Okay, the NCAA is serious about the APR

When the NCAA instituted its Academic Progress Rate (APR) to track how student-athletes were progressing academically, there was talk that schools who didn’t meet a specific score would lose scholarships. I said I would believe the NCAA was serious about the APR when an SEC school lost football scholarships.

That could happen today. Reports out of Mississippi claim that Ole Miss football could lose as many as three scholarships when the NCAA releases its new APR report. The problems, according to the report in the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, stem from the last season under former coach Ed Orgeron. Last season, the first under new coach Houston Nutt, the football program scored 939, 14 points above the minimum required score of 925.

Ole Miss will have until the 2010-11 season to cut the three football scholarships.
