CU has fairly strict admissions requirements. Kids have to meet minimum standards called MAPS . However, CU has exceptions under which they will allow certain kids in at their discretion. The way I understand it is that the school limits the number to about 10% of admissions. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) Anyway, with Gordon Gee being very pro-athletics, Mac was able to get many academically challenged kids into school under the "exception." So, say Mac had 20 recruits, 6 might have been admitted this way. This all changed after "the scandal." The way I remember it, and correct me if I'm wrong, under Hoffman, the athletic department was told that each program could only allow the school percentage of their recruits to get in under the "exception" or whatever they call it. So, lets say Hawkins has 20 scholarships to give. Only 2 of those could be a special admission. Listening to Woody Paige on the radio, he said he'd heard that Hawkins is VERY frustrated with CU admission policy and the admissions department. Some of that stemming from the Simmons thing. So, for those "in the know." Am I way off base on this? Is there any chance in hell that the policy might change?
