Re: You're like


Appreciate all the feedback I can get. One issue with the current state of UVA athletics is that the course work is not what it used to be. Back in the day, you could find tons of student athletes in main stream classes and competing in the class room. These days it too often seems that the athletes are channeled into certain majors that are not terribly rigorous and leave them with little prospect for post-grad meaningful employment. In some cases, this is driven by coaches who don't do a good job of kicking the tires on recruits and are not interested in their players getting into the main stream of the University's programs and activities. Very good that men's lacrosse had so many on the honor roll. Lars is much more focused on bringing in good students and also seems to have a focus on classroom performance and what the guys do after school ends. I was very happy to see Zed was focused on heading to the NYS Trooper Academy, the team had a Seal candidate and some other highly-focused kids. Might be Lars' Brown experience where he dealt with a different classroom level of kid and expects that if the players he will bring in--good deal.
