College Football By Dalton

To play in football you have to have good grades. If you don't have good grades then you can't play. Study shows that the more successful a team is the more their grade drops.Three extra wins for the Ducks' football squad in any given year caused a drop in male GPAs that's about as steep as the one you'd expect if male students had scored 27 points lower on their SATs.

On average, men were earning GPAs of 2.94, compared to 3.12 for women. Girls grades don't tend to drop after winning games.
