The Wall Street Journal offers an excerpt from a book about the football program at the University of Michigan. A day for superstar quarterback Denard Robinson is described as hectic and exhausting. Herewith an summary:
0630 - to the sport facility
1000 - attend a class (80 minutes long)
Lunch at a restaurant
One-hour meeting with a professor to discuss a paper
1400 - return to athletic facility
1930 - dinner
Watch films of game
2230 - leave athletic facility
2300 - to bed
Why don't they just pay these guys as performers and stop the charade of pretending they are students.
p.s. - I note the athletics refer to nonathlete students as "normies."
