A little surprised it's Tennessee...what about Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, South Carolina, LSU, etc.

This could mean that Tennessee is actually treating their athletes like students... meaning they aren't getting test answers or having others write their papers, etc.

If that's the case it won't last long. 30 kids on probation is bad for business. If the NCAA was functional and smart they`d be all over this. 
 
When that team GPA is 2.5 and rising next year no one will bat an eye.

If the players were treated like actual students I wouldn't be surprised if 90% of them had a 1.9  or less. 
 
Just think that Terrelle Pryor was academic all B1G.

I think the title of this thread says it all!
It could almost be the punch line of some joke...like "what two words make southern football fans cringe"
