Everyone's heard people whisper that D-I athletes, especially in football and men's basketball, are not real students.  Sure, there are a handful of Emmeneckers each year who actually represent -not just play for - their school. And football programs like Drake's, built on the D-III model, are full of people who don't need jock courses to get good grades.  But for the most part, D-I revenue sports are minor league pro teams.  

The NCAA has denied this for years.  So I was shocked to see the graphic (link) below, which compares D-I to D-III, and gets dangerously close to honesty.  In particular, check out the last part, where it flat out says D-I athletes are separate from other students. So the emperor really doesn't have any clothes.

As you can see, the graphic was indeed produced by the NCAA.  The only explanation I can think of is that the NCAA has different media relations people for D-III than they have for D-I.  This is not the product of a D-I flack.
