The incentive-pay policy scheduled to be discussed by the university's governing board on Wednesday holds that athletic directors and coaches with winning records will be ineligible for bonuses unless their teams maintain a minimum level of academic achievement based on how many students receiving athletic scholarships remain in school with a full-time course load while maintaining a 2.0 grade point average.

UC Berkeley physics professor Bob Jacobsen, who served on the committee, told the San Francisco Chronicle that the dollar value of such academic incentives would need to be low compared with bonuses based on athletic prowess so students who are struggling with their studies are given help instead of kicked off their teams.

While I agree in theory, really it's the school that needs to grow a set and force these kids into an education if they want to play the sport and receive a scholarship for it.

No TV 101...no write one paragraph for a final paper class...REAL class, REAL degrees.

Ain't going to happen in the SEC.


Since we're pretending some of these schools are something other than the NFL minor league tie the standings in with the school's academic rankings.

Sure, it could happen in the SEC. It'd just result in even higher levels of cheating. I'd be surprised if the student athletes got less than straight As in such a system.

I went to a University of California school. They were not afraid of pulling people's scholarships and dropping them. Ship up or ship out.

Might work at the University of California, probably won't work where it would matter.
