A novel idea

According to the Tennessean, UT is considering instituting an extra attendance policy for its athletes. UT History professor Todd Diacon pitched the idea to AD Mike Hamilton after hearing about a similar program at the University of Florida, of all places. The plan is pretty straightforward:
Diacon's proposal was that any athlete with four unexcused absences in the same class automatically would be suspended from the next scheduled game or competition.
Other sports programs at UT already monitor class attendance very closely. Granted, they don't have close to 100 athletes to track, but I see Men's Basketball Assistant Coach Al Daniel roaming the halls and sticking his head into classrooms on a regular basis. Coach Summitt is reportedly even more fastidious with her players.
You sit in the first three rows and you go to class — period.
Sounds like a good idea to me.
