It’ll Be Dr. J.J. Watt Soon

And he didn’t even need to pass any classes to get this degree.

All that talk about needing to put in years of work to get a graduate degree is bunk. J.J. Watt is about to get one from Baylor without attending a single day of class.

The university announced Thursday that Watt would get a Doctor of Humanities in Medicine degree during Baylor College of Medicine’s commencement ceremony May 29.

I guess some institutions of higher learning make exceptions for people who raise more than $37,000,000.00 to assist their neighbors in a hurricane-ravaged city.

Congrats to the doctor-to-be. Not too many NFL teams can boast having a doctor on the 53-man roster, so chalk this up as another reason for Texans fans to boast about their squad.
