Boy, did you guys ever derail this thread.
Did you go to Tech? It's no walk in the park, even with tutors. This ain't FSU where handlers hound professors and write papers for the SA's and that's in the easy majors which they don't have any at Tech. I'm surprised more SA's don't wash out academically. That alone is a huge testament to CPJ and staff.
A Defensive tackle...looked good in his redshirt season and this really hurts our depth at DT moving forward.
This now means in the last two classes we have only signed 1 DT.
Makes the 2015 class crucial for signing good DT's.[/
And this is exactly why I would not get off my legitimate concern at the lack of big nasties in this last recruiting class....We needed to get Michael Sawyer. bottomline.
No but my mom taught at josh Nesbit's high school green county and I know people that played on his high school team and he managed it alright and from what I know he's not the brightest crayon in the box when it comes to academics. They get help cheese. You might have gone to tech but did you go in the last 5-10 years and play football? Didn't think so.
Yes they get help, but they'd still fail out if they did what 90% of other football players at other schools did. They still have to bust their butts in the classrooms and study halls and that's something most blue chips have no interest in doing.No but my mom taught at josh Nesbit's high school green county and I know people that played on his high school team and he managed it alright and from what I know he's not the brightest crayon in the box when it comes to academics.

I hate when we lose anybody, because it is so hard to get recruits to sign with us in the first place. It is being floated on other boards that it was a schoolwork thing. If true, he needed to go somewhere else. How miserable to be at Tech and not being able to do the work. Many of us, myself included, struggled without playing ball 20 hours a week. It is a grind, for sure even when you are all in. All collegiate rosters are in a perpetual state of flux. We need to adjust and move ahead.Has been granted his release.
This is a big loss for us.
The worst class that I took (twice) was Flight Dynamics with Panagiotis Tsiotras... I couldn't even pronounce his name. He gave us a test the very first day of class. The next day he handed them back out and told us that if we didn't get a passing grade we needed to drop the course. I got like a 50 something on and defied him thinking that he was just trying to motivate us... Nope, ended up with a D in the class and had to retake. I gotta say, I didn't get it anymore the second time around, but managed a C.I cannot remember the AE prof's name - I do remember the final - 4 problems - took me 2 hrs to get through the first one, and another 1/2 to check - didn't check - walked out at that point. I took it "out of sequence" the following quarter - had a arch prof, didn't learn a thing more and got a B.
Had a couple of arch prof's that wrote their own books and we were forced to buy them for their classes. Not quite the scam that the prof in the news was running
