No, but your post made me think there was. LOL
No, but Kelvin did tweet that he got a 3.0 in his 2 summer classes. That's at least encouraging.
Keeping my fingers crossed...
On TOS some reliable posters are saying he had to ace this semester to qualify at UF, fwiw.
I’m not sure how reliable that would be if at one point Stanford was/is in serious running for his services.
What does that mean? A 4.0 instead of 3.0? Wouldn't surprise me as his GPA was pretty bad to begin with according to some total stranger on some message board.
I thought I remember reading somewhere someone claiming his GPA at corndog U was under 2.0. TIFWIIW
So using this logic should we recruit academic all Americans ad put them on the football team? Once there they can be whatever they want?
Sure. If an academic All American is good enough to play on our team, all the better. But that’s not using the logic of my post. My post argued that just because a scholarship athlete doesn’t necessarily meet the typical UF admitted academic profile doesn’t mean he/she is incapable of meeting “University standards” once admitted. And yes, once the individual is here, “they can be whatever they want.” That’s the very essence of opportunity.
Did you talk to someone from the Stanford coaching staff or did you read they were interested on a website? Bottomline, everyone (reporters, alleged-insiders, fakers, etc.) on these insider websites is playing telephone. It’s apparent that some are more reliable and measured in playing that game than others and provide reasoning or insight behind speculation, theories, etc.
I was trying to let people know that they shouldn’t be counting on KJ because he got a 3.0. The situation is more complicated than that according to multiple media and non-media posters who have been reliable in the past. But, leap to conclusions if you prefer based upon the fact that Stanford maybe/was/is/were interested in KJ.
Not following you, I tutored many a football player when I was at uf. They can improve their situations like anybody can, but to say they could compete with kids there with sat scores 500-800 points higher isnt going to happen. Nor could a normal student reach the gator standard on the football field.
Here we are again, hoping for a transfer.
Is it really any different than hoping for a recruit?
People need to start looking at transfers like free agency.
Sometimes a developed transfer can be better than a new recruit.
You must reaaaallly not enjoy gator basketball then.
Correct, it’s laughable
Pessimism only makes the journey longer
I believe we will go 10-3 again meaning three losses
After each the bridge jumpers will show up with tails of doom
But in the end a pretty darn good season
They only increase the pain of a loss while they subtract happiness after a win
Perfection is a journey that is tougher on the already perfect
Like Jean Delance, or Brenton Cox, or Van Jefferson, or Trevon Grimes, or Marlon Dunlap, or Jon Greenard, or Jacob Krull, or Adam Shuler. I would say transfers play an important role in todays world.
It’s the new reality in recruiting. Best to embrace it.
don't forget a Gator great from the past....Mason Halter lol
