    This is what happens when you have a great athletic department staff, coaches, support staff for the athletes, and more importantly when you have athletes that are good kids who know the #1 reason they are at Iowa State is to get an education.

    Congrats to everyone at ISU.

    That is amazing! I wonder how much of this can be attributed to the Hixon-Lied Student Success Center (or whatever its called).

    I'm sure it helps but aren't graduation rates from several years in the past? If this is a 5 or 6 year rate, the Hixson building didn't exist.

    It is my understanding that the problem with this stat, is that it doesn't count the transfers or student-athletes that are removed from competition due to academics.

    Everyone is still judged by the same criteria, I would assume.

    Very good point, we all have to play by the same rules. A big well done to all athletic staffs and the support they've provided to the athletes that need it and take advantage of it!!

    I especially like that we're preparing them for success both on and off the fields of play!!


    If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right!!
