After you read this post at Capstone Report, ask yourself the following questions:
- Is there anything you can’t blame the NCAA for in the world of college athletics?
- Prior to 1991, what was going on at all of those schools that didn’t have athletic dorms?
- After 1991, how many schools forced to abolish athletic dorms saw a rash of criminal activity on the level of what was just discovered with Jimmy Johns?
- Why are student-athletes less prepared to deal with “the freedom of college life” than the typical student?
- If exposing student-athletes to the general student population is a bad thing, since it leads to more “general” behavior, how do coaches and athletic departments prepare their athletes for life after college, when there presumably won’t be any athletic dorms to reside in? Or is that something that’s not their responsibility?
