Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reports that Warren will earn on Friday a degree from Texas A&M (http://www.bostonherald.com/blogs/sports/rap_sheet/index.php/2011/05/11/patriots-defensive-lineman-ty-warren-set-to-receive-his-college-degree-on-friday/) in agricultural leadership and development, with an emphasis on agribusiness.

I feel real good about getting that done, and being able to walk up on that stage, Warren said. I just have one more final [on Wednesday]. But that wont be a problem. Im finished. Ill get my GPA later. It means something to finally have [that degree].
It's nice to see a player put the time to good use unlike some other players who's names I won't mention. :)

Dexter McCluster went back to school as well, I assume more guys went back.

I remember last year when people were tearing him a new asshole for skipping workouts to work on his degree...

Vikings linebacker Jasper Brinkley graduated from USC the same day I did this past weekend as well. (dude is a freaking tank btw).

Well by the time this lockout ends, I might have earned mine too.

Yeah, not really 'earned during lockout' so much as 'finalized.'

More of a 'year in the works with the ceremony during lockout' for Ty.

I liked him passing up camp & cash for his degree last year. Though, in retrospect, I wonder if there's something going on between him and the organization that was kept quiet.

"Did you hear I finally graduated?"

"Yeah, just a shade under a decade too, all right."

"You know a lot of people go to college for 7 years."

"I know, they're called doctors..."

More players should go back to school and the hurting ones can use the student loan approach to surviving the lockout.
