    Butch Jones "2.77 GPA For Our Athletes" Highest In The Nation?

    WTF?

    Seems pretty low to me.

    That's something to be proud of?

    I would be interested what Northwestern, Notre Dame, Army, and Rice are since they're normally at the top....just seems weird all of a sudden the Vols become the brains of the NCAA

    2.77 is really bad. I would not hire anyone with a GPA less than 3.5.

    For an entire football team, a 2.77 GPA is pretty damn good.

    Considering the overall graduation rate falls between 30-40% (4 years) and about 60% (6 years) for all students, that's not too bad.

    when i heard this i was like nobody fukkin cares what these kids GPA is or if they even go to class.

    all we care about is if they cover the spread.

    many black players major in African American Studies. If you ask me that is a waste of money to pay teachers to teach that pointless shit. But colleges are the biggest money making scam ever.

    where else do you see people advertising for a business for free? People even put bumper stickers on their cars to contribute to the free advertisement.

    these athletes are nothing more than show ponies

    can you imagine you're robbing a car and that beast of a man yells at you wondering what the hell you're doing to his car? he's 50 yards away, but he runs twice as fast as you and you have no shot at getting away.

    it's also funny that he's lucky to even be playing this year, and he won't start again unless he transfers, but he's talking so big and bad now.

    stay in school big guy

    If he is smart he transfers. I can't imagine he has any money to fall back on and sure as hell not education but he definitely has a serious chance of getting himself drafted now.

    They GPA averages do not mean anything and does not equate into a productive worker in the work force

    I had about a 1.5 and was a very good worker

    Athletes are .8 or so and are productive at sports

    i don't know a great deal about him, none of us really do i guess, but he seems like a guy who could play multiple positions at the next level.

    yeah ya never know. He projects well as an NFL QB bc of his size and arm strength but he is EXTREMELY raw.

    Also who knows what will happen if the Buckeyes win the national championship. Its definitely nice to have depth. Football is a rough game and in this system the QB is asked to run alot and injuries do happen. The last time the Buckeyes won a National Championship it was a freshmen leading the way ( Maurice Clarett)

    i hear a lot of people comparing Cardale Jones to Jamarcus Russel but he moves much better than Russel.

    I wonder if they get one GPA percentage point for being able to write and spell their name?

    Maybe they get to take something easy like under water basket weaving 101.

    What kinds of jobs do these goosfs get when they leave college?
