Myron Rolle, a safety for Florida State, has a 3.75 GPA and finished his undergrauate studies in just two and half years, according to Larry Brown Sports. Now, like so many student-athletes before him, he has to balance his team’s games with his interview to become a Rhodes Scholar.
The ACC announced Monday that FSU’s Nov. 22 game at Maryland will kick off at 7:45 p.m. on ESPN.
Rolle will be in Birmingham, Ala., that day to interview for a Rhodes Scholarship. He should be done in Alabama by 5 p.m., CST, which should give him a shot at hopping a charter flight to make the game by halftime.
I applaud Rolle for his work ethic, and I hope he gets the scholarship to study at Oxford. But I refuse to be impressed that he got good grades at Florida State. I’m more impressed with people who graduate from clown college. Although, I understand FSU does offer some rigorous ballon-animal courses.
