Is That Your Final Answer?


An NCAA investigation into the basketball program at the University of Georgia has uncovered evidence that several of the student-athletes enrolled in "Principles and Strategies of Basketball" were given A's without actually having to go to class or take final exams.

What's particularly interesting is the final exam itself. My favorite question: "How many points does a 3-point field goal account for in a basketball game?"

If you're going to give athletes a free pass, why make the test so easy? So that if they inadvertently show up for class, they can still get an A?
