I want to let it be known that I am a hardcore VCU RAM FAN and I love all my athletes (I favor the basketball team because I love the sport but that’s neither here nor there) but they want too much now. I heard the story about the UConn student who recently won the championship but at times goes to bed hungry. I didn’t read an article on him so I can’t talk specifically about him. I think that’s disgraceful that this man works so hard in school and for his team and he has no food. I got a tweet from CNN that said the NCAA is thinking if giving it’s athletes unlimited food and snacks. Now I’m concerned but let me back up and explain myself.
As I said, I am a fan of HAVOC. Always have snd always wil be. I don’t mind a slight bump in my tuition to pay our coach or to create new facilities for our athletes because I love them that much. However, I also work with engineers who work just as hard for the school and for other companies that support or school both financially and physically. Where are their perks? Do they get something special? No they don’t. Do the art students who paint, draw, act and do whatever else for the school get special treatment or special pay? No. If you give the athletes special treatment or special pay or special whatever, don’t leave these students out. They comtribute to the academia of the school, the beauty, the prestige and so on. Fine, the athletes work hard and blood, sweat and tears go into what they do but the same goes for others. Don’t just give the athletes unlimited snacks. Make It so everyone on campus who doesn’t have access to food a chance to have what he’s going to get. My point is just don’t give the athletes special stuff because they wear a jersey with the school on the front and their name and number on the back. Improve your school not just a population. That’s all.
These shows taught me all about animals, science, math, geography, reading, grammar, kindness and friendship.
