Since he reportedly only needed to take one class this summer and now needs three, does that mean he didn't pass all of his classes this past semester? The only other scenario I could see is if they didnt realize he needed more classes to graduate. If thats the case, its inexcusable that his advisors just now brought it up.
Since today is the day that grades come out (or a few days ago), it seems likely that this change could be due to classroom performance. Hope I'm wrong. The write-up seems to indicate its an advising issue. Hopefully that is the case, but does OU not review his transcript? In that case, is this not OU's fault as much as it is the community college's? I don't understand how OU could not help him out to know what classes he needs to take.
How the heck can he need 3 classes? How can that be an advisor's fault? James - there is much more to this story. 9 credit hours is A LOT to be made up in the summer - virtually impossible. If Garnder had taken and passed 12 - 15 hours per semester, he would not be in this problem. I am sure there is some blame to be placed with coaches and advisors alike, but ultimately it falls to Gardner. I highly doubt he passed 12 hours each semester the last two years. I don't know anyone who has accomplished the feat of 9 hours in a summer. Some colleges break up summer into two sessions, but it is still very difficult. I would say Gardner will not be in Crimson..at least anytime soon. This is disappointing but part of the game when you recruit..especially JUCO's.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
