Just to amplify Nick Blonde's (aka Sunshine Shane?) thread on the front page, look at Penn State's GSR and FGR numbers AND where we rank in all of D-1A. If we have a football culture, it sure looks like a culture that should be emulated, not condemned. When schools are setting up ghost courses and curricula, oversigning then dumping kids, and a thousand other shady practices, and WE are negatively singled out, it is a sad, sad day.
I don't do homework, but I bet the schools above us include Stanford, Duke, and Northwestern -- pretty prestigious company, IMO.
Graduation Success Rate (top ranking): 87%
- more than double FIU’s rate
- #9 in all of division 1-A
Federal Graduation Rate (bottom ranking): 80%
- at least double that of 6 schools
- #6 in all of division 1-A
(Props to TheWrathofQBEagles for providing these stats.)
Eat crap and bark at the moon, Emmert and Erickson.
