Duck football players have below average graduation rates

10/25/2012: From USAToday. The FBS average is 70%, UO is at 64%. This is the latest available NCAA data, for 2002-2005 students, and is a mild overestimate of what you get relative to the standard federal method,  which gives the 80% 6-year graduation rate you see reported for regular UO students. So the actual gap between UO football players and regular students is larger than 25%.

    Expect the UO rate to fall significantly as the data for later years gets added in. Most of these guys are being admitted for their size and speed and awesome skills. Only minimal attention to academic ability, if that.
