Description

It's easy to upset MU athletic administrators. Just bring up the subject of their athletes' graduation rates. The sentiment within the athletic office seems to be that all questions are loaded, and every reporter wants only to dig up dirt. To the administrative staff this is a natural response to being frequently burned in the media, not a suggestion of paranoia. This facts remains,though: Little among the most recent NCAA figures -- those from June 1994 -- is complimentary to the program. In general, the figures show M.U. doing poorly in football and men's basketball, and not much better in women's basketball. Particularly embarassing are the graduation rates of MU's black athletes in those three sports.
