Actually told to me as a Texas joke by an Arkansas fan, but you can use it for what ever school you want to:
Starting QB for Auburn is failing math and is in danger of becoming ineligible.
The professor, figuring the QB works better under pressure, makes a deal with him. He will have all of the students and fans come to the stadium and have the QB sit at the 50 yard line and answer one question to pass or fail the class.
The day comes, the stadium is full, the QB is sitting at the 50 sweating. The professor picks up the microphone and asks "What is 4 plus 3?"
The QB struggles along, counts his fingers, counts them again, and finally say "7".
All the students and all the fans jump to their feet at the same time and scream "Give him another chance!!!"
