    Post ISU Releases NCAA Academic Scores

    AMES, Iowa – The NCAA released 2006 Academic Progress Rate (APR) figures and seventeen of Iowa State’s 18 intercollegiate sports surpassed the mandated 925 “cutoff” score to avoid scholarship reductions and other recruiting and practice time penalties.

    The ISU men’s basketball team fell below the cutoff mark with a multi-year score of 852. However, the NCAA has granted ISU a conditional waiver from further penalties given this year’s score was impacted by the loss of six student-athletes after a coaching change in 2006. The men’s basketball program had already been penalized with a loss of two scholarships in Coach Greg McDermott’s first year due to the team’s academic performance prior to his arrival. To avoid future penalties for the men’s basketball program, Iowa State must record yearly APR scores above 925 and maintain progress towards a four-year composite of 925.

    “Although we are concerned that our men’s basketball APR score is below the cutoff mark, it is important to note that we received perfect APR scores (1,000) in men’s basketball in the semester before and after our coaching change,” Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said. “We are confident that with Coach McDermott’s emphasis on and track record in the academic performance of his student-athletes that improvement will be made. The large exodus from our team (2006 spring) has, however, created challenges because our ability to absorb further departures from our men’s basketball team could result in not meeting the requirements of the conditional waiver.”

    The NCAA’s academic reform package of 2004, which included two new metrics (the APR and the Graduation Success Rate – GSR), reports a historical snapshot of a school’s academic performance by its student-athletes. Data, however, is compiled over a six-year period in the computing the GSR, and over a four-year period in computing the APR and isn’t always an accurate reflection of today’s efforts by student-athletes.

    “The majority – 94-plus percent – of our teams at Iowa State met the NCAA standards, but the work is never complete,” Pollard said. “Emphasizing good classroom performance is a 12-months-a-year endeavor for our coaches and staff.”

    The highest multi-year APR scores at ISU were earned by the volleyball (994), women’s swimming (993), women’s golf (989) and gymnastics (988) teams. Football (930), wrestling (978) and women’s basketball (973) were above the cutoff mark.

    Earlier this year, ISU Athletics Department officials released information showing that student-athletes registered a 70 percent graduation rate compared to a 68 percent mark for undergraduates in 2005. It was the first time in school history that 7-in-10 athletes received degrees from Iowa State per the federal government’s rate.

    How does the mass exodus of the current men's bball team effect this?

    I don't know Brian, but this quote doesn't make me optimistic.

    Sounds like we need to start looking for freshman who will stick around for 4 years. Seems to be a thing of the past anymore.

    When you recruit a team in a few weeks you have to take some risks. Unfortunately the guys from previous years put us in a bad spot.

    This means we don't need to be kicking Mike off the team and have him leave us ineligible.

    It's safe to say Ross is leaving eligible so we are fine there.

    I've never heard of any grade problems with McIntosh, so let's hope he leaves eligible.

    Dodie is a wait and see. He's a good kid so I have faith.

    Not exactly...for example, Durant leaving Texas will not hurt them (as long as he leaves in "good academic standing"). The bottom line is that we need to have kids that are in good academic standing and progressing towards degrees. If they leave early to pursue other interests (like both Durant and Marsden), we are only hurt if they are not in good academic standing.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    When guys leave early you have to hope they care enough to leave eligible. It's safe to say guys like Curtis and Will didn't...
