The three fundamental facts of college basketball

- Roughly one-half of all black basketball players and one-sixth of all white basketball players have IQs below 85, a level at which it is pointless for them to sit in college classrooms.

- Having a basketball team can generate a lot of money for a college, but colleges aren't allowed to pay players a salary, so vast amounts of money are channeled into recruiting and bribing athletes.

- The good news is that there is so much money to be made from college basketball that the odds that a talented athlete will be prevented from playing just because he's a complete idiot in the classroom are nil.
