Uconn's loss is NU's gain? by Marshall Warren Ackerman



The NCAA has released it annual academic progress rate (APR) and it is not good news for the University of Connecticut, but could be a wind fall for Nebraska. Both it's Football Team and it Men's Basketball team have been banned from post season play. The APR was started in 2003-2004 to help improve the academic success rate of student-athletes. APR measures the academic progress of Student-Athlete on a semester by semester basis. The threshold on academic success is 930 out of 1000. DI college basketball has historically had the worst rates for APR. In August 2011 NCAA college presidents met in Indianapolis to discuss reform of the APR because of poo­r academic performance by student-athletes. The NCAA Board of Directors voted to band D1 team from postseason play if they failed to meet the 930 requirement. The new policy begins this academic year, but institutions will have a 3 year period to align there programs with the new APR. If the new standard would have been implemented for the 2011-2012 season. 99 D1 programs would have been banned from postseason play Including Nebraska because it's APR was 896 for basketball. But with the release of the 2011-2012 APR, Nebraska's score for basketball was 945 well above the requirement, but still last for the B1G. In football the APR was 966 good for 5th in the B1G. That number is likely to go up with the hire of Tim Miles since Tim Miles APR at Colorado St. starting in 2006-2007 was as follows.


06-07 - 773

07-08 - 950

08-09 - 920

09-10 - 1000

10-11 - 940

Tim Miles has shown a commitment to winning on the court, as well as off the court. The future looks bright for NU student-athletes. As far as Uconn's post-season ban they earned it, This is good news for Nebraska as one of the major players in the Akoy Agau sweepstake could possibly have been eliminated. The future for Akoy Agau may have just taken a Nebraska U turn.
