Aolnews.com recently released a study on school drug policies in college football. In the study, by AOL's FanHouse, they investigated the drug policies of all 68 automatic-qualifying BCS programs.
The results, much like oversigning, was yet another black eye to the SEC. It once again showed that too many colleges, coaches and administrations place a higher value on football than they do the overall character and development of the student athlete.
In this article, I will reveal the findings of the AOL FanHouse report, and I will also grade each college's policies in regards to drugs and the student athlete. It should be noted that these polices are in regards to street and/or recreational drugs. Matters of performance-enhancement drugs are handled directly by the NCAA.
I also want to challenge you to read this article as a concerned citizen and not as a fan. The fan in us wants our college to win by any-means-necessary. However, we must keep in mind that these programs are helping develop these 18-22-year-old boys into the men that they will be.
