We've had this discussion many times here and someone will come on and deny it happens, but I cannot for the life of me understand how a couple athletes, who can get into most any other school across the country, so taints our pristine reputation that the administration just can't make exceptions.
How does a student who spent years at another major conference school that isn’t terrible (really irks me to say that about UT because I hate them so much) not qualify academically? The only thing I can think of is he failed multiple classes but he was always eligible so that doesn’t make sense.
Yeah it makes no sense a football player could get into Texas but not Illinois.
yea , I can believe that . It’s entirely possible (just speculating here ) that his decision to leave UT had a lot to do with academics down there vs playing time / depth chart issues .GPA is baaaaaaaaaaaaad.
