This is one of the more butt-hurt press releases I have ever read. Whoever allowed that to go out doesn't deserve their job. Notice how there is no mention what office the statement came from? There isn't a person in that whole university that wants to be associated with what is to come next. Div 1-AA.
I also want to post a link to a post I wrote last year on dUI's pathetic academic record when it comes to athletics. Why they decided to talk about how well their athletes do in the classroom is beyond any logical reason I can come up with. This was an extremely poorly thought out press release.
