    No, but Kelvin did tweet that he got a 3.0 in his 2 summer classes. That's at least encouraging.

    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. :rolleyes:

    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.

    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.

    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.
