NCAA needs to do an chemical analysis on the H2O coming out of the campus water fountains. There's gotta be some illegal substance that, upon ingestion, not only acts to enhance superior academic performance, at the same time works to assure excellence in athletic performance. Florida had its Gator Ade, Stanford needs to market its Cardinal Juice.
