plan to football. You have to try to fail."

Dumb. He was not dogging the academics. He was saying there is a good support system with all the tutoring and help needed in the new acadmeic center, The Dodie. Just like any college you have to try and fail. Just go to class, do your work, and if you need help ,tutors are provided, just like any SEC school.
