Nice Tyler! Go Gators!
Add another commitment to the University of Florida’s 2010 cross country recruiting class. Charlotte senior Tyler Cardillo has informed FLRunners.com that he will be the newest Gator to run for Coach Todd Morgan’s squad.
- Hats off to coach Todd Morgan and the University of Florida program. Not only is he successfully recruiting some of Florida's best distance athletes, he is getting high quality young men and women. Tyler seems like an outstanding young man and it will be enjoyable to watch him run "close to home" for the next 4-5 year. Congratulations!
- Am I missing something? FSU takes 2nd in men's and women's x-c. They've won multiple track championships. And "everybody sees what the University of Florida is doing." The Clark story said he was recruited by FSU. I just don't understand why you one would not want to go the school that is actually qualifying for nationals.
- Congrats and welcome to Gator Nation. Look forward to moving down a notch in the all time list before your career is done!
- Tyler Congrats.
- @lanasat1 : Do you really think there is a difference between the schools degrees? I hope your smarter than that?
- @coachbutler As a senior this year going through the college app process I have yet to hear of the toughness of getting into FSU while on the other hand for years all you hear is how competitive UF is. Bottom Line: Everyone who gets into UF could get into FSU, but getting into FSU doesn't necessarily mean getting into UF. I'm not going to have this discussion on here, I will admit it was not smart posting that.
- @lanasat1 You didn't answer his question. He asked if there was a difference in the degrees, not entrance standards. The fact that you believe a degree from FSU is worth "dirt", make's you more ignorant than I first thought. You have never been to school at FSU. You have never had a business that employed FSU grads. In fact, you know basically NOTHING about FSU academics.
The FACTS are, you can become a great student no matter where you decide to go. Every University in the US will give you an opportunity to succeed, some more than others. Every year FSU has a couple of Academic All Americans in XC or Track. FSU has also had 2 Rhodes Scholars. Those athletes chose not to listen the crap that "lanasat1" and other FSU haters spew out and excel with the great academics that FSU can provide.
- @KBrnnr great to hear
- UF also has to have tougher entrance standards because more students apply there. Im not debating that, more people want to go to UF than FSU. But that doesn't necessarily mean a direct correlation to "worth of degrees".
- @KBrnnr So Harvard, MIT, Standford are the hardest to get into because they have the most applicants? You're more ignorant than I first thought.
Young man you have much to learn about many things. Hopefully you will get some guidance at the university or college of your choice.
As for KBRunner, I am assuming you only meant athletic Rhodes Scholars. Because we all know The Florida State University has had more than 2 Rhodes Scholars :)
- Boys, lets not get off track here. This should be a great time to celebrate a wonderful athlete making a tough decision to attend one of the many great universities that recruited him. This is not a proper thread or time to debate academic standards or the worth of degrees. This is a proper time and format to congratulate Tyler and the University of Florida and wish them the best!
God almighty a guy can't throw some smack talk around without it becoming a federal case? Some need to get a grip...
lanasat1@KBrnnr So Harvard, MIT, Standford are the hardest to get into because they have the most applicants? You're more ignorant than I first thought.
@lanasat1 Im gonna break it down for you. Maybe my posts will be easier to read in talking points.
1. It's Stanford.
2. The hardest Universities to get into according to "The Huffington Post":
"Harvard leads the pack of the most selective schools for the class of 2014, with an admissions rate of 6.9 percent -- down from 7 percent last year.
In Harvard's wake are Stanford, Yale and Princeton, all of which admitted less than nine percent of prospective students. Out of all the schools on our list, only Yale saw a decrease in applications from last year, of about a half a percent. Otherwise, this was another cutthroat year for applicants: Harvard and Stanford drew more than 30,000 applications each, and the number of students applying to Princeton, Duke, the University of Pennsylvania and Brown increased by up to 20 percent."
3. Again, the difficulty of a getting in to a school has to do with the amount of applicants in relation to the size of the student body. Ex. If Harvard gets 30,000 applicants and accepts only 1,500 freshman, they must have super high standards to cut out so many applicant's.
4. There are degree's at FSU that are worth more than others. This is the same at every University. Like any college a lot of it just depends on your major.
SpotAs for KBrnnr, I am assuming you only meant athletic Rhodes Scholars. Because we all know The Florida State University has had more than 2 Rhodes Scholars :)
@Spot Indeed. Thanks for that correction.
- Congratulations to Tyler, his family and his coaches during this exciting time. Best of luck for your Sr year in track and beyond.
And, Happy Thanksgiving to everybody on flrunners!
- @KBrnnr sorry mate like I said im not having your pathetic discussion on here. hope you had fun typing all that though!
- Congrats Tyler! Glad you're staying in Florida instead of going out of state! Interesting to read that you will focus on the 1500. I know you run the 800 almost exclusively in track, and are obviously a great long distance runner, but always wondered why you ran the 1600 so rarely. Maybe more this spring? Would be curious to see how "low you can go" in that event.
- My man, Tyler Cardillo.
You've come a long way from running a 17:14 at the North Port meet your freshman year. Shoot, you showed at the school at 6 am with your uniform already on! haha
Remember about what I told you bud. Run smart, kick hard!
