The "U" stressing "A"s

Miami among top football programs academically in the nation...

Since 1991, UM’s average AFCA (American Football Coaches Association) rate is 71.52 percent, and far exceeds the national average of 58 percent.

In the latest release of the NCAA Academic Progress Report, the Miami Hurricanes scored a 969, which put them as the eight-highest out of 119 bowl sub-division football programs. Miami follows two other ACC schools (Duke # 3, Boston College # 7) in the top 10.

On this year’s Hurricane team, there are 23 seniors, 13 have already earned degrees and the other 10 are on course to graduate either in December 2008 or May 2009. Last season, Miami had 12 early graduates (the second highest total nationally behind Boston College).
