Knowledge is good.

Malkom Parrish is a south Georgia kid being recruited by the Dawgs and by Georgia Tech.  He’s worth keeping an eye on, simply because of this quote:

How do Georgia Tech and UGA compare? “Aww, I can’t really compare them,” Parris said. “I know Georgia Tech has a higher learning than Georgia…”

The StingTalk board threads write themselves, don’t they?  Regardless of where he winds up.  Although I kind of hope the Johnson Doctrine comes into play.  As once said to Bogie, it’s the romantic in me.

    What does the Daily Faberian say?

    He is going to make the practice of radiology proud one day.

    “More me personally in my situation currently, I feel Tech’s education is higher right now and I love stereos so that’s why I want to be a radiologist.”

    He must have great instincts and ball skills because a a DB running a 4.6+ forty doesn’t sound like someone who will have much impact in the SEC.

    • You’d be surprised at the amount of DBs making a big impact in the SEC over the last 5-10 years that run 4.6s. Or maybe not, if you understand that every HS WR, RB, and DB running a 4.5 or less “magically” loses a lot of speed and become 4.7s after working hard, and physically maturing to be NFL combine participants.

    Attending GSU in the 70s, I had a close friend at GT. He had to write a term paper for a history class. He had me read it. The title he had given it was “The Effect of Communism”…and the entire thing was maybe six paragraphs. I told him he would get an “F” at GSU based on the title alone. He got a B. At GT..if it doesn’t concern numbers the ceiling for academic success isn’t that high.

      If I was hiring someone to write papers, I would probably skip the Tech grads…If was hiring someone to make sure that every widget I produced was within spec, I would skip the english majors.

      Tech people only think you’re smart if you’re a whiz at math. Most of them can’t write a simple declarative sentence without spelling, grammar and punctuation errors. People who are skilled at math ARE smart, but there are lots of things besides math in the world, and there are lots of areas about which one can be smart.

      a lot of those nerds can tell you Pi to twenty five decimal places, but they couldn’t differentiate between “lose” and “loose.” Their social deficiencies, while well documented, are a whole other thing.

        FWIW 81 I totally agree. The education one gets at Tech is mostly math and is basically useless unless that person becomes an engineer of some sort. It’s not just the lack of composition skills that is the problem–it’s the lack of a real college education (history, music, art, etc.) that results in an incompletely educated person at the conclusion of college.

    Correction: “…haz a higher learning…”. Fixed.

    Maybe he means radiology technician… a 3.1 GPA isn’t getting you into any medical schools…

    Didn’t Jethro Clampett always brag that he was “highest” in his class?

    Kind of a dick move not to clean up his grammar a little when quoting him. I believe that’s at the reporter’s discretion as long as it doesn’t distort the content of what he said. I’m not saying Carvell should have made him look like a scholar, but he could have made a couple of adjustments. We are talking about an amateur, here. Pros are fair game, but I think it’s kind of mean-spirited to quote a kid and expose him for being dumb.

    That’s not to say that I didn’t laugh; I just felt a little badly about doing so.

      “Kind of a dick move to not clean up his grammar…” Bobby, it’s called a “quote” for a reason.
