Hornets Get Stung

Sacramento State is #1! Sadly, it's not for a good reason.

California State University, Sacramento has seven athletic programs subject to NCAA penalties, the most of any Division I school in the country, based on Academic Progress Rate data released Tuesday...

Sacramento State's baseball, men's basketball, football, men's golf, men's indoor track, men's outdoor track and women's tennis programs are scheduled to receive penalties ranging from public notice to scholarship reduction.

Requiring a college to prove academic progress and mandating a measurable system to prove it? What is this No Athlete Left Behind?

At some point there's going to have to be a decision over the true purpose of colleges and universities. Are they social organizations, sports training facilities or educational institutions. Something's gotta give.
