Loosing Jack Driscoll is a big deal to the football program. But it is also a reminder that we are not an SEC university. The UMass school of business graduate program is not one of the best in the country for no reason. It's very hard to get admitted to and grades and GRE scores have to be very high. I do not know what Jack will pursue academically at Auburn but all the best and good luck down the road.

The UMass business school needs to get over itself and offer students in Jack Driscoll's unique situation path to pursuing an MBA. This was a major failure by the University. UCLA and Auburn had no problem whatsoever figuring out how to assist Driscoll pursuant a B school education while balling out as a right tackle for the football team. This is a big deal and it should never have happened.

^ How do you even know Driscoll wanted to go to Isenberg? We've heard at least three different stories from different reputable sources (beat writer, coach, major donor, AD). The situation sucks, but it is what it is.

"How," you ask? Because logic dictates that if he was accepted to an MBA program at Auburn, he had applied to the same at UMass.

Foolish decision by the administration of Isenberg. End of story.

Ryan McKinney said...

No, that's not how logic works at all. If A=B that does not mean that B=C. We've heard he was rejected from the coach, we've heard it was something other grades from the AD, and we've heard he never applied from Kennedy. So unless you have inside knowledge (which I highly doubt because that'd be a breach of FERPA and has the risk of destroying your source's career) we don't know the situation. Stop pretending like you do. The situation sucks. Get over it.

Yes, based on all the intangible hit points on JD, they needed to figure out a way to get it done and get him approved - but pure and simple, they did NOT.

The only lesson here, is to get the process improved and administrators to work better with our leaders so that this does not happen again.

I don't get why people think he should be accepted into Isenberg simply because he plays football. The only thing we know about him is that he graduated in 3 years, which can be done if you are on campus during the summer training for the season. Might as well get some classes out of the way. Isenberg doesn't owe him anything. Based on the success of the team the school admin's don't need to go out of their way to keep any one person here, the school itself doesn't benefit a whole lot with him being here. Do you think his presence will suddenly turn the team into a national championship contender, thus reaping the benefits to the university? I don't think so. That's all the admin would care about.
