JUlious Peppers' transcript is rather shocking.

peppers transcript is not surprising really, 1.86 gpa and lots of BS classes seems typical of a big football star.

Not sure whether I'm more appalled by the grades or by the classes offered. Doesn't look like he took anything that might prepare him for life after football, and the few "real" courses he took just smoked him. Don't know who he is, but I sure hope he's a white kid as he wasn't even acing the black studies courses.

NO he's black. 3 of the classes he actually did well in were taught by the prof directly linked to the scandal.
If this transcript is truly his it means the scandal goes back much further than previously thought.
He plays defensive end for the Bears now but was the big star player for the Panthers for years.
