    Yeah, it's a good time for them to get a feel of the campus and meet some of their future teammates. I think it helps to build a sense of community on the team.

    We got to visit Rhodes recently. Very nice campus. Wasn't as comfortable in the hotel, but I don't know the town that well. The academics are comparable to Centre's. The campus is similar, although Rhodes has similar architecture on most of their buildings. They even mentioned they own their own rock quarry to make any future buildings the same.
    Coaching staff was impressive. we hear what I thought was good advice coming from the head coach.

    My son will be scheduling an overnight visit to Centre soon. That should allow a reasonable comparison.

    All the best and remember, what is important is where your son feels comfortable.

    My son recently had an overnight at Centre. Apparently liked it quite a bit.

    At this point we are just waiting for the financial aid information to help finalize a decision.

    Didn't Centre beat Harvard back in the day? Isn't it considered the biggest upset in the history of college football?

    Actually, Florida had a football recruit who called UF the "Harvard of the South" last year.

    But back on point. Everyone is always comparing their academics to Harvard, which begs this question. Why not Harvard itslef? They currently are offering free tuition to students who qualify, IF their family income is less than $55K. Just a thought.

    They're building fine young men at Louisville, aren't they? Sleep late, and we'll wake you up. Break our rules, and we'll still let you play. Come to Louisville, where kids will be kids and the adults will look the other way -- Gregg Doyel on UL.
