Not only did the team pull a cumulative 3.53 — the highest semester team GPA in program history — but Brandon Stephens, Tyler Page, Karl Taylor, Sabazz Dotson, Luke Evans, Garrett Madison, Alex Sickafoose, Matt Dorrity and Peyton Hudson managed a perfect 4.0.
Congratulations.

I don't care what courses they are taking. That GPA tells you there are a bunch of guys on this roster taking full advantage of their subsidized education. Good for them.

just to explain why this happen as a may 2020 graduate.

At the end of this semester, after grades were posted, you had the option to take a pass/fail in the classes you took. Pass/fail do not count towards you GPA, but will count towards degree plans (normally doesn't). This made it possible to very easily boost your GPA

Whatever grades you got, if they were above your current GPA you kept them, if they were bellow you changed them to a pass fail.

so say I had 2 B a B+ and 2 A's after getting my grades back
And regularly a 3.7 GPA. I could make my 2 B's and my B+ a pass/fail, have a 4.0 for the semester and improve my GPA decently.

Still impressive, but this was more about the system in place then anything else.
