Transcript Americans prize a good sports team, more so, than they do a great debate team . . . This explains why so many people are willing to look the other way while college athletes are granted special privileges. Perhaps they think there is something special, untouchable about the lure of athletes who give meaning to "school spirit" and human agility. So special as to give a new dimension to "scholarship." But things are changing ... Or are they? University of Houston felt the wrath of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) for placing athletes above academics. But, will it change the school's attitude . . . Maybe; maybe not! Now the world is watching, and waiting, and asking, "Will Americans change, or will they continue to watch while athletes, rather than completing school, elect to drop out and chase pro-contracts?" What will it take for Americans to see that the future is academically obtained and not athletically taken? The answer lies in the integrity of the athletes themselves. It is from within themselves that they can conquer the pressures from others and follow their own standards, academically, as well as athletically. What follows this page are pictures and stories of women and men who seek to dispel the myth that athletics are more important than academics ... at least at our university. ► Wm.
