    Our APR from last season was 936, the 4th consecutive year with an increase, so I am not too worried for the future.

    That's kind of what I was thinking. I'm trying to figure out when this goes into effect. The ESPN article didn't have us listed as get your grades up or else so that's good.

    edit- although I just looked again and that list is for this years tourney only

    ESPN only looked at last year's tournament teams. It also said they haven't decided when it would take affect. Probably a 3 or 5 year scale.

    actually, that's one thing you can't blame on G-Mac. He made good strides in APR. When he took over, Morgan had us at 852 and under a scholarship reduction penalty. G-Mac did a good job with APR, on the whole.
