Tennessee football scores 931 on the APR….One point away from a post season ban. I now believe that 10 wins are possible. Low grades equate to wins in the SEC. Majors and Fulmer understood this simple formula. Maybe Dooley gets it too!!
On second thought, what if the Kentucky loss was an indicator that the APR is on the rise.
one more thought, a post season ban might have saved Dooley’s job…
APR=Academic Progression Rate
It measures eligibility, retention and graduation of Division 1 student-athletes
As of last year (or sometime around then) APR is now being figured into post-season eligibility for teams (see UConn) as well as scholarship numbers and potential NCAA sanctions.
