Took the words out of my mouth. How does Michigan, Berkeley and Virginia do it?And also, how does Michigan have it figured out? Wisconsin? Penn State? All of these schools are in/above our league academically.
As an alum, the school’s academic rep is important to me. If we become Virginia/Berkeley/Michigan in terms of academics then I could see these recruiting situations happening and be more okay with it. But we’re a notch below that still, so it makes the “academics over athletics” pill hard to swallow.
