    NCAA approves scholarship changes, tougher academic standards

    DI Board of Directors adopt changes to academic and student-athlete welfare - NCAA.org

    The Board approved an implementation plan – which includes all football bowl games – that mandates a certain level of academic performance in order to participate in postseason competition. The eligibility requirement will begin phasing in with the 2012-2013 academic year.


    The Board also adopted legislation giving student-athletes who receive full athletics scholarships the opportunity to receive additional athletics aid up to the full cost of attendance or $2,000, whichever is less.

    Re: NCAA approves scholarship changes, tougher academic standards

    Interesting. I believe I heard on SportsCenter earlier this week that last year's NCAA BBall champ, UCONN, would not have been eligible for the post-season under these new rules (I believe their APR was in the 890s).

    How will this affect automatic conference tourney champ bids to the NCAA tourney? Will the runner-up get the bid or will it go to an at-large team? What if both teams in the finals are ineligible?

    This just sounds like it is going to be a nightmare.

    Anyone know how ISU's APR looks?

    Hear that, Byron Hanspard?

    It used to be that you had to be academically eligible second semester to participate in a bowl game. Not sure why they changed that in the first place. I used to know a guy who missed the Peach Bowl due to academics.

    Football & basketball can and are improving, but the most recent stats released this week has Iowa State's athletes with the highest grad rate in the Big12.

    BOO YA!!!

    I'd be interested to see the impact this could have, for example, how many 6 win football teams were there last year that also had the necessary APR? Same for B-ball teams in the NCAA tourney. It would be nice to put in perspective these new rules in relation to where most D1 schools are operating right now.

    I can tell you that the only Big 12 school that is under 930 is Oklahoma State Men's Basketball with a 927.

    Re: NCAA approves scholarship changes, tougher academic standards

    Will be interesting to see with these new standards if there will be enough teams with 6 wins or more that meet the requirements to fill all the bowl slots? Might have to end up taking 5 win teams (ugh).

    Just a quick look through of BCS conf schools that are under 930 for 2009-2010:

    Football:
    NC State 929
    Colorado 929
    Michigan 928
    Wash St. 925
    Maryland 922
    Louisville 908

    MBB:
    Indiana 929
    Syracuse 928
    Providence 925
    G Tech 915
    USC 912
    LSU 905
    UCONN 893
    Arkansas 892


    None of ISU's athletic teams are below 930.

    Not only that, but with their low scores the past two years, it looks like there's a good chance that they are already ineligible for the 2013 tourney. According to this article, it doesn't look like it's possible for them to get scores high enough, this coming year, to bring their average up high enough to qualify.

    Re: NCAA approves scholarship changes, tougher academic standards

    I'm glad to see the NCAA stepping up and making academics a priority. That is, after all, why these kids are supposed to be at school. Sadly, this will just cause many coaches and institutions to cheat and "pass" students who have no business passing. Let the scandals begin!


    For "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State all the way.
    Let's go! To show them what the gang's all here for,
    Go! To show them how the Cyclones cheer.
    For "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State do it right!
    It's time to climb up on the vict'ry wagon,
    Fight! Iowa State, Fight! Fight!

    Still pay for play. Still wrong. Don't care how you cut it, can't convince me otherwise.

    Can you imagine the impact that would have on recruiting? If I'm a BB player and I already know that UConn isn't making the tourney in 2 years, I think I might go somewhere else. That, and for UConn recruits they see the Big East is crumbling...but I don't think realignment has near the effect of knowing you can't go to the big Dance.

    It definitely means he may have to $hell out more for his top recruits.
