Looks like the NCAA will shortly release the multi-year APR for each school, as they already have a web page set up for doing that.

In the meantime, it's nice just to know USF isn't one of the schools being penalized. Some other Big East schools weren't so fortunate.

What is the APR?

The Academic Progress Rate is an NCAA measure to track the academic achievement of Division I teams during each academic term. Each student-athlete earns one point for staying in school and one point for being academically eligible. A team’s total points are divided by points possible and multiplied by 1,000 to equal the team’s APR score. Teams that fall below the minimum APR score of 925 face possible sanctions ranging from scholarship reductions to more severe penalties.

Oh, I see they now have our 2010 APR up.

The 930 for football is over a 4 year average. We were 956 for the most current period 2008-2009 APR.

I don't know whether that eliminates them, but it certainly isn't good timing.

Football leads big gains for USF in APR scores

USF has had its share of problems with the NCAA's Academic Progress Rate scores in years past, but new results released Wednesday show significant progress for the Bulls, especially in football, baseball and men's basketball.

USF's four-year football score, graded out of 1000,  jumped from 909 to 930, matching Illinois for the largest improvement by any BCS football program. The Bulls are now above the NCAA's threshold score of 925, eliminating any possible penalty, and USF's annual football APR went up for the third year in a row, from 879 to 937 to 947 to this year's 956.

"The 956 is telling me that we're a healthy, sustainable program now, because we're looking at another great year," said Amy Perkins, USF's associate athletic director for student-athlete development. "Most definitely, our trends are up."

USF's football APR is no longer the lowest in the Big East -- Louisville has that with a 926 -- and isn't the lowest among the state's four major programs, with Florida State below the Bulls at 927.

The Bulls saw more dramatic improvement in baseball, where this year's APR score of 991 -- one mark short of a perfect 1000 -- increased USF's four-year score to 913. Men's basketball also registered a high score with a 977, raising its four-year score an impressive 37 points from 878 to 915. Perkins said she is confident that both the baseball and men's basketball scores will be above the NCAA cut line of 925 by next year.

In all, 13 of USF's 17 athletic teams saw their APR score trend up from last year, with transfers accounting for the dropoff in the other four sports more so than any academic or eligibility issues.

The Bulls' highest overall scores came on the women's side, with softball (994), golf (993) and tennis (991) leading the way. In annual scores for the 2008-09 school year, five Bulls teams scored a perfect score of 1000: men's cross-country and tennis and women's softball, tennis and volleyball.

The newest scores reflect the four-year window that ended last spring, so USF's progress doesn't include recent initiatives like one that in January outfitted every USF student-athlete with an Apple MacBook Pro laptop computer. Perkins said once USF has a full year with the laptops in use, there should be even more improvement to the APR scores and graduation rates.

"I anticipate this time two years from now, we're really going to see a jump because of the technology," she said. "All the trends are going up for next year. Those look really good."

For more on USF and other schools' APR scores, visit the NCAA's official site.

    With the climate going on in NCAA athletics, you’re either moving forward at a hard pace or you’re not. I think what intrigued me the most is they’re very determined to become a big player nationally.
