Dating athletes in college
Harper, executive director of the University of Southern California’s Center on Race and Equity, has released a new study highlighting the disparities in graduation rates among black male athletes compared to the rest of the student population.
This is his third edition of the report, dating back to 2012, and shows that the graduation issue persists, as does the "overrepresentation" of black men on football and basketball teams.
However, there is absolutely no evidence of that, and Burke subsequently filed a defamation lawsuit. Her husband, Kevin Barker, played 126 games in the big leagues as a first baseman, and in 2006—while Mae was in Boston working for NESN—he spent some time in Toronto. He hosts a baseball show on the FAN 590 in Toronto.
, started dating Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder in 2012, and by the end of the year they were married.

The top three institutions for graduation rates of black male athletes were Northwestern University at 88 percent, followed by Vanderbilt University and University of Notre Dame, both at 86 percent.
"I would say one of the things surprises me is the durability of the inequity, given all of the rhetoric of the NCAA commitment to student athlete success,” Harper said in an interview.
“The NCAA in recent years produced these television commercials that said black male student athletes in Division I graduate at higher rates, and that’s just not true.” As Harper’s report identifies, it’s at best a half-truth.
Interestingly, Tappen's relationship with Leach, who was in the Bruins' system from 2004 to 2007 and even played a couple of games with the big club, didn't prevent her from landing that job with NESN. So NESN removed her from their Red Sox coverage and gave her a studio gig...until they finally just decided to "let her go" altogether back in May.
Presumably, this was because she worked mostly as an anchor, not a reporter. This is the reporter-athlete hookup that really made waves. (Reports say Dell had already been looking for new work even before her role changed at NESN, so it's not like she got screwed here.) These days, things are definitely looking up for the former Red Sox fan-favorite.
