Understood, thanks for the response. 

I just recall this being a big point of discussion a few years ago, and my recollection, which can be spotty, is that someone dug into it and it turns out that UT doesn't have any academic policies more stringent than other SEC schools.

I do know that when Butch took over, we were on the verge of losing scholarships because too many players had GPAs below that required by the NCAA.  It may be that during those times the admin rejected a few partial qualifiers to avoid probation, IDK.

I don't think there are any issues now though.

BanditVol,

This could have been disputed by information and I haven't seen it.  Butch indeed, without any doubt, helped this program from the academics side.  For that he deserves credit.

If there are higher standards for our athletes, though, I would hope that the issue could be addressed.

Have a great evening!
