Its the right move to make for everyone. This allows Tenn. to recover and us to communicate more freely.

Not sure here, but they are a traditionally big program that is in a bordering state to his home. I like the position we are in because of his relationship with Scoota. He is also visiting Ole Miss Jan 26.

Why would he want to go to Arkansas? First, his hometown in GA is about an hour from FSU, second, he doesn't have to pass college algebra to enroll at FSU.

Of course, OM writer says his top three are AR, OM, and Texass......

I think the phrase "dumpster fire" should be as retired as Dick Butkus.

A grass or forest fire is much more dangerous and more likely to spread than a fire that is contained within a large metal container..

I mean your partially right. The college algebra ordeal is probably going to be the ultimate decision. But with the talent FSU had, to only win 5 games that's pathetic. Arkansas didn't have 1/5th of what they have and they only won 3 more games in the ACC....

You'll have to back up that 1/5 as much talent, I'm going to have to see some proof.

Best I can tell, we've split out 2 bowl games with the ACC so far, with the ND to go.

So, break down the average player's number and if we are in your 1/5 as talented, let me know.

Funny (odd) how the ACC schools look down on the SEC for academic reasons and never miss a chance to let you know it. Ironic (and infuriating)íif college algebra turns out to be the reason FSU gets a prized recruit.

23 is total FSU ranking added up.  120 is our total.  23/120= 19.2%.  Thatís pretty close to 1/5 which is 20% no?

What's the average player ranking/class, that's the important number. I doubt we are 20% of their average player, correct? Do 80% of their players signed in those classes have a higher player rating #?

He could, could also pass it during the summer semesters.  It very well could be that we are willing to wait on him, and doesn't want to.

I did, their average class rated 5% higher/player on the two years I looked up. I never said they didn't have more talent, they do, but we don't have 20% of their talent, probably more like 80%. Now, does this mean anything, not really, unless you play one another.

thats not how this works- not how MATH works.

We averaged 2.9* per player while they have averaged 3.75* per player. so, maybe 30% better. Still more talented, for sure.

So Henry may pass on SEC school because of Algebra requirement and the two experts on 247 are backing off on Sci Martin. So what's game plan on the LB position? Russell kid still a possibility.

Because he can "still" qualify. He may be a Dorian Gerald that enrolls two days after fall practice starts, or he doesn't make it, that's the chance you take if you sign him in February.

I will never understand why it's so tough for kids to pass college algebra. There are HS seniors that take it. It is required at any school you go to. Why would you delay getting it done at JUCO instead of a 4 year school limiting your options? I guess there's a reason he's JUCO, and maybe he's unaware and doesn't have any kind of academic adviser, but you'd figure you'd do a little bit of research for your own good. It's not like there's a lack of time due to social events at JUCO...

Dude, if that's what you got out of that show, you're missing the point badly.  The surroundings, parents and school systems fail a ton of these children growing up.  One doesn't inherently know how to study, manage time and have the right priorities.  Taking college algebra could prove very difficult if you've been pushed through system year after year or never had people actually help you.

But oh they have a college adviser 2 hours a week!  They should be able to walk them through algebra no problem.  You actually have to be taught how to learn before you can actually do so. 

I wouldn't have cared about academics growing up either if the right people in my life didn't invest in me and educate me on why stuff like that is important.  It's also a lot easier to process the fact that you may need to study and take school a little more seriously when you don't have to worry about where your next meal might come from.

Because like our politicians,   football players like to kick that can down the road.

I ask How can u graduate from any credited JUCO without college algebra???   So this is a JUCO problem.

I am sure this has been answered in other threads, but why doesn't FSU have a requirement for college algebra?

Also, are all SEC schools required to have this requirement for enrollment? (It is a conference directive?)

I would have assumed that the ACC would have academic requirements at least as stringent as the SEC, but I suppose I am mistaken.

Much of this is true but the previous poster is 100% correct that many of them just don't care and don't even try.  that's not about your environment, that's about self discipline,ambition and just plain common sense.  If someone is really trying, getting the tutoring help they provide and doing just the minimum they will still pass the course.
