On the other hand, he is doing a little bit better than James Franklin. :098:

Does Michigan's academics affect their recruiting?  Is that a thing for them?

Not really because they push many of their players into a major called General Studies.

I don't know WTF that is.

You study generals?

Consumer economics is one major I see a lot of players claiming.

You can keep a player on an NCAA approved track pretty easily these days, and anywhere, even tough places like UNC.

When I was in school, the football majors included Spanish and "Business Education".  You find a professor somewhere who is a football fan, he won't flunk a player.

Have to ask 847 about that

different definitions of "pretty easily"

some a bit tougher than others, but all have "football" classes and majors

To stay qualified you have to show progress towards graduation, right?  And the criteria are pretty lax.  The NFL bound players only need three years, and they really don't need that.  Stay eligible the first and second year, and part of the third, and bye.  VERY few players these days turn up academically ineligible, I can't recall the last one of any note.  It used to happen from time to time, some player would relax and miss the bowl game.

Now they have tutors staying on top of them ensuring they go to class at least.  Tutors may also help "in other ways".

I would see lab reports come in identically copied from the same source with the same spelling errors, kids from the same fraternity.  I took two to student court for cheating and they ruled I did not see them cheat.

Perhaps Harbaugh should have looked closer at McCaffrey?

His younger brother, Luke made his first start for Nebraska,  ran for 67 yards and a touchdown. He completed 13 of 21 passes for 153 yards and another TD, plus one interception that can be attributed to simultaneous pass blocking whiffs by his veteran left tackle and his rookie right tackle.
