    12% Graduation Rate---Help!!

    The 12% graduation rate was for basketball, right? It couldn't have included football.

    I'm discussing with a co-worker and can't get into DMregister's website.

    I believe the period was from 96 to 00, but was for basketball only. Help!

    Damn McCarney can't even graduate his players...he should have spent more time with Will and Curt in the classroom.

    I'm only joking...I don't want to **** off the anti-Mac crowd.

    Thanks for the help. I can't believe that any coach wouldn't be immediately fired if their fball team had a 12% over 4 years.

    Bball is bad, but they have fewer #'s to work with.

    Hoops can't have legions of walk ons who buoy the stat so the heavily recruited "student" atheletes who rarely get a diploma.

    I would love to see the graduation rate for starters in the NCAA for hoops and basketball. I bet it is RIDICULOUS. And not because so many leave early to go pro, that is probably 5% or less in football, maybe 15-20% in hoops? That's what you get when you play minor leagues for professional sports. I really feel bad for great atheletes in hoops and football who just cant cut it at a University.

    It is too bad the atheletes don't take more advantage of the free education but we really can't blame them for taking the money when present. NCAA rules preventing them to have jobs/ earn money outside of the NCAA limits their willingness to stay. Then combine that with the talent of athletes who know they are just there to showcase talents for a couple years to get scouts attention. For instance when Katzenmoyer (spelling) was at Ohio State taking golf courses. He flat out admitted he wasn't there for an education, he was there to get drafted by the NFL.

    Aren't there usually 3 walk-ons on the bball team w/13 schollie players?

    What's the % of walk-ons on the football team? It's probably close to the same % as bball.

    If I was a college athlete with any chance to be a professional, I have to think I wouldn't care at school at all as long as I remained eligible. Heck I really didn't care about school as it was.

    Well, if there were three of 16 players as walk-ons in basketball, that would be about 19% of the team. I think there are at least 100 (and probably more) football players. so that's about 30/100, for a 10% increase.

    Also, the football team has been pretty stable for the last ten years. The basketball program has been in a lot of flux, and it's not like we didn't experience ungodly attrition under Eustachy and some under Floyd. I think if you removed players who transfer and players who leave early for the NBA, Numbers would increase across the NCAA.

    That WILL change with the Greg McDermott era.
