    The The Orlando Sentinel did a rating on how difficult it is for football players to obtain admittance into certain universities. Schools were measured only against schools in their own conferences, however, so a Big Ten school shouldn't be compared with a Pac-10 school.

    The SEC worked out like this

    Easy: Arkansas, Mississippi State

    So-so: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee

    Hard: Vanderbilt
    LSU is a so so which is what is to be expected. Vandy is the hard to get into which I think would be right. They bring the SEC's overall GPA up. But look at Moo State and Arkansas, easy to get into. Guess they will admit anyone.

    The funny thing is the Sun Belt Conference

    Easy: Middle Tennessee, Utah State

    So-so: Arkansas State, Idaho, New Mexico State, North Texas

    Hard: La.-Lafayette, La.-Monroe
    Man that conference must be really bad when ULL and ULM are hard to get into.

    That fits the graduation rate about right. Vanderbilt graduates almost 100% of its football players. Arkansas graduates 5%. Most SEC schools range between 20% and 60% graduation rates with LSU on the higher end of it.
