But I'd say NG Projects better at his position in the pros than either of those two did at QB
How does Gerry being ineligible affect Nebraska's APR? Or is that even still a thing?
Ummm I knew guys that rarely attended classes who still pulled 4.0s. Now some profs actually post the entire lecture and their notes so that attendance is optional. So blaming Riley when he knows a guy isn't attending class is not reasonable. SECONDLY THERE IS A LINE WHERE A COACH HAS TO BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT HOW HE INQUIRES ABOUT AN ATHLETE'S GRADES. An inquiry from a coach may be construed as pressure on a prof to pass said athlete.
Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR)
Implemented in 2003 as part of an ambitious academic reform effort in Division I, the Academic Progress Rate (APR) holds institutions accountable for the academic progress of their student-athletes through a team-based metric that accounts for the eligibility and retention of each student-athlete for each academic term.
The APR emerged when Division I presidents and chancellors sought a more timely assessment of academic success at colleges and universities. At the time, the best measure was the graduation rate calculated under the federally mandated methodology that was based on a six-year window and did not take transfers into account.
In addition to developing the APR, the presidents also adopted a new graduation rate methodology that more accurately reflects student-athlete transfer patterns and other factors affecting graduation (the new rate is called the Graduation Success Rate).
The APR system includes rewards for superior academic performance and penalties for teams that do not achieve certain academic benchmarks. Data are collected annually, and results are announced in the spring.
The Division I Committee on Academics (CoA) oversees the Academic Progress Rate as part of its responsibilities with the Academic Performance Program. The CoA sets policies and recommends legislative changes to the Division I Board of Directors which has the final say on changes in Division I.
Ugggg, if NU goes 5-7 it might be harder to make a bowl game
He'll be lucky if he projects as anything in the league. All he does well is run in a straight line.
