    Texas football has the highest G.P.A in team history

    Should we be happy for them?

    Not sure I'd be bragging about a 2.89, nor calling attention to the fact it is your highest ever.

    It would have been much higher if Colt McCoy had not been injured!

    There's lies, damned lies, and statistics.

    The answer depends on how you count. Do you count walk-ons? Do you distinguish between invited walk-ons and guys who just show up? Did they count the incoming freshmen? What about the guys who put their name in the transfer portal, but haven't left school yet? What about guys who just left the team altogether? What about guys who take a light load in the spring and load up in the summer? Is it real classes the way most of us remember them, or do correspondence courses (Johnny Manziel over at aTm says hello) count? Is it undergraduate only, or does graduate school (where, other than professional school -- law / medical / et. al. -- you almost literally have to put forth no effort, put your fingers in your ears, and hum, to make a C) count?

    There are 1,000 ways to calculate that number, and I promise they used the single most favorable intersection of assumptions and qualifications to arrive at a 2.89. They're actually advertising how abysmal previous performance must have been.

    But as dathbama said, if Colt hadn't been hurt, it would have been over 3.00.

    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    I don't know that that data is released, though in 2018 Alabama was ranked 14th in APR out of all NCAA FBS football teams (Texas was 52nd). Only Vanderbilt has consistently had a higher APR than Bama within the SEC.

    What does it say about me that I barely beat that and I didn’t play any sports at all?
