Depends on what you mean by academics. There are so many different ways of looking at it, but its all up to the student and how hard he works. However in todays world there is not much difference in graduating from Michigan than Alabama. Its all about what field you are in, and what you can put on a resume that really matters. If I had to choose between graduating with a computer science degree from Michigan or Alabama it would not matter, but if I had to choose between going into medicine and choosing between UAB or Michigan it would be UAB because of their Medical Program is way above most schools. On a resume if I graduated from UAB and wanted to be a doctor I would have a better chance than if i graduated from Michigan. The same goes for many high academic schools, but it all depends on the major and what a person wants to go into. Its up to the student how hard he wants to work to be the best, the school may accept a less knowledgeable person and they may put forth the effort to graduate above a knowledgeable person who did not give it his or her best in the classroom. And it is all about getting that degree, and that is up to the individual person no matter what school he goes to. And at Alabama our graduation rate as a football team is very good. I agree that Michigan is a great school, but so is Alabama. Each school has there plus and minuses but you cant argue that Alabama's graduation rate is very good.
Michigan's Medical school is a top ten school, though I get the point you were attempting to make there.
No and fuck you hater

Carter is a UGA/FSU battle
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.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Hand = VT still?
OK with everyone predicting him Bama I though they were the favorites.
Thanks i didnt know the logistics of Michigan's medical school. But yeah you get the point im trying to make. However UAB is an UofA funded school, just as UAH is with their engineering programs. Its a different time we live in, and getting a degree from any school is something to put on a resume, and that is what actually counts
If we have Kirby Smart at the end of the year Lorenzo Carter is all Bama. Even without Smart we will be the favorite
True. We have finished second for alot of the elite DL recruits. Hopefully that will change this year with Lo Carter. I believe Hand will be a dogfight with UM and UF.
In the end im not that shocked he dropped him
VT is not desirable place when top notch programs are kicking down your door
Carter is a 4-3 DE all the way
We are....Nova is FOS.
You will see
FSU and UGA will make a huge push this summer and i see FSU's DE success and 4-3 system winning out
FSU goes toe to toe with Bama and wins sometimes, not worried about Bama here at all
Honest question about "Crystal Ball"... Are these picks basically he's down to these schools I'm just going to pick one as early as possible even though he may not be favoring it so I can get more recognition for having it picked early?
I don't have any idea how it works from the analysts perspective and would appreciate the insight. I don't pay attention to any of the analysts crystal ball pick and IMO it is kind of ridiculous
It's ok brah, you were wrong. Now you can get on the Hand = Michigan bandwagon.
tOSU is arguably the best school in the country for Sports Management. He can say it's about academics... Clearly something else is higher on his list of priorities.
Because in reality we are the best fit for him but he seems too butthurt that his first trip to Columbus had some minor inconveniences. Soft as shit imo.
I love when Mich recruits/ potential recruits talk about academics and then go after that powerful "general studies" degree. Mich has great academics, too bad they steer their athletes in a different direction...at least they have in the past. It may be different with Hoke. I hope so.

"However in todays world there is not much difference in graduating from Michigan than Alabama"
The average student who graduates from Michigan is far more employable than the average student who graduates from Bama.
"Its all about what field you are in, and what you can put on a resume that really matters."
Very true. And GPA.
"if I had to choose between going into medicine and choosing between UAB or Michigan it would be UAB because of their Medical Program is way above most schools. On a resume if I graduated from UAB and wanted to be a doctor I would have a better chance than if i graduated from Michigan."
You're kidding, right? Michigan is one of the most prestigious medical schools in the country. UAB isn't on anyone's radar for medicine.
"And at Alabama our graduation rate as a football team is very good."
This has nothing to do with how good the academics are at the school. All it means is that Saban makes sure his kids are going to class, or he's found enough athlete's classes to get them through.
"I agree that Michigan is a great school, but so is Alabama."
Michigan is one of the top public universities in the world. Alabama, on average, is nowhere close. There may be certain majors/programs which are equivalent, but on the whole, you're kidding yourself if you think the schools are even remotely equal academically.
I heard he was too slow for Urban only sub 4.5. He would have brought down the speed board. Scraps
We won't give you guys Hand like we did with Poggi.
Still don't see Michigan being the choice though
