Earlier today, the College Sport Research Institute at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill released the 2010 NCAA D-I Football Adjusted Graduation Gap (AGG) Report. The Fall 2010 NCAA D-I Football AGG Report includes analysis of the adjusted graduation gap between football players and full-time male students at both FBS and FCS conferences.
The report, in its entirety, is embedded below. Here are a few bullet points:
- The Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) was the only D1 football conference to have a positive score (+6). This means that the conference’s football players actually graduated at a rate 6% points higher than the full-time male student body at the conference’s member institutions.
- The PAC-10 fared the worst in the study, with a -30. Yes, that means that its football players graduate at a rate 30% points lower than the full-time male students at its member institutions.
- The SEC, a conference that many people would say is the most dominant football conference (at least over the past few years), was not at the PAC-10’s level, but still put up a score of -19.
