Who cares about football, right? It’s all about the classrooms….yeah right.
The scores are based on incoming classes from 2001-2002 through 2004-2005.
Okay, so, here’s how the SEC programs’ graduation rates came in for football only:
Mississippi State: 62
Ole Miss: 54
*South Carolina: 39
South Carolina officials said there was a clerical error submitted to the NCAA that was the cause of the low graduation rates. South Carolina’s percentage is said to increase 16 to 18 points.
The national average was 67, and only four teams are above the national average.
