"Higher" Education

David Post of the Volokh Conspiracy on the final exam "given by Jim Harrick, Jr., the former assistant basketball coach at the University of Georgia (and son of Head Coach Jim Harrick, Sr.) in his class on Principles and Strategies of Basketball in 2001." Questions included the following:

'How many goals does a basketball court have?' [Ans: 2]
'How many halves are there in a basketball game?' [Ans: 2]
'How many points is a 3-point goal worth?' [Ans: 3]

What an embarrassment. Much more so if we then compare it to the French grading system.
