    At first I thought "Man, Lefty's being an asshole, how bad can it be?"

    And then I read it.

    The off season cannot end soon enough. FACT!

    And what's going on with men's golf??

    i can't say this is the complete reason, but those guys are going to be missing a lot of class....since their competitive events are spread out over days. not just a couple hours 2 times a week or on Saturdays. and they travel to nearly all their events...not a 50/50 or even 65/35 type split in football or hoops or volleyball. Women's golf is one of the lower of the women's GPA avg as well. i wonder if the NCAA mandates limit on golfers practice time like they can in other sports. that seems impossible to enforce and certainly against the spirit of competitive golf which requires slavish, obsessive practice routines.

    now, the missing class reasoning doesn't account for a weak Fall semester performance in the classroom when they are out of season. however, i assume the athletes load up on hours in their non-competitive semesters. and summer. so, if you are taking 18 hours or something in the Fall....maybe that brings grades down.

    i also will refrain from my annual comments about the ongoing puffery that seems to suffuse this yearly journalistic exercise. i used to blame it on Hawk's "doing things the right way" backtrack from on-field success but i guess it's a permanent feature for us now.
