    According to the NCAA, LSU has the second highest graduation rate(57%) for football players in the SEC. That is second to Vanderbilt(100%). UT and Arkansas are at the bottom with 8 and 5% respectively. Go figure.

    I saw that too . .

    I can't remember where I saw the link though.

    Auburn is at a horrendus 24% for football . .dating back to 1996. Thank you Terry Bowden.

    I read it in The Tennessean(Nashville's paper). The online site does not list the schools. LSU has a graduation rate of 56% for all athletes. Which is about average for the SEC. You should log onto tennessean.com and read Coach Phil's rationalization for UT lousy rate.
