Jason, thanks for posting the NCAA eligibility requirements. That should help answer questions that fans have. So NCAA has lower GPA requirement than NMSU? I thought NMSU has 2.0 GPA requirement for all students and anyone with less than 2.0 GPA is places on academic probation. How does this work with student athletes? If they have 1.9 GPA they are eligible per NCAA standards but on academic probation per NMSU standards? Just curious.

I believe that they are on academic probation if they fall below 2.0 for two consecutive semesters
