And I'll eat my right toe! Ugh, I hate recruiting. The best recruits are going to be good no matter where they go. Different schools will develop them a little differently, but most will end up being really good players going to any of the top schools with great coaching. For those that only stay one year, it matters even less. Though I will say this: Austin has improved tremendously on both sides of the ball so far this season. I suspect much of the offensive improvement would have happened had he chose any of the other top schools, however, I have to wonder if any of those other schools would have developed him defensively as much as K and Staff had. Something to think about. Plus Austin and Doc have commented on how K has challenged Austin in numerous ways vs just letting him do whatever he wants. He has not been coddled. Have to wonder if other schools would have taken the same approach.

I doubt seriously we have seen the last of that.
The Carolina Way:
169 student-athletes had at least 1 semester where the grade in their paper class either pushed or kept their GPA above 2.0. At least 1 semester each of those students had recalculated GPA (excluding the paper class grade(s))below a 2.0. This includes 123 FB players, 15 Men's BB players. 81 students earned degrees from Chapel Hill whose recalculated final GPA excluding the grade(s) from their paper class or classes was less than the 2.0 required to graduate.
