Democrats and Racism

This is disgusting.   I like Herman Cain and it is not because of the color of his skin.    I find MSNBC to be a wing of the Democratic Party.   That is why I agree with Mark Levin when he calls the lowest rated cable station, MSLSD.


Auntie Fran - One Additional Thought

As perfect a human being as I've ever met. Her biggest fault was that she loved and cared too much. I will miss her but feel so fortunate that she was a part of my life. She will always be part of who I am.

BC Graduation Success Rate Second in Nation

Oct. 27, 2011

Boston College, along with Duke University, tied for second in the nation for overall
Graduation Success Rate (GSR) in all sports among FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) schools, according to data released by the NCAA this week. The 97 percent that both schools registered was second only to Notre Dame's 99 percent.

Twenty-one BC sports teams received a perfect GSR score of 100, the most teams with a perfect score of any FBS athletics program in the country. This marked the third consecutive year the Eagles recorded the most perfect scores among their FBS counterparts. In addition, the football team's score of 93 was one of only six FBS programs in the country to receive a score of 90 or better.

"We are very proud that our program is among the top three in the nation in terms of graduating our student-athletes," Director of Athletics Gene DeFilippo said. "Congratulations to our student-athletes for a job well done."

The 21 Boston College teams that recorded a perfect GSR score of 100 included men's baseball, fencing, golf, skiing, sailing, swimming and tennis along with women's basketball, cross country/track, rowing, fencing, field hockey, golf, ice hockey, sailing, skiing, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis and volleyball.
The five FBS institutions that received scores of 90 or better were Notre Dame (97), Duke (93), Northwestern (94), Rice (93), BC (93) and Navy (91).
