SNL Mocks University of Alabama for Football Player Academic Special Treatment

During a sketch this week on “Saturday Night Live,” guest host John Cena played the role of a dumb Alabama football player trying to pass a course in order to be eligible to play in his team’s upcoming College Football Playoff game against Washington.

While two other students presented complex projects, Cena’s character presented bananas nailed to a piece of plywood, although one of the items nailed was actually an orange, to a panel of Alabama fans.

Despite an inferior project and obvious lack of intelligence, Cena made a 100 while his counterparts struggled.
