Unless you're implying some sort of university-sanctioned academic fraud, in which case I think you have us confused with a school that wears a lighter shade of blue.
Pretty much every big 6 program commits de facto academic fraud. I know of (granted, hearsay) specific cases at my beloved Purdue. A school with, no offense, much more to lose in academic integrity than gain in athletic reputation when compared to UK.
I have no doubt that UK players go to a specific room at a certain time of the week. I suppose we can call that a "class." Again, this happens at EVERY major program.
This is why I want the NCAA to end. Institutions of higher learning are the least ideal place for minor league sports a person could ever imagine. It undermines them both and it should embarrass the universities.
