Huskies morning links: Emphasis on education another sign of UW’s culture change under Chris Petersen

After UW’s fall-term grades were released, there were some signs over the past few weeks that this was coming. Many Washington players seemed to take extra pride in their success in the classroom, posting messages on Twitter about making the “3.0 board” that’s posted in the Huskies’ football offices.

Clearly, the classroom is important to Chris Petersen. And in another sign of the significant culture shift in the program, UW has reported a 3.0 team grade-point average — equivalent of a “B” average — for the fall term. That is the best in program history, according to UW’s director of player personnel, Marshall Malchow (above).

Teams don’t typically share GPA figures unless they’re positive, so unfortunately we don’t have a way to compare how this 3.0 team GPA stacks up with, say, the team’s GPA from a year ago. Safe to say it wasn’t this good, though. For some perspective, the Stanford women’s swimming and diving team earned national recognition last summer for its team GPA of 3.27.
