NCAA's heroes, life's zeros

Derrick Jackson at the Boston Globe points out that Pitt is among the NCAA tournament teams that hides poor graduation rates for its basketball players--and African-American players in particular--behind federal privacy law.

UPDATE: It would be nice to see a story about Pitt basketball like this one about Pitt football.

UPDATE #2: Gregg Easterbrook has the same story about universities' hiding their graduation rates, at least when it suits their purposes.
