UK’s grades for the fall are…less than stellar

UK just announced the fall grades for its athletic teams and, well, men’s basketball and football’s ain’t great. The men’s basketball team posted a 2.418 GPA for scholarship players and 2.547 for scholarship and non-scholarship players. That’s the lowest of the Calipari era and the lowest of all 20 UK sports teams. Meanwhile, the football team posted a 2.531 GPA for scholarship players and 2.655 GPA for scholarship and non-scholarship players, which is slightly below their mark for last spring, but above the mark for Fall 2015.

Women’s basketball, however, is getting it done, posting a 3.5 GPA. Women’s tennis had the highest GPA of any team at 3.653. Overall, UK’s teams combined for a 3.143 GPA, the ninth straight semester they have surpassed the 3.0 threshold.

    Were they real classes? Did they actually attend the classes?
    At Carolina, students are not confined to a class room…hee haw.

    discipline – isn’t that what Coach was making reference to? seems to be an issue on more than one front.

    Making the basketball team fly to New York for a meaningless game against Hofsta on the Sunday before Monday Tuesday finals probably didn’t help.

      Apples and oranges comparison. Regular students aren’t taking basket weaving and reading see Dick run books.

    The team obviously needs to buckle down in more ways than one….but they are taking classes and remain eligible.
