    UCONN Basketball banned for postseason play 2012-2013 season

    UCONN basketball seems to be the only major program whose Academic APR numbers were so low that they will be banned from postseason play this next year. Nice to see the NCAA have some teeth

    On a side note, Texas did extremely well of course

    "I believe very strongly that this is a game-changer," NCAA Committee on Academic Performance chairman Walter Harrison said on a conference call Wednesday afternoon. "It sends a message to our teams and to our critics that we mean business. Teams need to take care of (academic) things first things first, or they won't be able to play in the postseason. Those teams not eligible for the postseason need to think hard about who they recruit and how they support their student-athletes.
    The only game-changing aspect of this policy is that it will force more and more schools into establishing slack-ass curriculum for basketball players (cough, Antoine Wright/poultry science, cough). If I'm a coach on the hot seat, I will take the academic risk who can play and worry about academics later. If his option is taking less talented players across the board, he's probably out of a job in 4 years anyway. There's too much money to be made to worry about the academic well being of a bunch of kids that don't give a $#@! about the classes in the first place. Get them in somehow and make it impossible to pass.

    IMO, now that Connecticut has been popped, a lot of schools will wise up and make sure they aren't anywhere close to the 930 cutoff. Then the average scores will rise and the NCAA will point to that improvement as proof that the policy is helping the student athlete. You fix problems by focusing on root causes, not by focusing on the symptoms. The root cause is that schools are accepting way too many kids that have no business in college and no real desire to attend class.

    True; one of many reasons that college basketball and the NBA would be better off if the latter had a true minor league system...

    Yeah this has been a problem for many FCS football teams, many schools who can't afford all the "tutors" and "academic centers" that help players stay eligible which keep APR numbers up. Eastern Washington University, which won the FCS championship two years ago, was banned from post-season play recently iirc.

    I believe under the new calculations, as long as a player is in good academic standing when he leaves the school, the school doesn't take a hit. Where teams like Kentucky could get tripped up would be with kids dropping out after the Final Four to prep for the draft and not finishing out the semester.
