We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Only five other football teams that competed in BCS conferences last fall made the list – Northwestern (Big Ten), Duke and Clemson (ACC), Rutgers (Big East) and Vanderbilt (SEC)
Either this website doesn't exist or is not currently available.
And all except Clemson and Rutgers had losing records:
Ohio State 6-7

Michigan football, not surprisingly, absent from the list.
We were too busy winning the Sugar Bowl.
For a program like Michigan.
Absolutely. And we didn't even have to cheat to do it.
Well, that might be a bit of a stretch.
is michigan still on probation?
They got hit with 3 years of probation in 2010.
Is Ohio State the only program in the past decade whose football and basketball coaches both were terminated and received NCAA show cause orders for cheating?
thats right devidee there football program is still on probabtion and it was the basketball team who finally got off there probabtion a few years ago. thanks for the help

Filling in coloring books isn't rocket science.
Check out my 2 deep of UM's base 4-3 under defense, let me know your thoughts. Last updated: 3/28/12
Apparently "General Studies" is though...
Miami Hurricanes, have established a new high of five APR Public Recognition Awards
As is "exploring"...
And it's kinda sad that Ohio State has 18 more players than Michigan and still lost.
Go Blue and Go Titans!
Why did they release the results only for these two schools? Odd.
Why will the full results not be available until next Wednesday? What is APR? From what I see, it's fun with numbers.
O$U is at best mediocre in grad rates - what the hell does APR measure?
Penn St. 87%
Ohio St. 67%
Michigan St. 62%
Miami looks more legitimate:
Football Graduation Rates: ACC
Boston College 93%
Wake Forest 81%
Virginia Tech 79%
North Carolina 75%
Florida St. 56%
North Carolina St. 56%
Georgia Tech 55%
It wouldn't be spring without The Bootleg's annual graduation rate analysis! Disturbingly, the Cal Bears continue to embarrass their otherwise well-regarded institution and their ever-enabling Old Blue alumni with an inability to graduate their student-athletes. As usual, we flip the lights on and expose the latest set of data from the NCAA. Let the college sports administrator cockroaches scurry!
Teams that fail to achieve an APR score of 925 - equivalent to a 50% graduation rate - may be penalized. A perfect score is 1000. The scores are calculated as follows:
Each student-athlete receiving athletically related financial aid earns one retention point for staying in school and one eligibility point for being academically eligible. A team’s total points are divided by the points possible and then multiplied by one thousand to equal the team’s Academic Progress Rate score. Example: A Division I Football Bowl Subdivision team awards the full complement of 85 grants-in-aid. If 80 student-athletes remain in school and academically eligible, three remain in school but are academically ineligible and two drop out academically ineligible, the team earns 163 of 170 possible points for that term. Divide 163 by 170 and multiply by 1,000 to determine that the team’s Academic Progress Rate for that term is 959.
The NCAA calculates the rate as a rolling, four-year figure that takes into account all the points student-athletes could earn for remaining in school and academically eligible during that period. Teams that do not earn an Academic Progress Rate above specific benchmarks face penalties ranging from scholarship reductions to more severe sanctions like restrictions on scholarships and practice time.
To be fair, the OP never said OSU graduated its players.
Obviously a huge win for a program like tOSU as well since you repeatedly quote the score of the last bowl game tOSU won.
In other words,
The output is simply a measure of whether kids are academically eligible & stay in school. Graduation plays no role in this metric.
As a management tool, it monitors the 'one & done' and is probably more relevant for basketball.
For football, it's a marketing ploy and is of little meaning.
Which is particularly sad considering the trophy was later taken away due to cheating. I mean, can't they find a game that wasn't vacated to overhype?
That's just like, your opinion, man.
Well said sir.
