Default GT adds patsy major for athletes

Old news, but if it was posted I missed it. I was unaware this transpired until I stumbled across it Googling.

At least The Hill acknowledges it can no longer compete against the serious teams in the ACC let alone the retards from Athens when it starts every year in a deep self-inflicted hole.

Could have sworn HTS was around when I was a student back in 2009.

Sure CE is just moving poop through a pipe, but I wouldn't call it a patsy major.

I actually took that class. It was as awesome as you think it is. Yes, I am a total nerd, and I have no shame.

So I am not sure if this is real or not. But if it is true, I don't really see how this improves things if SA's are still required to take Calc 1 and 2...

Calc is 'hard', but not as hard as it is when you have 3 other hard classes in the semester in addition to all your football and being an 18-21 year old kid stuff. As long as you don't smoke weed erryday and never go to class, it goes a long way towards making it less of a monolithic challenge to remove all of the other distractions.

That makes sense...do you think the perception will change though? A recruit still sees the barrier of those two courses in our curriculum verses another school?
