Georgia Tech football players were all but unanimous on how to move on from a bitter NCAA investigation into their team’s academic performance, which began in January 2018.
But one Georgia Tech player is taking his frustrations to the next level.
In a video posted to social media Wednesday, a student who goes by the handle @souljoe87 explains that he would rather take his case to the NCAA, which is currently considering whether the Bulldogs should be kicked off the NCAA Tournament.
The Georgia Tech alum says that if he wins his case, the Bulldogs could lose their bowl bid.
He says he would like to see a letter from the NCAA saying that he deserves to have his scholarship cut.
“I really don’t want the university to be taken off the tour, that’s what I want,” @saintjoe 87 tells his followers.
“They have a chance to win the National Championship and it would be a shame to lose that, that would be very disrespectful to my team and to my school.”
A Georgia Tech spokesman tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the school has not yet received the letter.
The university’s president said in April that the university would review its procedures.
The Bulldogs, who were the first school to win back-to-back NCAA Tournament berths, were one of only four teams in the country to win all three of their conference tournament games in 2017.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution has reached out to Georgia Tech for comment.
