Football and baseball are two different animals in this regard. Scholarship money is very limited in baseball, that is not the case for football. If it were, you see the same exact thing. Well, not exactly. Many of the footballers wouldn't qualify for Hope.Doesn't surprise me at all. All but one of our players who are from the state of Georgia receive the Hope, unless the numbers have changed since I last heard them. But if they're on the 25 man squad, they're getting a portion of the 11.7 athletic scholarships as well. Of the ones not from the state of Georgia, all receive some other partial academic scholarships as well. But the point is that scholarship $$ go up and down annually for a player, based on his performance on the team. For those who are on the team but not on the 25 man travel squad, the fluctuation is even more dramatic.
Georgia Tech baseball is also very fortunate to have alumni such as Jason Varitek and Mark Texiera because just the two of them have endowed scholarships (Tex has endowed 3 by himself) that are also available to help subsidize the 11.7.
