Football graduation rates

This article points out the schools with the largest gap between student and athlete grad rates. One of the worst, unfortunately was GT, with a 27% gap between students and football players. The article also points out the weaknesses in the system, since it counts anyone that leaves as non-graduation, such as transfers and those going pro early. What it does not say is what years this is from. Certainly could point to a lot of things......hard GT curriculum.........more issues with academic oversight, etc.

I'm not really drawing conclusions here, just found it and thought it was worth pointing out.
