Just when we all needed to get our minds off the stinker that was State vs UVA, the NYPost.com drops a gem of an article on us.
So, in his final days at UNC, while waiting to speak with the professor of the class he shared with the football star, the kid from NYC slipped two of the footballer’s “essays” from the prof’s stack of papers.
He sent them to me. … They were enough to make you cry. Still are.
Both were under a page long, written — sort of — in pen, loaded with cross-outs. That a college instructor — even a junior high teacher — would accept work in such condition seems impossible.
As for the content, it’s heartbreaking. The one titled, “Abortion” includes, as written: “It seem that the women ought to be the one who desides,” “Abortion is a tough typic and men difently does not need to make the choice,” and “women that get abortion are many times looked at as a bad person.”
The other, titled “A Girl Part of UNC Football,” includes, “The young lady manger [manager] fills that she does get specill treatment. She fills that the coaches treates her nice becaus she is girl.”
His grade on these college essays? A perfect 5 out of 5, on each. They include the professor’s check marks of content approval, including twice-underlined praise as, “Interesting.”
I’m still on the ‘nothing will happen to them’ side but the national media is taking notice of the corruption we’ve all known for a long time. That in itself is good.
