Re: Seems stupid but have to look at them wanting to go where

There are a lot of strange decisions made by recruits' families, but it is strange only from the perspective of a person who graduated from UVA and knows the benefits--like I assume many on this board. If you have parents who went to WVU or ODU, for example, they may not have the most expansive understanding of how much better off their daughter might be with a UVA experience. The comment on being a business major at Radford or an Anthro major at UVA is a great comment as well. So many of the UVA athletes are populating majors that may not actually make them better off in the long run. It is one thing if you have an interest in Anthro and want to be an Anthro scholar. It is another thing if you are looking for the easiest way to get through 4 years so you can play ball. The latter is an unfortunate reality for a number of athletes at UVA.
