Grade inflation? Median mark at Ohio State is B+
While a C has been long expected to be representative of average work, it turns out that Ohio State students aren't facing that mark as often as a B+, leading to concerns about grade inflation from some students.

How many ghetto diversity players graduate with a communications degree and can not read nor write at a junior high school level? If the answer is more than one then you have diploma devaluation for the rest of the graduates. Because if they graduate one sub standard, then potential employers have every reason to doubt all graduates' abilities. So, the degree cost $80K or so, but is worth squat.

Though I agree there is probably grade inflation. I must say your blame is misdirected, it is the faculty who should be on the radar screen not the athletes. Your selection of certain words to describe who is at fault show a "provincial", narrow perspective.
I am a person of color who graduated from Ohio State in 1972. I am surprised that you cannot articulate yourself in a way to bring attention to this subject in a scholarly way. Begin the conversation not with blame but with critical questions. How has the change from quarters to semesters impact how grades are computed? Should the Student Senate and the Lantern start a series to examine the reason for grade inflation?
Hopefully, you will expand your critical thinking and insights to come up and develop a clearer rationale for grade inflation.

I wouldn't expect you, PoC to see my larger point. Recall micro and macro ( pronounced my crow and mac row) where a diversity household moves in and some folks see the problem as stolen bikes and garden hoses while other observers see lost home values.

Not much difference from Columbus City Schools. Producing more dumb twits.

I'm going to stand up for THE Ohio State University in this instance. If you went to school there in the 1980's, it was considered a good school but not really elite.
Ohio State has really upped its game in terms of the kind of students it attracts. Spend some time in the libraries and you will see a far more studious student than what was there back in the day.
OSU is the 16-th ranked public institution in America and considered one of the Top 50 worldwide.
Miami was considered "public ivy" back in the old days. Today, Ohio's elite public university students are choosing THE Ohio State University.
Bottom line, with a better type of student that B+ average is probably justified.
