Always a stickler for classroom success, Coach Carroll took it upon himself today to ensure his players are making the most of their academic pursuits.
Carroll and senior associate athletic director Mark Jackson stopped by two classes this morning -- a sociology class and an exercise science lecture -- to check attendance and see if the handful of enrolled players were attending their classes.
Attendance was 100 percent, and with his mission accomplished, Carroll returned to Heritage Hall to resume watching film and preparing for this afternoon's practice.
"It's good to get out there and show that we really care about schoolwork," Carroll said. "This stuff is very important, and it sends a positive message to our players when we do something like that."
