This is very tiresome. The rising problem of misconduct in the NFL and now the NCAA, heck it's in all the sports now!

Thirty-six Members of Nittany Lion Football Team Earn 3.0 GPA or Higher During Fall Semester

Twelve Earn Dean's List Recognition for 3.5 GPA or Better

Jan. 30, 2008

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa., January 30, 2008 - The Penn State football team produced another outstanding academic performance during the Fall 2007 semester, with 36 squad members earning at least a 3.0 grade point average.

Among the 36 Nittany Lions, 12 earned Dean's List recognition by posting a 3.5 GPA or higher this past semester. Senior tackle Gerald Cadogan (Portsmouth, Ohio) and freshman guard Stefen Wisniewski (Bridgeville) earned a perfect 4.00 during the semester, while six other full-time football student-athletes had a 3.7 GPA or higher.

The superlative academic performance brings the number of Nittany Lion football student-athletes to 33 who had a cumulative 3.0 GPA through the fall. Among the highest achievers are: Cadogan, who was selected a first team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American? for the 2007 season, sophomore punter Jeremy Boone (Mechanicsburg), sophomore quarterback Pat Devlin (Downingtown), junior cornerback Justin King (Pittsburgh), junior linebacker Sean Lee (Pittsburgh), junior wide receiver Jordan Norwood (State College) and junior safety Mark Rubin (Amherst, N.Y.).

Among the other Nittany Lions who earned Dean's List recognition during the Fall semester were: freshman linebacker Chris Colasanti (Leonard, Mich.), sophomore wideout Ryan Gmerek (Houtzdale), senior kicker Joe Hughes (Downingtown), junior linebacker Josh Hull (Millheim), freshman defensive lineman Kevion Latham (Greensboro, N.C.), senior guard Ross Muir (Noblesville, Ind.), junior Andrew Pitz (Bettendorf, Iowa) and junior quarterback Kevin Suhey (State College), in addition to Cadogan, Devlin, Rubin and Wisniewski.

In addition, quarterback Paul Cianciolo (Charleston, S.C.) and center Patrick Weber (Arnold), who had graduated prior to the 2007 season, earned GPAs of 3.5 or higher during the Fall semester.

The outstanding classroom performance is the latest success in a long line of academic achievement for members of Coach Joe Paterno's program, who consistently are near the top nationally in graduation success:

• Penn State's 76 percent Graduation Success Rate was No. 3 in the nation among teams ranked in the final 2007 USA Today Coaches Top 25. Boston College (93) and Texas Tech (79) were the only teams with a higher GSR, according to data released by the NCAA last fall.

• The Nittany Lions earned the highest Graduation Success Rate among the eight Big Ten teams that played in a 2007-08 bowl game. Penn State's 76 percent rate was easily above the Division I national GSR average of 67 percent and was No. 9 among all 64 bowl teams.

• African-American members of the Penn State football team also earned a GSR?of 76 percent, significantly higher than the national average of 57 percent, and 15 points higher than the next closest Big Ten school, according to the 2007 NCAA report.

• Cadogan was selected a 2007 first team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American?, giving Penn State at least one Academic All-American? in each of the past six years.

During Paterno's tenure, Penn State has had 36 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-Americans? (27 first team), 15 National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame Scholar-Athletes and 18 NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship winners. Penn State ranks fourth among all Division I-A institutions in Academic All-America? football honorees.

• The Nittany Lions had 19 Academic All-Big Ten football honorees last fall, improving their conference-leading total to 209 from 1993-2007.

Paterno enters his 43rd season as head coach with 18 returning starters (8 defense, 8 offense, 2 specialists). During the 2008 campaign, the Nittany Lions will face eight teams that played in bowl games this past year, including five at home: Oregon State (Sept. 6), Illinois (Sept. 27), Michigan (Oct. 18-Homecoming), Indiana (Nov. 15) and Michigan State (Nov. 22).

It's very rewarding to see that JoePa has his team doing well in the classroom.

Ain't that the truth! Paterno even if the team doesn't do well on the field, wants to make sure they do well in the classroom.
