Big 12's best are struggling in the classroom

The Big 12’s best in football are apparently struggling in the classroom. Platte Institute spokesman Berk Brown tells us that while the Universities of Nebraska and Oklahoma have outstanding football teams…recent research shows they do the worst job of all Big 12 Universities in getting their students to graduate in four years.
“So when you consider the amount of money that goes into educating these students and all the state aid that the University is receiving from taxpayers here, those numbers are just a little bit distressing.”
Brown tells us that a survey by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni shows that the University of Nebraska ranks dead-last in the conference by graduating only 25 percent of its students in four years.
