Looks like the football tutors may need some tutorial adjustments. I hope this means the football team has at least been studying the playbook and staying in the training rooms a lot. Don't we normally have at least 3 or 4 footballers on the Honor Roll? We might want to move the swimming team tutors across the street. COME ON, GUYS...SHAPE UP.

There must be plenty of "dumb rear ends" on the football team. Note that the basketball players of Pat Summitt are listed in quantity.

Was just a few days ago someone was saying Devrin Young and Tiny were doing quite well in school. Surprised they're not on here. Here's to hoping some guys from the hoops and football team can make it this spring.

Maybe our Football Players should take up Women's Swimming.

Good to see we have swimmers that are smart enough to have a schollarship.
I have said for a long time, the reason we have such a hard time running plays in football and so many throw up shots in basketball is because we do not have people smart enough to learn plays .
College athletes are not there to be educated. They are there to make money for the University.
There are a few exceptions. Some actually desire a meaningful degree.
