As tutoring centers for college athletes get bigger and more expensive, non-athletes are beginning to gripe loudly about unequal treatment, the Chicago Tribune is reporting.

Isn’t it just like a pencil-necked geek to miss the point?


Colleges and universities are in the business to make money. Athletes make a lot of money for colleges and universities by attracting sporting fans and media coverage.

In exchange for making a lot of money for their colleges and universities, some athletes actually expect to receive “an education.” So the colleges and universities are forced to attempt to “educate” them.

Geez, it’s not like the schools actually pay the athletes to attend and perform. Is it?
