We have majors that athletes are often lumped into, especially


the athletes that usually would not qualify for UVA.

They have tutoring and academic counseling that are light years ahead of where it was before London. And fantastic tutors at that ;) (I tutored in two different majors)

We are not going to take some athletes lets say a VT would or a Rutgers (Kenny Britt) because their scores are just that low we can not risk them flunking out.

We are going to make them have a major and do work, which scares some away.

We suspend academically for one year, not one semester like many schools (I think ND does a year too)

Or we will dismiss you entirely like a certain DE for the Buffalo Bills.

The disconnect is the guys we need to compete with the FSU/Clemson (and I think Miami soon) for an ACC Title include people we have to skip over because of their academic profiles (not to mention ones that eliminate us). An opposing coach told a non-rev recruit that was a friend of mine (ended up here) that you are a student first, second, and third here and an athlete last, which was an overkill.

We are going to require more from them than many of our compatriots will which means we need to find the 3 star studs that were overlooked.
