UH- Academic Powerhouse


Recommended Posts

Not convinced a G5 or lower college football team can win at academics and on the field.

Not convinced we need "good kids" anymore either. Not felons (or too many). We seem to complain alot on this board, and over many years, about this or that coach who has no moral compass/scruples and is handing us whipping after whipping until they move up.

The good coaches can control the chaos enough to not have it blow up like at UH. Although, this applies more to P5. Those schools also have more resources to deal with problems.

 

Change my mind.

The question that is tough to answer.  "What is a bad kid?"  Do we use too broad of a brush to weed out supposed bad kids?  The simple answer is yes but who decides and can make it objective and fair?

Fake news... 15 to 20 players were out total, not due to grades.  3-4 were opt outs to prep for Senior Bowl and NFL draft. Several were missing due to injuries and COVID.  There were some academically ineligible but nowhere near 15-20.  Duarte (the reporter) retracted and clarified the story.

This is also the school that couldn't follow COVID guidelines throughout their first few games... lol 

BS too.  1st 5 delays and cancellations were due to to other schools, including UNT, cancelling.  https://dentonrc.com/sports/colleges/mean_green/unts-game-at-houston-has-been-canceled-due-to-coronavirus-outbreak/article_8a7d0257-2cf6-50eb-aa93-84f1adb16220.html
