I used to support CU's anti-JC policy....


...now I think it's incredibly arrogant.

There are many legitimate reasons kids may need to go to a JC before a 4-yr university. Some kids mature faster than others. Many have horrible home lives that make it extremely hard to succeed in high school. Many live in war zones where they are more concerned about survival every day than getting straight A's. It's crappy to hold it against them and, you're right, many of them flourish in college because they've matured or put the negative circumstances behind them.

CU could help these kids and their athletic programs by opening up to JC athletes and understanding that not every kid comes from a great family in the 'burbs.
