Oh, I thought this was mainly just based on the student-athletes on the football team. If we were looking at schools as a whole, then I would go with a SEC school, but if we're looking at football programs, I would take Miami's.

Okay for those who truly care the bottom five grad rates for 2004 were:

Florida Atlantic - 20%
UNLV - 36%
San Jose St. - 36%
UTEP - 37%
Alabama - 39%

Top five:
Navy - 98%
Notre Dame - 96%
Wake Forest - 96%
Clemson - 94%
Vanderbilt - 93%

I never would have guessed Clemson would have been in the top five.

For the record Miami was tied for 45th with Wisconsin at 67%.

Nebraska is 15th with 85% graduation rate, not too bad.

ASU's Grad rate for Athletes is 57%, not bad for just athletes alone. Actually better than the overall student grad rate at ASU.

Most of this is subjective depending on what you want to judge 'em on.

Agree on the Bucks, but Michigan is rated every year among the top schools academically, it's Med School is one of the Top Five and Law School is also up there. Until the pros started raiding the colleges for early outs they had one of the top Grad rates among athletes.

I would probably rate Ole Miss as one of the worst, but my guess is that Florida and FSU would challenge.

I'm surprised that Georgia Tech was so low.

You'd be wrong regarding UF Eric. Florida is consistently ranked as one of the top public schools academically (#9 in the top 10 in US News & World Report rankings this year) and has one of the top public business schools & MBA programs in the U.S., too.

I was only referring to their student athletes not the school in general.

I stand (sit) corrected.
I guess their bad rep is undeserved.

I was talking more along the lines of undergrads in regards to Michigan.

Again, this stuff is subjective. Any public school...and I mean ANY public school...in an urban setting (Ohio State, Akron, Cincinnati, Michigan State, Michigan, Pitt) is going to show poor undergrad graduation/test score numbers due to the fact they all have programs with the city to bring high school kids in.
