    Man, if this is really true it makes me wonder how many other schools have or currently continue to recruit athletes that can't read or barely write? I guess the Buffs could end up having a loss expunged from their football record as well. I'm also curious to know if CU has a "learning" specialist on the payroll? And I don't mean a tutor. :rolling_eyes:

    She told OTL that more than one-third of the football team, and three-quarters of the basketball team, had a diagnosis of LD. Monk said Bowden and other coaches recruited athletes who read at a grade-school level in some cases, as well as a few players with very low IQs who could not have survived on a college campus without intensive academic support.

    I though this would be appropriate here:

    Hopefully. Every little bit helps.

    And I just posted this in the recruiting forum: we have an in-home visit set up with Nigel this Saturday.
