Great job, men! Urban's focus on academics and Real Life Wednesdays, etc. have been a huge culture build for Ohio State football. I hope whoever takes over for him in 15 years continues that focus.
The graphic makes it look like Terry McLaurin specifically earned a 2.86 GPA.
Maybe he did. He's the mean.
Nice, well done. That's a little better than how I usually did and the only distractions I had were girls, beer, TV, and girls.
And beer and girls and more beer. Whew...flashback...
I survived Cooper, and I hate Tai Streets.
Expect better in the spring with no game road trips, etc. 3.0 is in sight.
Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
Definitely something to be proud of.
Well done, student-athletes.
I had to run away high, so I wouldn't come home low...
The one thing I wish we would copy of the conference down south would be the graduate patches. I think those are actually pretty cool.
My first thought of see 2.86 was yikes, I would have been drawn and quartered by my rents for that.
But after seeing how that compares, well done!!
However, I would be curious to know how we compare to other top football programs. I did find this article that ranks all schools based on APR and we come in at #71 overall and #41 for FBS schools (if I counted correctly).
I am surprised Auburn, Alabama, Clemson and Florida were above us this year, but given that it is about graduation rates, I wonder if there are other criteria. Do transfers out of programs feed into this statistic in any way, etc...

I'm proud of these young men. Really working hard with practice, conditioning, classes, and service/community activities. And maybe some fun, even! Good on Urban for emphasizing this complete, well rounded culture.
Oh look, no General Studies majors either.
A man got to have a code...
A 2.86 is a B- right? Not bad.

now get back to work... :)
16-2 is SWEET!
