    Athletes are separate and don't reflect schools generally. I spent hours and hours tutoring Cal football players. Not stupid guys, just in over their heads and with an almost full time job playing football.

    wasn't intended to reflect on football players in general... and I reckon no school has a class on common sense

    I was commenting more on the players. I'll confess to thinking they were meatheads who got passed thru life. But most are not. Now I guess I met the motivated group who wanted and appreciated being at Cal. They were in over their heads, knew it and were asking for help not just to stay eligible.

    Most of the guys I tutored were linemen, either side, and the backup QB.

    Best usage of a colloquialism ever, OG picked up one of my physics texts, dropped it "awww, hell no!"

    Truly funny was several wanted motorcycle rides. I'm "you weigh as much as the bike. Fine, don't fu@kin move, you shift and we're in a light pole."

    I don't. Those schools didn't make VY who he is.

    They certainly didn't help him. Although I think UT has really tried to help him in alot of different ways.

    What do you think made VY who he is?

    Sad really. Not sure what he can do with himself at this point other than maybe coaching on a very low level.

    Some folks never really grow up. He seems to be made like that.

    I think since he was such a great athlete he has been entitled most of his life.

    I wonder if Vince is aware that "Latrine Engineer" isn't all that special. Hell, the position only required a Wonderlic score of 7 or less.
