It's not always about football...

I saw this news story in our local Knoxville newspaper yesterday morning. As an alumnus of the University of Tennessee, and as a former lecturer there, I love reading about UT's academic successes just as much as I enjoy hearing about all the athletic wins. Knowing some of the fundamental disadvantages more than a few academic departments suffer on an ongoing and daily basis at Tennessee, I feel good knowing that former UT students all over the world, all the time, are making the most of their education - though they may never have stepped onto an athletic field or into a sport's arena in all their time at college - and changing the world in their own unique and incredible way.
