Is it possible that Dooley has turned it around?



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.

SEC List (All schools above the “cutoff” line of 930)

Vanderbilt — 978 Florida — 972 Missouri — 972 Alabama — 970 Georgia — 970 South Carolina — 966 LSU — 964 Mississippi State — 959 Kentucky — 951 Texas A&M — 946 Auburn — 943 Arkansas — 936 Ole Miss — 933 Tennessee — 931

About Capers Bar

I am retired Army officer. I used to fly helicopters and airplanes while I was in the Army. Nowadays, I do other things that are not so cool and sexy. I decided to write about my journey or whatever you want to call it towards running a half-marathon this fall. I have been running since 1983, I have run the Duke City full and half marathons. I don't run that fast anymore, I did win a 10K when I was 21, those days are mercifully past me. The fastest mile I have turned is a 5:05 during one of those Army physical fitness test 2 mile runs. The point I am making is that I am old, slow, and experienced runner. I named the blog after my running buddy, Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler. He is my 3rd K-9 running buddy, the previous two dogs were black labs. I hope to write about some of my discussions that I have with Bandit in the future. I once owned, but since sold and a satirical and irreverent sports blog that was moderately successful. I was published in the left-wing national sports media by Sports Illustrated and ESPN. I am "stuck" in Alabama working for a military contractor. I am working so fricking hard to get back to Southeast New Mexico or West Texas. Fingers and toes crossed.
