With college students everywhere sweating their fall semester grades, it seems an appropriate time to dole out some early grades to the New Orleans Pelicans, many of whom are of college age themselves.

It has been an up-and-down start for the newly-formed Pelicans, who are just getting one of their key cogs back from injury. Offseason optimism has turned into doubt and uncertainty, and questions concerning the job security of coach Monty Williams have already arisen.

Expectations and responsibility have a huge bearing on a team's perception, and that same idea carries over to player grades. Like honor students in high school, starters are held to higher standards than their bench-dwelling teammates, and their grades will reflect that scrutiny.

Keep that in mind, and let's comb through the 10 leaders in minutes on the Pelicans roster with a critical eye.
