Graduation Success Rate for Student-Athletes Sets All-Time Mark

Thousands of LSU fans gather and party at tailgates outside of LSU's Tiger Stadium and across campus before the Tigers first home game of the season against Chattanooga on Saturday

Marshall student-athletes who enrolled between 2007 and 2010 boasted a Graduation Success Rate (GSR) of 85 percent, one point higher than the Herd's numbers last October, according to figures released Wednesday by the NCAA.

This year's reflect the number of scholarship student-athletes who entered Rutgers since 2010-11 and graduated within six academic years.

Implemented 13 years ago by the NCAA, field hockey and women's tennis continued their streak of 13-straight seasons with a 100 percent GSR.

GW's baseball, women's basketball, women's cross country and track, gymnastics, men's rowing, women's soccer, men's and women's squash, women's swimming and diving, men's and women's tennis and women's water polo programs all achieved a flawless 100 Graduation Success Rate over a four year period.

Apple software update fixes iOS 11.1 autocorrect bug
Last Friday, a few days after iOS 11 .1 was released to millions of iPhone users, a very odd bug started popping up. Finally, you will need a debit or credit card loaded in the Wallet app for use with Apple Pay .

"We're proud of the success our student-athletes have made in the classroom", Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt said. In the fall of 2013, as UConn was on its way to winning its most recent championship, the program's graduation rate hit a low of 8 percent.

Ten Temple teams earned 90 or higher GSR scores with three - women's lacrosse, men's and women's tennis, posting a flawless 100 score. Five public universities - South Carolina, Missouri, LSU, Mississippi State and Alabama - graduated at least 90 percent of their athletes.

The graduation success rate was developed as an improved measurement tool for tracking student-athletes' academic progress leading toward graduation. Baseball, men's track and field, soccer and softball, meanwhile, all held steady or improved their GSR scores.

Navy ranked 13th nationally among schools that have teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision with a graduation rate of 91 percent. Men's basketball federal rate was a 42-point improvement over the federal rate of 33 while women's basketball improved on the federal rate of 47 by 43 points.

Sheep trained to recognize Jake Gyllenhaal, for science
But now, a relatively small study from University of Cambridge scientists shows that sheep might be joining that club. The sheep were having two options in each step as a photo of celebrity face or another is of something else.

The football program posted an 85 percent graduation success rate, its highest since the data was first released in 1998.

The GSR takes into account the many different academic paths followed by today's college students. Athletes who transfer in good standing do not count against the school's GSR. The group included men's basketball, men's golf, men's skiing, men's tennis, women's basketball, gymnastics, women's tennis and volleyball.

Football (82 pct. vs. national average of 75 pct.) and men's basketball (82 pct. vs. national average of 78 pct.) are among the other Georgia Tech programs that exceed the national average for GSR in their respective sports.
