    I found this on the Stanford board and I always thought it was a pretty cool way to compare graduation rates for the main sports in football/basketball, but also all of the sports combined.

    Apparently going to Arizona is the best way to guarantee that an athlete won't walk away with a diploma.

    Well, this year's Kentucky basketball team will have zero graduates under Calipari. Look for that average to drop...

    Graduation rates have no correlation with actual education that may have taken place. Schools like Nebraska do a good job of making sure kids get a diploma, not actually educating them. Many kids think the NU way is important. Many educators in Boulder would argue that.

    I know, but it is interesting to compare graduation rates. Oregon may graduate a fair amount of its players, but there is about 3 or 4 schools in the Pac-12 I would rather have a degree from.

    Did not all seniors on CU's BBall team graduate this year? I rarely buy into surveys like that. I have no interest in delving into their methodology. There are way to many variables that go into things like grad rate.

    I'm not sure about Carlon, but I believe he did. Austin and Trey did.

    I will point out the same thing that everyone else has. First, I don't doubt the PAC-12's academic status. But, what are these kids getting a degree in. Is it physical education or general studies?

    These are good for numerous reasons. However, for CU to be back it's important to have your grad rate high (underclass that declare don't count against you) because it helps recruiting moms. A good percentage of these kids come from homes where their parents don't have a college degree and a lot of their parents want their kids to do better than they did. I hope Embree and Bz and every other CU coach feels strongly about this.

    It's a 4-year aggregate. So ours will be climbing like crazy over the next few years.
