I am not sure how this class is going to help the university return to the days. You cannot take a year off and expect gt to stay . Good luck

Re: Real Bass "I'm surprised by how many jc players u picked up." Very good point. I agree. Let's hope there's some explanation when Whit meets w/ the media after nat'l signing day.
