Can you be a Michigan athlete and be an engineer? In the Purdue game they mentioned that Jordan Morgan had already graduated with a degree in Industrial Engineering. When Da'Shawn Hand was vacillating between schools, he supposedly was discouraged from majoring in engineering at Michigan because it was too hard for anyone to be a Michigan Football player and an engineer. One of the reasons he choose Alabama (a lower tier school) was because he wanted to be a civil engineer.
Malik McDowell says academics are important, and posters say he should come to Michigan if that is the case. Can you take the academically rigorous courses at UofM if you are an athlete? If not, are we really the better school academically for athletes? (BTW I knew a lot of Michigan athletes who took the hard courses.)
