Freshman calculus is hard man!

More than 70 West Point cadets accused of cheating in academic scandal.
Instructors at the Army's premier training ground for officers revealed the academic scandal on Monday, saying it's the worst they've seen since 1976. Some called it a national security issue.

With a general ethos of Its not cheating if you don't get caught, this is happening at numerous universities.   Makes you want to ask your doctor about their academic life.

Army has themselves a regular little scandal.  Wonder if any of the wrestlers are part of the operation?

Do the international Army wrestlers attend West Point?  I don't know for sure but I thought they were regular enlisted army that trained in wrestling among other things.

Only commissioned officers and enlisted personnel can compete on an Armed Forces team.  While attending an academy, a cadet is neither.

The services have groups that train year-round in Greco-Roman and or freestyle. Army team for example is in Colorado Springs. Nothing whatsoever to do with West point team. Mixture of enlisted and officers but mostly enlisted. All these guys have Olympic potential in theory. Just like their boxing team and some other teams. I tried out in 1998 and hung with it for about 2.5 months but not good enough to stay long term. Its extremely tough training. Most guys ended up quitting or injured. Usually 2 practices per day.
