Maybe the new grad invented some kind of Quantum Leap style time machine, and was able to intervene on his own behalf to right this wrong before it provided a tragic hiccup to the football program's success.
I'm guessing the player in question doesn't even know he graduated (or didn't until he got his diploma and a zero balance tuition bill in the mail). Even odds says OkSU went back through old academic status reports, found some guy who was within a summer of graduating, administratively re-enrolled him, CLEP'ed him through the necessary credits, and viola, extra graduate.
Hell's bells, they sent him a graduation diploma in Mar. What is the problem? They just had to keep checking their books for twenty years.
Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, 3sus, Hallice, Deonte, Dustin, Abdel, Monte, Matt, and McKaT.
I think we need to compile a list of former players who didn't graduate but played their Junior or Senior year dating back to the 70s... that way we can help ISU get out of APR trouble in the future if needed.
Beginning fall 2007, the APR was based on four years of data for most institutions (i.e., 2003-04,
2004-05, 2005-06 and 2006-07). Every year thereafter, the most current year's data will be added and the oldest year of data will be removed, creating a four-year rolling rate.
Rate Conversion for Final APR–Semester Schools
Translating the scores from decimals to whole numbers aids in the understanding and
interpretability of scores. This translation does not alter the meaning of the scores; rather, it puts the scores in terms that are more understandable. In order to achieve final APR for semester schools, raw APR are multiplied by 1,000.
Example: Raw APR of .97 x 1,000 = 970 final APR
The APR is comprised of four years of APR data, resulting in a multiyear rate. Each year, the
most current year's data will be added and the oldest year of data will be removed, creating a four-year rolling rate. The APR is used to demonstrate academic performance of all Division I teams. In addition, it is used to determine what teams are subject to penalties and rewards within the APP structure. The APR also serves as a point of academic access to postseason competition.

Not sure how Okie lite can get this kind of ruling based on the above bylaw excerpt.
