Leinart’s Light Course Load

Posted in College Spurts, Gridiron at 7:20 pm by

The LA Times’ Gary Klein on the scholastic grind Trojans QB Matt Leinart is about to endure. Presumably, Advanced Going To The Movies was full.

Leinart, who announced in January that he would forgo a chance to turn pro and would return for his final season of eligibility, is taking only one course: ballroom dancing. The elective fulfills the final units Leinart needs to graduate with a sociology degree.

Leinart makes no apologies for a light load that will keep him light on his feet.

“I put in my work to get my degree,” he said. “I came back for my fifth year, and I’m taking what’s necessary for me to graduate. And that’s two units.”
