Of course getting the best players possible into a UConn uniform means something to me, I wouldn't be hanging out on this board if that were not the case. However, I just don't think you can berate the grad school admissions folks for this. Many seem to be looking at this situation in a bubble. Like McNeal's grad school application just showed up last week. McNeal and the staff obviously knew approximately what his GPA was going to be well before his studies were completed as the last couple of grades during the summer do not have a drastic impact on GPA. Admissions likely told all involved that it was still possible to get in, but they need to see other results (GRE, interviews, recommendations ect..). Maybe they were waiting in GRE scores to see if there could be more "flexibility". There is a reason he chose Louisville among the many schools that he could attend. Hell the kid is from Minnesota. Ya don't think he would want to play back home or in the B1G. Ya don't think Minnesota, Indiana, Purdue or other B1G teams could use a proven reciever. The bottom line is he was probably told "no way" when approaching their grad school admissions.
