A study of this year's bowl-bound schools reveals they are graduating white players at a significantly higher percentage than African-American players.
The average graduation success rate for African-American football players at the bowl-bound schools is 65 percent compared to 84 percent for whites, according to the annual report released Monday by The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the University of Central Florida.
Richard Lapchick, principal author of the study and director of TIDES, says that the disparity is largely due to the lack of quality education African-Americans are receiving growing up.
Lapchick says ''it makes it tough for them to catch up in college.''
He adds that the most disturbing fact is only 37 percent of bowl-bound schools graduate at least 66 percent of their African-American players.
