Outback Bowl 2016: Tennessee's Kahlil McKenzie Tweets "GPA Ain't Save Northwestern on the Field"

If you ask Kahlil McKenzie, football skill trumps education every time, but did this tweet expose his lack of intelligence in some areas?

I mean, just because you go to Stanford or Northwestern it doesn’t mean you don’t care about football or that you don’t take it seriously.

Following Tennessee’s 45-6 win over Northwestern in the Outback Bowl on Friday, the Tennessee defensive lineman tweeted out, “That GPA ain’t save Northwestern on the field.”

McKenzie is the son of Reggie McKenzie, general manager of the Oakland Raiders, so I can understand why he’s not tripping off of having a good GPA.

He’s going to be fine regardless, but insinuating that the Wildcats got destroyed because they are all smart or intelligent athletes makes McKenzie and his Vol teammates appears as if their GPA’s aren’t important, and they’re only in school for one thing.

That’s fine for McKenzie. Legacy and good genes will ensure his NFL payday, but not every member of the Vols is going to the NFL.
