The other day, Jana and I were at Pick 'N Save with the boys, eating muffins and reading the papers, when I came across a news item about UW athletic teams' grades.

Overall, I thought it looked pretty good, as the program recorded a cumulative 2.99 GPA for the spring term, the second-highest in school history. When I relayed the good news to Jana, she arched her eyebrow, as if to say "That's it?"

But that's pretty darn good. I think my final GPA ended up being around 3.2 in not the most challenging majors, and I didn't spend 30 hours a week playing sports. It would be interesting to see how athletes' GPAs compare to the student body in general.

Another interesting thing is that across the board, the chicks have better grades than the dudes. Not sure what to make of that, but hats off to the ladies for their academic acumen.
