1. I guess Trumad's "80%" was pulled out of his a**

I'm willing to be one of the worst offenders is UCONN. But they stink so they probably didn't even check what their rate was.

8. You have a hard time with reading comprehension don't you.

I said the average is 70 percent for football. Tell me where I'm wrong.

Athletes in men's basketball graduated at a rate of 74 percent, a 6 percentage-point jump over the 2004-05 freshman class. Football Bowl Subdivision athletes improved their scores by 1 percentage point over the previous year, hitting 70 percent.

The records aren't confined to football and basketball.

Numbers compiled over four years, from the freshmen classes of 2002-03 through 2005-06, matched last year's record-high of 80 percent. The federal graduation rate also remained steady, matching the one-year record-high of 65 percent last year. That was also 2 percentage points above the overall student body, the same disparity the government reported last year.

2. I still wouldn't trade a used piece of string for an Ohio State grad.

Based on personal experiences, not all degrees are equal.

5. Hey I almost went to OSU

Believe it or not its a respectable school for the life sciences and some other stuff like poli sci. I have lots of family members that went there and they are smart and successful ...

6. I'm glad it has been satisfactory for your family.

My personal experiences with OSU's alumni have been less satisfactory, but I admittedly draw from a small sample. Of such, are prejudices born - we've all got them. No personal affront was intended.

7. Probably why they now stink...when Asshat Jimmy Johnson was there

the grauation rate was about 1%...and it was only that high because they included the managers.
