43 UT athletes named to SEC Academic Honor Roll

Forty-three Tennessee student-athletes from the school's three fall varsity sports were named to the SEC's Fall Academic Honor Roll, the league announced on Jan. 26.

Twenty of the 43 student-athletes hailed from the football team, 11 of whom were members of recent signing classes. The vast majority of the women's soccer team (13 players) was featured on the list, while 10 members from the Lady Vols volleyball team also made the cut.

To qualify for the list, student-athletes must carry either a cumulative 3.0 grade point average or better or had a 3.0 or better during the preceding academic year. Walk-on athletes are only eligible if they've been with the varsity program for two years or more.

UT tied Florida and Arkansas for the fifth-most SEC Academic Honor Roll members in the conference. South Carolina led the way with 66 and was followed by Alabama (56), Georgia (51) and Kentucky (47).Football

I remember when I was at Gibbs Hall that they used to put the athletes' pictures up in the lobby who made the honor roll. There never was a basketball player and very few fb players (despite having almost 100 on the team). Wrestling had a few but the golfers had the most. I guess they had to be pretty smart since they had to keep their own scores...

Huge congrats to these people -- well done! Let's face it, fewer than five percent of our college athletes will ever be able to make a living playing their sport professionally. The rest will probably leave their sport behind them when the leave college.

These degrees MATTER and they should be applauded.

Well done, Vols!

Yes I will comment as previous poster alluded to the help a degree provides in today's society. Congrats to those who are well on their way to achieving that shheepskin. To those who didn't quite attain those numbers keep striving for excellence and be proud of yourselves if giving it your best!

Wish I had my picture plastered on campus for making honor roll. Oh well, I always got scholarships so it worked out just fine.

My advise to all Athletes, GET YOUR DEGREE. No one can ever take it away from you and not a day will go by in your life that having your degree will not benefit you in some way.

You are right. In the past, it seemed as if everyone of them had the emblem on her jersey.

Wait a minute, where's snakeslipskin, aka brett and others, and pintobeans, aka generalrobertreeseneyland (disgusting), aka packerflowers and others? Shouldn't they be spinning this piece on these classroom successful football players. I got it, the reason these kids made it on the honor roll has to be Hart. Yeah, that's it. Couldn't have ANYTHING to do with Dooley.

They sure show up on the "Rubio leaving" and the "Football team struggles" articles. Hmmmmm...
