C’s get degrees!

I think lowering the GPA minimum hurts the athletes in the end. If the standard is lower I believe that those who were not eligible before may be motivated for a while to do better but I don’t see that that would last for very long for most of them. I see them eventually doing the minimum to play and when the minimum is so low it is not good for them educationally. Those students who were close to the minimum or just reaching it before would also have the opportunity to relax and slack on their school work with the minimum lowered. I don’t see it as fair to the student athletes who work hard in school and in their sport. I understand we want them off the streets but that can’t override the importance of them doing well in school also.
