A private university in Chicago has become the first in the country to make video games a varsity sport. Robert Morris University-Illinois says it will offer between 45 and 50 athletic scholarships to competitive gamers who play an online, multiplayer battle-arena video game called League of Legends.

Nope. None of those older games. Proficiency in Plants vs Zombies is required.

And that is why a degree from any of the hundreds of public universities will always carry more weight than this private one. On their page it says they offer a degree in nursing studies...I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to have a nurse whose primary university thought video gaming was a SPORT. If it wasn't so sad, it'd be hilarious.

And that's another issue that'd be funny as hell if it weren't so tragic.

As opposed to tackle football injuries, I suppose instead you'd have to be wary of irate gamers throwing their controllers at you.
