D-Minus? Allright!! I passed!
Congratulations to the University of Southern California, for pulling off a miraculous Tommy Boy-esque job at passing the new "stricter" academic requirements set forth by the NCAA. Pete Carroll and his band of studious warrior-poets pulled off a thrilling 927 APR score, just squeaking over the 925 cutoff for sanctions and scholarship cuts. Per the article, this was done with some last-minute hustle to bring the score up, as the site still lists them below the cutoff. How many points is a ballroom dancing class worth again?
