Do people realize that atheletes don't have to meet the same requirement to get



into school? I see people saying stuff like he couldn't get into LSU, but he could another school. Well, hate to break it to you but for a student athlete to get into LSU all they need is an act score of 18 and a 2.0. This means anyone who gets cleared, could come here.

I hate to break it to you but when people say that, they mean certain schools accept certain credits. If you dont have the minimum required credits, then you cant get in.

Not all schools or conferences accept the same grades, scores, or credits. It varies and has to pass the clearinghouse. Also takes a 3.0, unless ACT is higher

Isn't that the reason behind Lawson's gray shirt offer? At least that was one story put out there. He didn't have proper credits.

a) everybody knows that

b) despite the lower entrance requirements, many athletes still have trouble meeting those qualifications.

I think that whether a credit is accepted is generally an NCAA issue, not a school-by-school issue.

Nearly every FBS school would probably admit the same players as long they pass the NCAA Clearinghouse. There are a few that keep a higher standard and some that might take less risks on character. But when people say, "Player X couldn't get into Miami but he could get into LSU," they are usually wrong.

It does come into play in two instances that I know of: (1) several non-BCS conferences allow partial qualifiers who can enroll and practice but not play until they meet certain academic criteria; and (2) for JUCO transfers, the SEC requires and additional science/math credit that other conferences do not.

This is what I mean people. This guy thinks they need a 3.0 or act higher.

And obviously all schools are not the same.

Almost all schools go by the minimum requirements LINK

There are exceptions, but it's pretty rare. Stanford obviously has higher requirements. UCLA bumped up their requirements slightly. Everyone else in the Pac-12 goes by the NCAA minimum, which is what almost every school in the country does.

I can only think of 2 cases where a UW recruit met the NCAA minimum and they were still denied admission because UW didn't think they would survive academically (that's very rare, but it still is technically up to the school's discretion).

It's varies by school for JC recruits though I believe. JC recruits have a notoriously tough time getting into UW because UW doesn't accept PE credits. ASU does though, so they flock to schools like ASU.

I'm wondering the same about USC and Arizona.

I do. He was a former LSU commit who failed to qualify under SEC guidelines and ended up going to Oklahoma. That right there is why I never could understand how DeLoss Dodds(Texas AD) could ever openly look down upon SEC academics.

Of course who actually thinks 85% of football players could make the grades?

No one

Everybody knows this. Do you realize some schools have higher admission standards than others? Do you realize that a triangle has three sides? Do you know that not every school accepts the same credits?

Not sure if it still exist, but there was a sliding scale for athletes about 5 years ago. Something like a 17 ACT with a 2.7 GPA or a 19 ACT with a 2.5 GPA or a 24 ACT with a 1.7 GPA. (Those arent the numbers, but it was something like that.) Then there are partial qualifiers which I don't think the SEC takes any more.

My question was always about Noel Divine. Couldn't get into Oklahoma, LSU or Florida State. But could get into West Virginia and was eligible for three years. !??!

Nope. Just Stanford and UCLA in the Pac-12. Only slightly higher for UCLA (most every recruit that can get into any other school can get into UCLA), but a lot higher for Stanford.
