    I heard its not a requirement for anyone to receive a degree at FSU because it doesn't mean anything in the real world. So that option may be available.

    Doesn't this make you wonder how many other coaches never actually graduated? I mean, he can't be the only one I wouldn't think. A blatant claim on your resume about a pivotal degree that you never received takes some nerve. It makes me wonder if this isn't more common place and could be why some don't balk about lying about it.

    If you're going to lie about a degree, why not aim high?

    I guess that he never drove through Lexington with his windows rolled down.

    After watching the HBO Bryant Gumble special last night, even if an athlete has a degree it may not mean much.

    Anyone else catch the show?

    I'm about to move and won't have HBO till after. I'm hoping to catch a re-run. From what I've read, it sounds like it was accurate but that HBO might have oversold it a little? I'm not even sure what people mean by that in this instance. What did you think?

    This is hilarious.

    I got my job because of my Doctorate from Yale.

    They haven't noticed the duct tape on the diploma in my office yet ::knockonwood::

    Their degrees were the sum of bs classes that either did not require attendance but a paper at the end of the term and other classes like yoga, intro to tennis, and Swahili. The majors were called Multi-Interdisciplinary Studies and General Studies. In other words, their degree consisted of a collection of easy, non-related classes that are easy to pass.

    I was saying that if this coach had one of these degrees that it would be meaningless anyway.

    Gator players have had some silly degrees over the years too. I got a kick out of rewatching the 06 National Championship game and seeing Adrian Moss' major listed as Leisure Management. Sounds awesome. I wish I had more leisure to manage.

    I guess it was a colossal mistake to claim he graduated. Oh well....

    Odd....Seems finding out he did not graduate from UK would have actually boosted his resume.
