New Academic Record
« on: November 08, 2017, 02:36:26 pm »

We achieved a new academic record of athletes that graduated.


Unfortunately we are in last place in the SEC. #neveryield

Good thing we aren't a win at all cost school (whatever that means)

If you had $500k and increased it to $4 million but your friends still had more money, would you not be happy with that?

Good for the student-athletes. That's what they are first and foremost, students. Playing for teams that solely exist because of an academic institution. Good for them.

Funny this comes out the day before the BOT meeting.  Almost like he's trying to deflect attention from the poor performance somewhere else.  Seems like he's trying to sell a car with flood damage and hoping the buyer hasn't run a Carfax report.

Are they still at UACCM or somewhere else? You didn't clarify. If so, sure. I improved my score and even though their scores were higher, we're still at the same place.


Also, "UACCM in Morrilton" is redundant. That's like saying "U of A-Fayetteville in Fayetteville."

Sad that you would be happy with a sub-par ACT school, and in my scenario you'll be visiting your friends on the Hill while you live at home with mom during the week.

So, when one of our players breaks a school record for consecutive free throws made, or home runs in a season, the school shouldn't acknowledge it in a tweet? Are you aware that the new round of higher education funding is based on graduation rates? If our general student population was this high, we'd be in tall cotton, get it?

You've taken this so far from the original point it's laughable.

In a vacuum, this isn't mediocrity. It's the highest point the athletic graduation rate has reached in school's history.

Does the highest point in the school's history equal mediocrity?

It's not my fault you're so close-minded you can't see the intent of the Tweet.

Has nothing to do with the SEC. Has everything today with student-athletes at the U of A and their accomplishments.

Long didn't Tweet the SEC standings. That was thrown in as an agenda push. Long's Tweet deals strictly with the University of Arkansas. He makes no mention of how it compares to the SEC.

Great, send it to Washington, D.C. where I'm working on my third degree and settling for mediocrity. I'll gladly take it.

Rip up your diploma, by the way (if you have one). All that is is a participation trophy that you graduated college. Millions have done that, it's not important.

The issue with this is that Long tries to deflect and defend the poor performance on the field as we are not a "win at all cost program," that we value academics. The issue is we are last in both categories. If Long wouldn't make stupid comments like that, then people wouldn't make comments about this.

Good god folks.

“Yes, winning is important,” he said. “Now contrast that if you’re a win-at-all-cost program which we’re not and I’ve said many, many times we’re not, then you don’t worry about the academics, you don’t worry about the conduct, you just win.

“And you know what? When I arrived here 10 years ago, that’s not what the leaders wanted at the time and certainly that’s certainly not what we’ve delivered.

“Yes, we want to win. Yes, it’s a priority. Yes, it eats us up from the inside that we don’t win more.”
