BYU Football Graduation Rates Among Lowest in NCAA
The NCAA released a study last week of student-athlete graduation rates that puts BYU on the bottom when measuring the difference between the graduation rate of football players at the school and the graduation rate of male students at BYU. But while the rates are affected by the prevalence of LDS missionaries at BYU, missionaries still don't explain why BYU's rate is so low. And the rates could put BYU out of post-season and championship competition under the Knight Commission's recommendations released earlier this year.

LDS Olympian Drowns in Fishing Accident
Former Olympic runner and member of BYU's Athletic Hall of Fame Paul Cummings drowned Monday in a fishing accident on Strawberry Reservoir near Salt Lake City. Cummings was a versatile runner, a five-time All-American track star who competed in the 1984 Olympics and set records in the 15 kilometer and indoor 1,500 meter races. He was 48.

Orioles' Johnson Says Tragedy Didn't Affect Game, but Loses
The Baltimore Orioles best pitcher, Jason Johnson, claimed this week that he didn't think about the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon at all while pitching in the team's first game after the attacks. But that didn't keep the Orioles from losing for the 15th time in their last 16 games. But Johnson, an LDS Church member, did admit that he and his wife, Stacey, were shaken by the attacks.
