Taking a look at BC's APR rating

The NCAA released its latest APR report Tuesday. As a refresher, the APR stands for Academic Progress Report. Myles Brand created the measurement to track the academic success of student athletes. Programs that fail to meet national standards are subject to scholarship penalties and other restrictions.

You can read BC's report here.


What does it mean for BC? For the most part the news in excellent. The danger score is 925 and all of the BC teams are well above that number. The only team flirting with 925 is men's basketball and they are above the national average for hoops. The APR is calculated using a four year window, so our basketball number should creep up once the players who were kicked out mid semester cycle out of our average.


Hats of to the Athletic Department for keeping our athletes in school and on the path to graduation.

What's up with Golf? Are they dumb country club golfers? Leaving early to jump to the PGA?

And hats off to the school in general for prioritizing academics in the recruitment of athletes as well.

Frankly, I don't care how good the athletic department is, if we took some of the guys Fresno St or Washington St will take, there would be no helping them.

I guess you could say that BC could get hoodlums and thugs and win tomorrow, but BC won't do it that way?

Hello Sebastian:

I know this is a flawed system - but it’s one indicator for sure. Congrats to Notre Dame in Football AND basketball.

I'm really looking forward to ND's visit to Chestnut Hill this year - it should be a great game.
