Student athletes struggle to balance sports, academics

by Clayton Noblit

One of the more interesting findings of the Wainstein report concerned not the 18 years when students took fraudulent classes, but something that happened afterward.

The report found that after the AFAM department reduced the number of paper classes in 2009, the UNC football team’s average GPA fell to 2.121, the lowest in a decade.

Why do so many athletes struggle academically, and is it even possible to balance academics and big time sports?
