    I was looking at college basketball rosters for some of the top schools and isnt it weird that all the players or about 75% of them or all the good ones aremajoring in communications. From what I know isnt that the easiest major?

    He's right, I did a quick sample of a team with a lot of boneheads: Syracuse. Devendorf, Flynn, Mookie Jones, Paul Harris, Kevin Drew, and Kris Joseph allhave a Communications major. "Human Ecology" was also another preferred major of syracuse players...

    OP is right... it seems like all of these dudes are either Communications, Criminal Justice, Sports Medicine or Sociology. i always noticed this.

    here's an article i just looked up on this:

    http://www.usatoday.com/s...-18-majors-graphic_N.htm

    [​IMG] not really surprising... you wouldn't expect cats on the hoops team to be majoring in Chemical Engineering, unless it's Stanford or something

    Doesn't Syracuse have one of the top Communications schools in the nation, though? Players getting a degree in Communications in that case ispretty understandable.

    I'm pretty sure something like ~80% of the athletes at Texas A&M major Ag Leadership. Talk about a joke of a major [​IMG] Look for Antoine Wright's interview from a few years ago, where he talksabout how easy those classes were.

    Here at Oregon most of the football/basketball players major in Political Science.

    I love it when I walk into a new PS class in the beginning of the term and see four or five football players sitting in there. That means either (a) The classis easy or (b) The teacher grades on a huge curve. Either way, I know I'm in the clear.

    They have too since its the easier of majors. You really think someone doing both sports and engineering/premed/law will pass?

    Michael Ruffin got a degree in ChemEngn,
    Alan Henderson got a BA in Bio
    Emeka graduated with a 3.8 GPA (although, in finance).
    Dikembe can speak 9 languages, not smart per se, but still, nine languages is impressive.

    [​IMG] you're joking, right? You don't think that Mutombo was smart? First off, you would be playing under John Thompson if youcouldn't hack it in the classroom. Integrity starts with him. Secondly...

    I think a lot of college athletes major in communications so they can do some sort of sports broadcasting or analyzing on air on some local sports networkafter they're done playing if they don't make it to the pros
