    This is what I mean. We are top 50 STEM school in the world and STILL playing D1 football. And by the data, we're Top Quartile. I personally think that's pretty cool.

    Football is in a precarious position....thanks mostly to ESPN IMO.
    The NFL, MLB, etc saw the writing on the wall....if certain teams with a cash advantage, could essentially buy championships year in and year out...like the NY Yankees for example, over a short time frame, fans in other cities would loose interest and the league would fold.....it depends on a reasonable parity between the teams in order to stay interesting. College football is at the same cross roads. A small subset of schools have committed to buying championships.....Bama has tripled their spending in the last 10 years. I am not sure the NCAA has the fortitude to step in and make changes...if they don't, and the next few years see the same dozen teams compete for the NC, interest in the sport will really fall off. Combined with a general drop off in participation and the rising costs....it may be a struggle for the sport to survive.

    Is it unreasonable that I'm kind of terrified that most business majors don't take basic calculus?

    I understand the b school basically had no choice if it wanted to compete because no one else requires it, but still-

    Isn't a basic familiarity with the concepts of derivatives and antiderivatives useful in management? Not to mention the place of big data. Can you really grasp what an autoregressive integrative model does if you don't know what an integral is?

    If you're not going to be strictly financial controls it seems like only knowing accounting math leaves you poorly equipped to confront reality.

    Otherwise, I'm down to expand majors, but only with a deep firewall between the choices and football. Anything less makes the very concept of a student athlete meaningless, and I'm not down to watch unpaid labor with a GT logo on it.

    Yeah, I believe, if memory serves correctly, that CPJ came to GT with a 72% win percentage. That’s with several years at Navy included.

    Not really. Most of the management guys would subcontract this work to others.

    Do you expect binary answers to your questions? You won’t get them out of the powerpoint wizards.

    Um actually they are trying to run Snyder out of town. And you are comparing K state with GT? Shows how little expectations you have. You may be Paul Johnson

    So as CPJ says "it is what it is." Hope you realize making it a little easier for athletes wouldn't change anything you just said but whatever GT fans need that high horse to sit on

    GT should have hired Bill Snyder in December 1991 instead of BL;)
