I read the Sports Illustrated article on Kentucky's John Wall (at my usual magazine-reading place, a waiting room). I was pleased that he thought he had learned good study habits at his Christian academy and has a 3.2 GPA. It sounded refreshing. He went on to talk about having done a paper on Barack Obama and Martin Luther King Jr, and going to a German restaurant and then talking about it for a Small-Group Communications course.
This is simply shameful. Kyle's assignments in Eighth Grade are more challenging. It makes you wonder what the players who don't have "good" study skills and a 3.2 average are doing.
