What most of these athletes compete in has absolutely nothing to do with the college they attend, especially Davis/White who attend Michigan only because they train close by.

Cheryl you probably chose the worst possible example considering Davis and White are Michigan natives from metro Detroit…

    I stand by my comments. Their figure skating has absolutely nothing to do with the BIG school they attend.

And how does that differentiate them any from those involved with bobsled, curling, and speed skating? Why them “especially”?

    Only because that is who BTN made the biggest noise about. You don’t seem very smart or simply refuse to understand – what they are doing at the Olympics has nothing to do with the BIG school they attend – there is absolutely no connection. No bobsledding, curling, speed skating or figure skating teams at any BIG school. This is like AAU basketball or volleyball at the high school level – they are not generally affiliated with a certain educational institution. It is a coincidence that they happen to attend a BIG school. For the figure skaters, for example – if their coach moved to Maryland and they decided they wanted to stay with her, they would be attending school in Maryland. Or they could be attending Wayne State or taking online classes through University of Phoenix. staff on 2/24/2014 @ 12:43pm EDT Said:

      Interesting. We weren’t making a big noise about it just to make a noise about it. It was simply fun to follow them. Many competed in hockey but we were interested to see others who crossed over, from football and track to bobsled.
