Well, duh.

How can you not love a study which, in concluding that the success of a college football team (Oregon, in this case) correlates with a significant drop in male student’s grades there, got survey feedback from male students who said they tended to drink more and study less after a football victory?

    Whatcha wanna bet that one was tax dollar funded. I could commission a study that proves eating spinach causes pimples.

    That was even more the case for me after losses. My study habits were always better in the spring.

    I was at UGA during Herschel’s time. Didn’t do a whole lot of studying during those seasons, especially 1980. Lucky to graduate at all.

      Agreed. Fall of 1980 I remember for many reasons, one of them being the terrible grades I made. But I had a damn good time!

    If you remember UGA then you weren’t really there.

    I kept the HOPE scholarship throughout college, but my five fall semesters all had a GPA below 3.0 while my four spring semesters were all above 3.0. I never even realized it until after I graduated and I looked back at my transcript.

    And I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

    Maybe these kooks should chill out and go and attend a few football games. And here’s to the hope that the collective 2012 UGa male (and female for that matter) GPAs set new levels of futility.

    Reminds me of the study that discovered that after drinking the chances of unprotected sex increases. I gotta get me some of this “study” money!!
