I have no problems with what he took (hell I took the history of rock and roll music where my stone out prof. said we "were doing this class for Jerry") it is the fact he is a part-time, part-time student playing college ball. Thee is just something not right with that in my mind.
he took courses over the summer, and the rules follow NCAA guidelines and are the rules for all athletes, not just the ones who bring in millions of dollars for the school.

i had a handful of teammates over my college basketball career who did baisicly the exact same thing. they had redshirted, graduated, but still had a year of eligability left. a friend of mine took intro to acting and a photography class as a red shirt senior... this was division III, where millions of dollars were most certainly not made. they were lucky if they made 20 bucks off of us.

Matt got his Jollys out of USC. I don't see a problem


I hope that USC has a few down years as such, seeing how they've had so many starters start so many games, and now leave.

But that's the flow of things, so whatever.


I don't know if matt made a mistake. HIs personal choices in that regard really aren't any of my business

my racquetball "professor" was from kenya. she spoke very bad english, which made it oh so easy to understand her with the echo's that happen in your average racquetball court.

the school has some sort of professor exchange program at the time where they brought in a bunch of teachers from other countries... they had their regular courses, then i guess they figured they'd give 'em some P.E. classes as extra work. they also worked in the dining hall, which was funny when i'd leave racquetball, go back to the dorm, shower and go to dinner and there was my racquetball prof serving spaghetti and meatballs.

You'd walk into class and say "Yo", he'd respond, "Yao"...and it would go back and forth until class ended.

And the following day the leftover meatballs were used as raquetballs...keeps the school budget nicely in line.

So after all this witty repartee I headed out to grab my lunch, fully intending on getting a turkey sub, yet ended up with a raquetball, er meatball sub instead.

I took Introduction to Floral Design. The class was full of football players.

to answer the actual poll question, yes, he did make a mistake. perhaps in the long run he might turn out to be a slightly better NFL QB, but he cost himself some moolah.

I'm in The History of Rock n' Roll and also Introduction to Computers this term. You can't get much more "bird course" than that.

Scary enough I learned the most out of my history of rock and roll class in college than any other!! For a final we had to make a list of out top 50 albums of all time and why...I spent more time on that than any other final.

Ballroom Dancing at USC is actually a very popular class, most of my friends have taken it. There is also a really cool sailing class, where you get to sail overnight to Catalina for your final.

Lastly, there are a couple of really cool cinema classes. One is taught by Leonard Maltin and consists of watching films before they are released, with guest speakers from the film. Past films screened include LOTR Return of the King and Star Wars Episodes 2 and 3. There is also a George Lucas class, I took that one. Basically we just watched the Star Wars films and a couple of others. At the end George Lucas comes in to speak to the class.
