    Football Team Excelling in the Classroom

    By Ohio State Press Release

    Forty-nine Ohio State football players recorded a grade point average of 3.00 or better during the just completed Winter Quarter, with 17 of those student-athletes achieving a 3.50 or better in the academic arena.

    The Winter Quarter showing raises the team's overall grade point average to 2.82 for the 114-member squad.

    Additionally, a record 44 members of the football team have qualified for the upcoming Scholar-Athlete Banquet, marking the third consecutive year that at least 40 players have been in attendance at the annual spring dinner, which recognizes those student-athletes with GPA's of 3.00 or better during the past academic year.

    Five Ohio State football players received their degree at Winter Quarter Commencement earlier this month: long snapper Kyle Andrews, wide receiver Brandon "Bam" Childress, defensive back Harlen Jacobs, fullback Branden Joe and linebacker Thomas Matthews. All five lettered this past year for the 8-4 Buckeyes.

    The Buckeyes had 22 players selected to the Big Ten's All-Academic team this past season, marking the third consecutive year that Ohio State has led the Big Ten in that category.

    1998 15
    1999 20
    2000 26
    2001 24

    2003 41
    2004 43
    2005 44

    You won't hear a peep about this from ESPN.

    I believe what we will hear about this from ESPiN is that this just proves MoC's allegations that the coaches are setting the players up with tutors to do their work for them.

    this just makes me scratch my head when i see something like this, and then you see the latest report from the NCAA saying we are one of the worst in academic performance and are in danger of losing schollies if it doesn't improve, i just don't get it

    That report was based on results from last year. The most current results will more than likely put us above any possible trouble.

    That's why I think the whole APR thing is a joke. IMO, it puts too much emphasis on graduation where I think more needs to be on performance. Yes, in a perferfect world all of our players would graduate. We have one of the best football programs in the country and the NFL has proven it. How many of the 14 NFL draftees from 2004 actually graduated? I'm not sure, but I don't think Krenzel even graduated.

    This is from ESPN.com (sorry about the source, via google) but it looks like Krenzel did get his degree.

    Krenzel, 23, was a two-year starter at Ohio State and led the Buckeyes to a national title two years ago. He graduated with a degree in molecular genetics, is very bright, and has a good grasp of what the Bears are trying to do offensively.

    I know HH did it for Matthews last week, but congrats are in order for the other guys who got their degrees as well. Way to go guys!

    And yes, I'd agree that if E$PN says anything about this, it'll be that the tutors are doing very well.

    Any chance the mods can actually merge this thread with the other like a good mod should do? :wink:
