According to THIS article on ESPN.com, Eastern Kentucky had a ZERO percent graduation rate for its basketball team that recently exited from the NCAA tournament. Forty-one Division One schools didn’t graduate any black players, but EKU appears to have the distinction of being an equal opportunity non-dispenser of sheepskins for all players
Our crime-lab SEC partner to the east, The U. of T. (give me a ‘U’, give me a, uh, wait a minute, I think I got it*), had a sparkling rate of 10%. Maryland, UNLV and The University of Memphis all had, at least somewhat, better graduation percentage.
Vandy has traditionally had a good rate, but they weren’t listed in this article. For what it’s worth, Holy Cross goes to the head of the graduating class, with 86%.
Kinda makes you think that the athletes in many schools should be getting paid for their work, considering that actual education doesn’t appear to be a priority.
*My friend Big Orange Michael is certainly a literate exception to this obvious slur of U.T.
