    It doesn't have to be true. If you plan your time well, you should be able to do both sports and classes.

    Joining a college sports team is an extra-curricular activity, something you attend to while at the same time attending your classes. There is no excuse, your professors will flunk you if you are lackadaisical in your academic requirements. If you are a member of the varsity team and there are tournaments where you represent the school against another school, there might be special or extraordinary considerations such as allowing you to skip class and take special examinations for those you missed but there is no escaping the responsibility to satisfactorily fulfill the minimum academic passing requirements. And there are no exemptions available at all.

    Depends on how good you are at sports.

    The colleges attitude to attention making- to sports over brains... sports bring in big alumni dollars...
