John Urschel, a will-be 2.5 year starter (split time his SO year), not only graduated in 3 years with a 4.0 in Mathematics, but he just had a paper published in a scientific journal and he is now teaching trig as well. Crazy.
From the blog Dr. Saturday: It’s not uncommon for students to ogle athletes in their respective classes, but what about when one of those athletes is your teacher? For undergrad students in Math 041, a course in trigonometry and analytic geometry, they have the opportunity … Continue reading →
I'm sure Barrett Jones could do something of that sort. Too busy winning games and championships though.
At first I was going to laugh, but then I did some research. Barrett actually finished his undergrad degree in Accounting in 3 years, was taking Masters classes this year, and can play the violin. I'm impressed - tip of the hat to Barrett.
Also, I forget his name, but there was an OL at ND who finished his undergrad degree and played his 5th year with the team while in his 1st year of law school. Speaking as someone who has gone through the hell of 1L year, hats off to that guy.
EDIT: It was Chris Stewart.
It's just before 7 a.m., a lit-up Touchdown Jesus signals over a still-dark Notre Dame campus, and here comes according to the sports information folks the only man playing major college football while enrolled in law school.

Barrett is very smart, definitely right there with Urschel.
Depending on his grades, my vote would probably go to Chris Stewart. If he pulled off good grades in his 1L year while still playing football, I would be beyond impressed. Getting top-of-the-class grades in 1L year is an 80-hour-a-week job, and adding football onto that is absurd.
Nah, he only had a 3.5 GPA for undergrad. The kid's disqualified
Craig Krenzel laughs at that dood
Myron rolle laughs at this thread
And the whole country still laughs at Myron Rolle for choosing FSU
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Rolle did not have a 4.0 GPA, so he is disqualified.
Krenzel did not have a 4.0 GPA, so he is disqualified.
John Urshel never won a natty so he is disqualified.
Let's be honest, Craig didn't either... he was merely along for the ride.
All the you men named in this thread are impressive. Good to know that there are kids taking full advantage of a free education. Opposed to just being football players.
Well said?! He led off with "All the you men"...
Those guys are all academic heisman winners IMO.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
It's funny how the mind just skims over errors like that, lol. Okay... not well said... nice thought though
I know ponder had started his 2nd masters during his fifth year. Impressive to me
Nah Krenzel was a big part of that team. He wasn't Montana out there, but he was the second most important player on that team. He wasn't a Steve Bellisari.
You could have put at least 50% of the starting QBs in the country on that team and the results would have been no worse. CK wasn't even a 60% passer and he averaged well under 200 yards per game even in his best year. I doubt he was even the 10th most important player on that team.
It looks like almost all of our QBs under Jimbo has graduated early, because EJ graduated early too and is working on his masters. Clint Trickett also just graduated. The only one I remember who did not graduate was Devo Richardson and Xavier Lee.
He was the leader rusher in the biggest game of the year, featured two of the most dynamic running backs in college football

Psshhh... he gained 81 yards... he also was only 7/21 and threw 2 picks.
I believe Sean Taylor made an amazing pick on one, and Taylor blasted him while throwing for the other if my memory serves correct. Krenzel made every clutch play that year, and made very few mistakes #Tresselball
