Actually, there is no incentive whatsoever to pass anything second semester. Tell me exactly why Kevin Durant should be going to class?
On a side note, the way those statistics are compiled are bad. If a kid, for instance, transfers from Ohio State to Tennessee, he counts against OSU's number as a non-graduate. If he graduates from UT, he doesn't count for anyone. There are similar problems with the way JUCO's are counted and the aforementioned situation with kids who go pro early.
That doesn't excuse a single digit number, but if they are going to use graduation rates, they need to find a better way to calculate them.
