Ohio State QB Cardale Jones: We Are Here For Football, Classes Are Pointless

Third-string Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones got served a reminder this morning of the cruel nature of Twitter and various social media platforms. Jones sent out a tweet early in the morning — likely while getting ready for class — about his displeasure for said classes. Jones came to Ohio State to play football and he’s made it very clear that classes were not the selling point. Here is the tweet:

You have to love Twitter for allowing athletes to interact with their fans. You have to also love it for moments like this — although Jones won’t find this as amusing as the rest of us.

    I would suggest he take an english class. I blame the schools for this attitude. If they don’t make the grades, they don’t play!

    Can’t wait to hear how this is the SEC’s fault……A conference with Jim Tressell, Sandusky and this guy ….Big 10 you are irrelevant…..this is who you are

      spoken like a true SEC – football first – fan. Education in the SEC is 2nd, no, 3rd rate. Principals from southern schools hire Northern college graduates w/o an interview because they know they are smart enough to diagram a sentence if they have a degree from a northern school.
      SEC schools all fund the bare minimum of sports(13 I believe) required to be considered D1 so more resources can be poured into football. Certainly their choice, but let’s not pretend that the SEC is playing with the same deck of cards.

    As someone who teaches at a University, I do think that student-athletes should be able to major in their sport the way a dance or theater student can major in their craft.

      Just a reminder that dance and theatre majors still take all the general
      education classes that all students do. Also, think about the additional
      classes in history, anatomy, research, and theory these students take
      dealing with their craft. If that were instituted in sports, it would,
      of course, be a viable course of study. There are things that come close
      now, though, such as majoring in coaching, physical education, or
      recreation (depending on what you hope to do with that sport after
      graduation). Not everyone can go on to pro sports (or careers as dancers
      or actors), thus the students must be prepared for other related
      careers.

    just the post itself merits an asswhipping, Bench the bastard until his grades get above 3.9 or else kick him off of the team for sheer embarrassment.

      well, considering he’s a 3rd string benchwarmer, his lack of skills have benched him. ironically this is somebody who *direly* needs what these classes have to offer.

    Without an education I can tell you that a 3rd string quarterback is not going to get far in this world. There are many students who would love to get “paid” to go to school. Most will have thousands of dollars of debt when they get out of school. He should be thankful that his “talent” got him into school and a scholarship.
