Since when is this a "stereotype"? It's quite true that the acceptance standards for the Southern universities are much different from, for example, the University of Michigan.
Our way? A high-ranking SEC official said he was "shocked" that Delany got down in the goo. Delany's shot reinforced the stereotype that the SEC is a renegade league that sacrifices academics at the altar of football. It certainly solidified the Big Ten as Midwest elitists while touching SEC sensitivities.
Duh. 400 people spend $75 to apply to the U. of Michigan graduate program for English every year, and ten get accepted. Graduate and undergraduate students apply to University of Alabama, too, but there's a qualitative difference between the universities of Michigan and Alabama, due to admissions standards.
And we know the education system is not as good in the South, so for state universities to serve their population, they have to lower entrance standards.
So, some players who could not play at Michigan get to play at Alabama. This is not something to get up in arms about; it's just the truth.
