Unsportsmanlike Conduct

College Football's Real-Life Top 25

25. TOLEDO (10-1)
Coach Gary Pinkel said he remained at this relatively small football school because he wanted his kids to graduate from the same high school. But with his youngest son in the middle of his senior year, it's apparent that Pinkel wanted to make some money as well. He left his bowl-bound team to sign a five-year contract with the bigger University of Missouri—which offered him a reported $900,000 per annum, including salary and extras—taking seven Rocket assistant coaches with him. He made about $200,000 at Toledo. (Graduation rate, all students: 37%; football players: 55%; black players: 44%)

This poll combines the AP rankings with NCAA findings on institutional ethical conduct, graduation rates, and exploitation of African American athletes. Graduation rates and enrollment data cover entering freshman from '90-'91 through '93-'94, all given six years to get degrees.
