You're either qualified or you're not. You can paint it any way you want.

Ultimately, either you meet the academic and educational requirements, or you do not. As I noted in my other comment, some students, especially athletes, are simply moved along due to their athletic abilities and not their academic abilities. This is nothing but a disservice to them as individuals. I hope that young man can make it academically, first, and worry about athletics, second, but somehow I see his mindset is nothing but the reverse. He has been given a very fortunate opportunity. Let's hope the coaches put his academic future first.
