Educational Background: What University did Colin Kaepernick go to?

Colin Kaepernick University


Colin Kaepernick has proven one thing lately: he doesn’t always stand up for what he believes in. Recently at the center of American controversy, this 49ers player has chosen to sit out The Star-Spangled Banner.  He aims to use this anti-patriotic display to draw attention to racial inequality and police brutality across all fifty states. Before his actions drew the attention of red-blooded Americans everywhere, and spread to other players in the NFL, Kaepernick led his team to Super Bowl XLVII in 2012. Long before recruiters came knocking at his door, Colin dreamed of football. We will be examining his high school and college education on this edition of EduReview.

Colin Kaepernick School

Born in Milwaukee on November 3rd of 1987, He spent a few weeks with his birth mother before being put up for adoption.  He was immediately taken in by Rick and Teresa Kaepernic. He went from being the biracial child of a single mother to the newest member of an upper-class family. Following the rest of his family, a four-year old Colin moved to California at the age of four. By the time he was eight, Colin impressed his local football and baseball league with his throwing power. Colin can seemingly predict the future. In fourth grade, he penned a letter that described his future as starting quarterback for the 49ers.  When he entered John H. Pitman High School, he proved himself a versatile star both on and off the green; he was a first team all-district, all-conference, and all-academic selection. His first recruitment round went less than swimmingly. After graduating from high school, Colin enrolled at the University of Nevada on a football scholarship. After the team’s longtime starter suffered a concussion, Kaepernick took over as the school’s number one quarter back. Colin valued his college education more than sports; this is easily proven by one choice. He turned down an offer from the Chicago Cubs to finish his degree in business management. When the 49ers came calling after his graduation, Colin did not make the same choice twice.

    He exercises his first amendment protection while going against the old adage (and wisdom) about two wrongs not making a right.

    A small minority of police may have (innocent until proven guilty, which is also a right) abused power, but Kaepernick not standing for the National Anthem strikes out not against police (especially the alleged very few minority of those), but instead he takes a broad slap in the face of the white parents who raised him and all the veterans who risked or lost life or limb to keep Colin’s rights preserved. As a QB Colin got paid for putting the ball in the receiver’s hands, not for missing that sweet spot. How come Colin can’t avoid throwing this curve ball for an interception by the wrong team? Maybe Colin should have joined the Chicago Cubs where a curve ball is more appreciated. Maybe the CFL will take him? He won’t be able to prove the NFL team owners colluded so even this broad slap does nothing but poison himself further from employability in his core endeavor. His university days were in Nevada, not quite Stanford or Notre Dame, and he dropped out from there. I think he’s made some bad choices and I don’t think as many NFL buddies will keep his ball rolling once they see him drift off into a “what’s his name” has been oblivion. With his baggage he’s not likely to even be hirable as a network sports commentator, even on CNN.

    Wrong – there is NO, repeat NO, Constitutional right
    To freedom of speech in the workplace. The team
    Owners (their employer) dictate behavior in their
    Workplace – the employer who pays them. Behavior
    That does not reflect positively on the company (football
    Team) can certainly be ruled not acceptable by the CEO.
    Either Follow the owner’s standards of behavior while you
    represent the company (again, the football team) or utilize
    your free Speech right in the public domain.

    I literally just wanted to know what degree he ended up with, I was surprised to see the blatant bias of the writer of this article by saying that Kaepernick is un-patriotic (The author assumes this based off of actions explicitly protected by the First Amendment) and I find that the entire first paragraph is just poorly conceived and badly written.

    Him kneeling is unpatriotic? He is expressing his First Amendment right to Free Speech and saying otherwise is simply false. It also has no place on an education website.
