NCAA: UA athletes don't make grade

The academic progress of UA athletes ranks at the bottom of the Pacific 10 Conference, according to a preliminary report released yesterday by the NCAA, and as many as nine UA teams could receive sanctions if the findings were to take effect.

As part of data collected from the 2003-04 academic year for the National Collegiate Athletic Associations' Academic Progress Rate, five Wildcat squads - baseball, football, men's outdoor track, women's indoor track and women's outdoor track - would have been penalized by the NCAA, including a possible loss of scholarships.

Sometimes it's fun to imagine that characters in Shakespeare's plays are real people. That, after the play is over, they go home, plunk down on their couches and flip on the TV.
