All valid observations. How much any of these issues impact on individual players impossible to gauge. Agree tho,that it seems likely that athletes at LU have a challenging adjustment to LU both academically and sociall. Not discounting the higher level of athletic competition but that is a given going from HS to D 1. Probably is easier for middle class kids coming in regardless of race. No doubt race is an ongoing issue nationally and to a lesser extent at LU. Racial diversity at LU has improved markedly over the last 20 yrs. Now there are well over 300 black students at LU. Not enough perhaps but certainly not insignificant.
