Iowa Hawkeyes Football Graduation Success Rate

I was reading about the graduation rate for college football players and the NCAA site has a big database of Division I Graduation Success Rate (GSR) Data but it seems a little outdated. Anyway, it’s spans over 1998-2001 and the graduation rate for Iowa Hawkeyes football players was 75%. Not bad compared to other colleges (*cough* *cough* Iowa State University had only 55%).

The top college with the most football players graduation was Notre Dame with 94% while Arizona came in last at a weak 41%.

The data for the University of Iowa is pretty interesting. From the PDF I read, here are the GSR details for the University of Iowa:

Baseball: 95%
Basketball: 46%
CC/Track: 86%
Football: 75%
Golf: 56%
Gymnastics: 83%
Swimming: 85%
Tennis: 100%
Wrestling: 70%

See all of the data yourself at the NCAA site. See how all the college football programs match up at
