Something that struck me as funny about college athletics

Sorry but no link right now but I just read an article about an athlete on our high profile college football team who was dismissed after being charged with domestic violence. He was attending the university on scholarship of course and the article listed his major as "sports and leisure studies". Sounds like a tough program...studying about leisure, that is. Just the thought of opening a book to read about how to take it easy just tuckers me out.
You can't make this stuff up and can't tell me that these are not fluffy courses designed to keep top notch but not so academically inclined athletes from losing sports eligibility.
