I didn't read Sidewalk Jacket's comment the same way. That you do not need a "GT degree" does not mean one does not care about academics ... just technical/science programs. Tech is not one-size-fits-all I would guess. And don't you think it is slightly dismissive to suggest that by going to "other schools" one is trying to skate by? I doubt seriously that the new Bback Skov thinks he skated at Stanford. Lots of good football players have zero interest in the skills GT features, and that is neither a knock on them or on Tech. But maybe I am misreading your comment, too.If that is the case then GT is probably wasting a scholly on him because unless he is a starter as a Freshman, he probably won't be at GT long enough to impact the program. With the way the NCAA requires progress now, a GT SA has to be focused on academics. If you don't care about your academics, there is no place to hide at GT like you can at other schools. ...
