A list of people who are smarter than me

Georgia has released the names of the 277 student-athletes (a term I don’t usually use, but will in this case) who earned a 3.0 or better grade point average during the spring semester.

You can read the full list here. But here are some of the names that stand out:

- Gerald Robinson, the starting point guard and third-leading scorer for the men’s basketball team.

- Jasmime James, women’s basketball starter and a second-team all-SEC pick.

- Derek Owens, the reserve cornerback who was academically ineligible for the Liberty Bowl but came back to attain a 3.0.

- Christian LeMay and Chris Conley, the two freshmen early enrollees for the football team.

- Other notable football players: Michael Bennett, Brandon Boykin, Drew Butler, Mike Gilliard, Jarvis Jones, Derrick Lott, Aaron Murray, Christian Robinson, Richard Samuel, Branden Smith, Garrison Smith and Trinton Sturdivant.

Murray was noted for having over a 3.5, and Butler for having a 4.0.

- Russell Henley, the senior golfer who in May became only the second amateur to ever win a Nationwide Tour event.

- Zach Cone and Kyle Farmer of the baseball team. Cone is the team's cleanup hitter, and Farmer is the team's second-leading hitter and tied for the team lead in home runs.

- Gymnast Kat Ding, a junior who won the NCAA bars title.

Georgia reported that 54 percent (or 277) of it's student-athletes posted a 3.0 or better. Nineteen had a 4.0, and another 118 were between 3.5 and 3.99.
