Here’s a statement that captures perfectly the academic attitude of some of Butch Davis’ UNC-CH football players:
Isn’t that awesome! These guys are still posting this crap for the world to see! Seriously, do they not think they have done enough damage already? I don’t want them to stop of course, it is just amazing!
Showtime20UNC is, of course, the Twitter handle for UNC-CH running back Shaun Draughn and he is tweeting with a friend of his who plays at Virginia Tech. Obviously, Draughn does not take his education seriously. Maybe he can afford to have that attitude because he is a can’t-miss future NFL superstar!!!
Think about your own college career. More than likely, you had a strategy for taking the classes you would need to finish your major and complete your degree, and it’s also probable that you knew who was teaching what class in order to take classes from professors you liked and worked well with, and at the same time, you probably avoided others. Even as a freshman, you probably knew the names of your courses and after a couple of classes what your professor’s name was, right?
Not “Public Ivy” student Draughn.
We have to ask — seeing as how he does not even know what classes he is taking – is Draughn getting a lot “help” with his schoolwork from Butch Davis’ nanny or someone similar?
Are we starting to find out how UNC-CH has kept an implausible number of guys eligible through the years? I mean, if this guy does not know what classes he is taking and is eligible (and makes a joke of his UNC-CH education for the world to see), doesn’t that say a lot?
