It's sorta weird. When you get in, you have the typical public perception of it being kind of quirky and not that tough, but it's not like that at all. Let me preface the conversation about college cheerleading with a quick aside about cheerleading in high school.
Floyd Mayweather has a history of violence and brutality -- and not just inside the ring. I'm talking about a history of battering women that spans more than 12 years. It's time we all do our part to stop domestic violence. Let's face the issue and make a decision that will send a message.
As NFL Draft activities kick off, let's not forget what's happening -- or not happening -- in school gymnasiums, parks, and backyards across the country.

As the 2015 NFL Draft quickly approaches, the same troubling question seems to permeate the potential pool of prospects every year: how well can one actually judge the character of a college student?
