USC to Spurrier “Suck it!”

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on August 7, 2007

The response by USC to Spurrier, is basically just that.

“SC officials are willing to work with Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier on tweaking the admissions process, but are not inclined to accept athletes simply because they meet minimum NCAA standards.

A day after Spurrier blasted the university for denying admission to a pair of his recruits, two officials on Monday defended USC’s desire to set the bar higher for prospective athletes than what the NCAA requires for initial eligibility.

“I know you want to maintain the standards,” said Bill Bearden, USC’s NCAA faculty athletics rep. “Every student that’s NCAA-qualified is not necessarily going to succeed and shouldn’t be accepted.

I wonder if the Old Ball Sack Coach is packing his bags as I type this. How dare a school official with years of experience tell the coach just who can make the cut academically and who can’t? Don’t they know that not only can God Steve Spurrier coach football, piss on Augusta National greens when he feels like it, but he’s also an expert at school administration.

“They look at the whole file — grades, records, test scores, pattern of grades, the courses they’ve taken,” Bearden said. “If the committee feels like the student has a realistic chance of succeeding, then they’re admitted as a special admit.”

“Hyman said the NCAA’s academic progress rate — a measuring system that assigns scores to schools based on their ability to retain athletes and keep them eligible — makes it imperative to be diligent when screening prospects. Schools that consistently rank below the NCAA’s APR standards are subject to scholarship reductions and other penalties.

Gosh darn it don’t confuse the situation with all those statistics and numbers. You have to break it down Barney style. So I’ll attempt to do that. What they are saying is, if they let every moron in that meets NCAA standards, some of the said morons will eventually flunk out or leave early due to academic pressure. Thus, that can effect future athletic scholarships because the university didn’t graduate a certain percentage of football players. So it’s either let the dumb ones in now and risk losing scholarships in the future or Steve Spurrier can recruit smarter players to begin with.

“It’s a heightened sense of concern, so therefore you have to have people who can ultimately make it,” Hyman said.”

Well that makes sense…let’s hope all the USC losers faithful see it like that.

“Becker said he has spoken with USC athletics director Eric Hyman about streamlining the process, but he noted there are obstacles to screening prospects prior to the National Signing Day in February, the earliest date that players can sign binding letters-of-intent.

First, Becker said high school coaches often are reluctant to release academic information on a borderline athlete, fearful they might cost the player a scholarship. Also, many recruits fighting to become eligible continue to take standardized tests into the summer.

See the school is willing to work with God the coach on the issue. My question is instead of ranting and raving like a child and embarrassing himself and his EMPLOYER in the process, why didn’t God Steve Spurrier find all the facts out?
