    most everyone on this board could sleepwalk to a 3.0 (2nd team all0big XII?)....in today's college. you have to TRY to not make C's. like skip tests or something. a C is an F, basically.

    grade inflation.

    queue: hero stories of never going to class.....etc.....3,2,1......

    you thought you were getting away with it, but more likely is the Prof didn't care.

    Personally, I think MY two parent family meant everything to me; shaped who I am today. I hope to provide that same value to my kids.

    It was more of a shot at Hawkism than actual two parent families.

    I also question the validity of conference "all-academic" teams in general.

    How many "all-academic" winners are majoring in the "football friendly" majors at various schools. I am not saying that CU or any other school doesn't have certain majors or schools that are easier than others but we all know that some schools might as well list majors for some of their athletes as "eligibility."

    A 4.0 GPA at Nebraska = 3.1 at Colorado.
