IU’s second semester GPA: Not so hot

  • 07/17/2008 12:21 am in

Thanks to the Herald-Times for doing the grunt work on this: through an open records request it looks like we can now confirm IU’s atrocious academic standing in the second semester with a figure. That figure? A 2.13 GPA. Whoopsies!

Armon Bassett told the H-T players didn’t go to class for two weeks during the turmoil and this contributed to the low number. I would buy this as an excuse until I remember my last semester at IU; one in which I didn’t go to class ever, drank four nights a week and managed a GPA much higher than 2.13. And I didn’t have any tutors.

The moral of this story is that everyone should major in journalism.

    Well put B_MD. I'm sure your perspective is much more reliable than mine on the subject. Props to you for playing ball while maintaining a family and your school work. I'll keep your comments in mind next I time I discuss the subject.

    Exactly! I am sick of all the excuses for these kids, they just did not give a DAMN! Period, that is painfully obvious now. Dakich knew it, Crean found out, and now here we are! ….. starting over, and I for one am thrilled about it!

    Don't know if it's any more reliable, just bringing a different perspective.

    I just take it a little personal and tend to relate with the athlete a little when I read people on some of these boards totally writing these players off with the “don't let the door hit you on the way out, good ridance” attitude. I don't condone skipping classes for two straight weeks or anything like that, but I think some people are so harsh toward college athletes when they don't always know the real situation.

    You did not do that, but your original post just seemed like a place where I could state my case. Good discussion fergard…Sites like InsidetheHall are why it's fun to be a sports and IU fan!
