Something I Did Not Know

I was watching the documentary on HBO called "Namath" about "Broadway" Joe Namath and his story of growing up in Beaver Falls, PA all the way through his playing days in the AFL and NFL. There was something I didn't know about Joe Willie Namath, the fact that he wanted to come to MD and play for the Terps. His dream of playing for Coach Nugent and the Terps died when he could not muster the minimum board score to gain admission. Turns out old Joe couldn't muster a 750(his score was an extremely modest 730) on his SAT which could not get him accepted to UM so Coach Nugent turned Bear Bryant and Alabama on to him to keep him away from any other east coast school. The rest, they say, is history. Turns out we have been denying admission to top athletes for years now, only to send them on to the football factories of the south.
