"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Interesting article I stumbled upon while visiting thebiglead.com.
Apparently football/basketball players tend to have significantly lower SAT and GPAs than the average student body at various institutions. Of particular note is that UM had one of the highest SAT averages (997), while MSU had one of the lowest (917). Not that this should be a newsflash for anyone, but I found it particularly glaring how significant some of these gaps were, especially at schools where academic standards are, how do we say, somewhat lax.
