Credit where credit is due

The Dawgs did well in the NCAA Accademic Progress Rate. Several folks have broken down the numbers and what they mean.  For example, PWD makes it easy for the Tech basketball team to understand what the ramifications are.

One thing I do want to note, these numbers are a measure of progress towards graduation, thus they measure the number of credit hours earned per semester (the maintaining eligibility part of the equation) and academic progress (simply put getting grades to progress towards graduation and stay in school).  Georgia Tech, as PWD points out, failed to do that with the basketball program.  Yeah, Tennessee lost a men’s basketball scholarship, too.  Coach Felton should be commended for the work he did in the academic arena.

I wonder what Jim Harrick thinks of the APR?

A Georgia Dawg in the Mid-West alone with his thoughts.

BBQ, Ball and Bets

There's nothing like a sunny fall afternoon, pork BBQ (with mustard sauce, of course!), a pregame tailgate, and...betting online. You heard me right. With a laptop and an internet connection you can check the odds of any game from the 50 yard line. Now that's convenience and will make your tailgate all the more interesting when some dude mentions just how much of a good bet a certain game is.
