According to a report by the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sports, Michigan would not be eligible for a Bowl Game or the NCAA Basketball Tournament ... due to graduation rates (If new rule change was in effect for this year).
- "If the new 930 APR standard had been in place for in March, 12 schools would not have qualified for the men’s NCAA basketball tournament and seven teams, including Michigan and Louisville, would not have been eligible to play in this season’s bowls."
- "Michigan has the second-lowest APR score (928) out of all 70 bowl teams. Louisville is the only team below the multi-year penalty line with a score of 908."
*update* The new rule is 930, and Michigan is at 928, but this won't be in effect until next year (to my understanding). The recent string of transfers made these articles jump out at me. If we are currently below standards, what is our outlook for next year? Again, I'm looking for insight to ease my mind. I'm not trying to set off any alarms. Th
I live in the South Bend area and of course the Notre Dame slappies are attacking me with this propaganda. "Michigan Thugs" "Notre Dame has standards" etc etc etc ... of course ND & Northwestern were amongst the best in the nation in GSR.
I'm not very familiar with APR & GSR so maybe someone else can shed some light. Either way, the source/link is below.
*** I searched the site for APR & GSR for anything recent and didn't turn anything up, so if this is old news I apologize and please delete.
