Not bad

Especially since we don't offer African-American Studies or whatever.


I believe Clemson calls its program Pan African Studies***

PAS is exclusively a minor..

Not top ten graduation rates in FBS. You don't seriously think all those SEC schools would be in there.

What is SCAR's problem.

SCU's graduation rate is inaccurate...


Posted: Jan 8, 2014 5:52 PM
 

or does that include the degrees they give to players who don't attend class

This just highlights how stringent our academic standards


Posted: Jan 8, 2014 6:57 PM
 

are, 35% of kids can't even graduate.

Same as every other conference

since the entrant requirements are the same.

except you know the whole fact that some players are admitted into places that Clemson doesnt allow in. Clemson and Scar DO NOT have the same entrance requirements. That is a fact kid.

The big one a few years ago was the WR who ended up going to UNC.

Please cite me a source for your "facts."


Posted: Jan 8, 2014 11:33 PM
 

Us, SCar, FSU, etc. all of the same entrance requirements. Please prove me wrong.


Re: Please cite me a source for your "facts."


Posted: Jan 9, 2014 8:46 AM
 

First off there is no "us" chicken boy you are fooling no one.

We have the Academic Review Board that reviews all incoming athletes and have told coaches in the past they could not offer a scholarship to certain athletes due to their academic history. The big time WR from UNC was the most public one.

If you were a Clemson fan you would remember that, but we both know you are not.

I'm just looking for a source. Something tangible.


Posted: Jan 9, 2014 11:47 AM
 

Should be pretty easy if it's common knowledge that Clemson is tougher for athletes to get into.


Your assumption is incorrect, coot


Posted: Jan 8, 2014 7:54 PM
 

Generally, higher graduation rates = better schools. For example, here are the 4-year colleges with the highest graduation rates:

1. Harvard
2. Yale
3. Notre Dame
4. Princeton
5. Brown

And the lowest (or, in your mind, those with the "most stringest academic standards"):

1. University of Phoenix
2. Western Governors University
3. University of Houston - DT
4. Int'l Academy of Design & Tech - Chicago
5. Texas Southern University

"stringest" should be "stringent"***

UCF is a commuter school--largest Univ. in Florida I think


Posted: Jan 8, 2014 7:07 PM
 

Honestly, that makes it more impressive that the players are sticking around campus & taking care of business. I guess it helps not having a ton of distractions around at night.

Georgia State in Atlanta would be a good comparison as far as the commuter school & enrollment as it's the biggest in Georgia the last I heard when I lived nearby.

At UCF you're more likely to graduate as a football player than a student.


Re: The AP Top 10 reordered by graduation rate


Posted: Jan 8, 2014 7:44 PM
 

Here's the top 10 by student graduation rate:

1.) Clemson - 82%
2.) Michigan State - 79%
3.) Florida State - 75%
4.) South Carolina - 72%
5.) Missouri - 71%
6.) Auburn - 68%
7.) Alabama - 67%
8.) Oregon - 67%
9.) Oklahoma - 66%
10.) UCF - 65%

I believe that's a different stat, using all students, not


Posted: Jan 8, 2014 7:50 PM
 

just student athletes. UCF makes sense as they are commuter school

Posted: Jan 8, 2014 8:08 PM
 

Is that why almost 20% of your football team scored as illiterate on the SAT? Because of your "stringest" academic standards?


Clowney still can't spell his own name.

Shut up coot.


I don't think USuC's is that high

Posted: Jan 8, 2014 10:13 PM
 

Given they signed 23 players in 2010 but only have 5 seniors now.


How is North Carolina not on that list?***

UCF shouldn't even count since it's a commuter college...it's basically a glorified Community College.


That can't be right. I swear I read Stanford had like 97%


Posted: Jan 9, 2014 1:15 PM
 

graduation rate earlier this fall.
