ESPN's Dana O'Neil comments on the athletics-academics conundrum that has vexed the NCAA forever, even preceding its establishment. In doing so she cites John Chaney — not the killing John Calipari part but the loud railing that test scores were not the total measurement of a student-athlete's potential. She also adduces the example of Villanova's Randy Foye to justify her conclusion that progress has been made and the current APR is the best institutional measure to date.
Ironically on the same day Villanova assistant Doug Martin resigns because of inaccuracies on his resume. So the conundrum continues. Ah, the human frailty of it all.
