Huskies fare well in new graduation reports

The NCAA is releasing new graduation success rates today based on the incoming classes of 1998-2001.
And UW fares well when compared to other Pac-10 football programs, graduating 65 percent of its players in the NCAA’s Graduation Success Rate and 56 percent when measured by the federal rate — the GSR doesn’t penalize schools for transfers who leave in good academic standing.
Here’s a story from the NCAA with more details.
And here are the numbers for football graduation rates for the Pac-10 based on the incoming classes of 1998-2001.
First, the GSR:
Stanford 93
Washington State 68
Washington 65
Oregon State 64
UCLA 62
ASU 60
USC 54
Oregon 53
Cal 53
Arizona 41
And here are the federal rates:
Stanford 89
WSU 65
Washington 56
UCLA 53
ASU 52
USC 51
Oregon 49
Cal 45
OSU 44
Arizona 38
As you can see, the federal rates are lower for every school as they simply count players who transfer as players who didn’t graduate as opposed to the GSR, which rewards schools if those players were in good academic standing when they left.
And as you can see from reading the NCAA story, the national GSR rate for football bowl subdivision schools is 67 percent, while the federal rate is 56. UW is right on par with both, though many other Pac-10 schools lag a bit.
The 98-2001 period encompasses the final year of the Jim Lambright regime and the first three years of the Rick Neuheisel era.
