According to a recent article in the Seattle Times about WSU football, going to the university in podunk Pullman can be harmful for your mental health if you are a student-athlete. Fully 25 WSU players have been charged with offenses that carry jail time- not a good environment for football players.
A bit from the article I found especially interesting was-
“Wulff’s challenges hardly end there. Like all WSU coaches before, he must sell recruits on the merits of isolated Pullman â€” population 27,030. He must counter the take of Courtney Williams, an ex-defensive back from Los Angeles who left with academic problems.
“WSU is a hard school to go to, man,” Williams says. “You ain’t got nothin’ to do but get drunk and smoke weed, and not go to class because you’re too tired from doing what you’re doing.” ”
Not good. Not good at all. If you have athletic football playing kids, don’t let them go to WSU… send them to UW instead!
