“I think it’s nuts.”

If there’s one thing that scares me a little, it’s finding out that once in a while I think just like Paul Johnson.

“(If they adopt this proposal), is it in your best interests to make sure all your guys are under 3.3?” said Johnson, who is only verbalizing what every college football coach is thinking. “If you’re allowing a one-time transfer rule and tying it to a high enough GPA or whatever, what are you telling the schools who don’t want to lose their guys? What are they going to do, keep them from being a 3.3? You know how people are going to do it. They’re going to do what’s in their best interests.”

If the proposal passes, maybe everyone will make their players take calculus.

    I worried when he got hired at Tech, since he was Erk’s had recruited Georgia, won at Navy. Thankfully, his system helps us recruit! I listened to a podcast with Brian Stann (decorated Marine, UFC fighter) and his stories about Coach Johnson in Annapolis were pretty classic–to the point of angering me that Coach Johnson was coming across so well, lol

    Other than making them take calculus, how do you prevent a player from earning a 3.3 if he works at it?

      The same way they don’t fail even when they should.
      At some schools, there are teachers willing to work with coaches.
