Boise State is basically a community college. For instance, I work with a number of late 20's and 30 year olds who have, at some point, taken classes at BSU. Many don't continue or they take a few years off or whatever. So I would guess that the reason they graduate so little is because of this. A ton of people here "take classes" at BSU.

J.R. Simplot died as the oldest billionaire on the Forbes 400, pretty much due to potatoes. If you like McDonald's fries, chances are they are because of his company. Don't knock the potato.

Aside from the baseline numbers, you can certainly question a methodology that gives more credence to campus context than raw performance, which puts Northern Illinois, with its 66% federal graduation rate for football, above Notre Dame, at 83% (Northern Illinois has a 83% GSR, while Notre Dame’s GSR is 97%).
That quote just about sums it up. Their methodology is designed to reward those football programs that graduate their African-American players at a higher rate than the general student body, which leads to some perverse outcomes; Northern Illinois, for instance, scores better than ND simply because the minority graduation rates for its general student population are so poor.

The ranking provided is useless because it's not based on an objective baseline metric.
