high school teachers are required to have a BFA and enough additional credits to almost equal a masters degree (many just take the extra 16-18 credits and get their MFA. also, you have to pass PRAXIS I and II exams. then every 2 years after you GET the teaching job you have to pass recertification exams and complete a minimum 18 credit hours to keep your job. EVERY 2 YEARS. a high school teacher who has taught for more than 4 years could be well on their way to a PhD.

and on top of that they have to deal with high school kids who are the second most infuriating group of people in the universe.
don't knock teachers.

Thats true, but guys with a good education and thought process have the mental game down in their mind. Assuming they don't suck, that gives them a slight advantage over someone with the same skill level (in theory anyway. people are always saying the mental aspect is 50% or something)

Still, we'll see how well the smart guys do on the show. Intelligence in a classroom doesn't always transition to creativity or innovativeness on the mat and in the cage.
Argh.... Dude.. any moron can put out a book nowadays... that is no sign of intelligence.. I mean Hilliary and Bill Clinton both have books.. Rosie O'Donnel has one... If You wanted to you can have one published inside of a week.. .. THere was even a book that was published with 350 pages of blank pages...
