Since evidently the NCAA says they can't even throw athletes a loaf of bread if they're starving without incurring major sanctions for the university, I'm wondering what exactly their job description is. What do they get paid for? Are they glorified student managers or something (i.e. hauling sleds on and off the field, setting up traffic cones for drills)? On a similar note, what exactly did Herron lie about? Are graduate assistants just supposed to sit around and watch the coaches coach and not actually do anything with the team and players?
"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
