UCLA’s Rosen: School, football ‘don’t go together’

UCLAUCLA quarterback Josh Rosen, considered to be a first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and an economics major, said in an interview with Bleacher Report that football and education don’t mix.

The Heisman hopeful said trying to play football while working on a college degree is like trying to do two two full-time jobs at the same time.

Said Rose: “There are guys who have no business being in school, but they’re here because this is the path to the NFL. There’s no other way. Then there’s the other side that says raise the SAT eligibility requirements.

“OK, raise the SAT requirement at Alabama and see what kind of team they have. You lose athletes and then the product on the field suffers.”

Rosen added that he believes the schools should do more to help the players in the classroom, and not just find ways to keep them on the field.

Nutt wants apology

Multiple reports have indicated that Houston Nutt wants to settle his lawsuit against Ole Miss, asking for an apology and a  donates $500,000 to establish a state commission on sports ethics.

Awesome. A state commission on sports ethics. Right, that’ll keep everyone team from cheating.

Nutt’s lawsuit alleges former coach Hugh Freeze and Athletic Director Ross Bjork violated a separation agreement by making disparaging comments about Nutt and his coaching staff to reporters.

The NCAA’s Notice of Allegations showed that the majority of violations against Ole Miss took place under Freeze, and Nutt’s lawsuit also led to Freeze’s firing after a check of his phone records revealed a “troubling pattern.”
