Ineligible players at Tech

AJC Sports section today is reporting that GaTech allowed some ineligible players on the field. Interestingly, there were some ineligible players in football.

Ten of the athletes were football players, three competed in men’s track, three in women’s track and one in women’s swimming. Names of the athletes were not released, and Georgia Tech athletics director Dave Braine said even the athletes themselves haven’t been told they should have been ruled ineligible.

I’m thinking – why? Obviously ineligible players didn’t help Tech. They could have let me on the field – I still have four years of eligibility left. Put me on the field!

    Maybe I shouldn’t bring this up, as it doesn’t make me look very good, but I taught Tony Hollings when he went to Twiggs County High School. He was ineligible because of grades when he went to Tech. Looks like he just quit and went into the NFL. I Googled his name and found out he plays for the Houston Texans. He wasn’t a bad student in my class, but frankly, if he’d been at the other schools where I’ve taught, he’d have been at the bottom — that school was an educational disaster. I just sort of lowered my standards. Had to. Anyhoo.
