NCAA Posts 2010-11 APR Scores; Buckeyes 3rd in FBS

By Jason Priestas on June 20, 2012 at 2:37p

The NCAA has released APR scores for the 2010-11 seasons and the Ohio State football team checks in with a 988, the third-highest score in all of FBS.

It's chest-thumping time -- here's a short list of schools that Ohio State topped with their football APR scores: Princeton (987), Harvard (985), Columbia (984), Vanderbilt (978), Stanford (977), and the U.S. Naval Academy (973).

Northwestern led all schools, FBS or otherwise, with a score of 995, while Duke and Boise State tied for second among FBS schools with scores of 989. Rounding out the Big Ten were Wisconsin (975), Penn State (971), Indiana (964), Illinois (953), Purdue (950), Iowa (949), Michigan, the Harvard of the West (943), Michigan State (943) and Minnesota (932).

Taking realignment into account, the Big Ten led all conferences with an average football score of 960.75. The ACC had an average score of 959.64, the SEC averaged 956.50, the Big 12 finished with 951.50 and the Pac-12 scored an average of 949.42 across its 12 football teams.

In other sports, women's volleyball, women's tennis, men's volleyball and men's tennis all posted perfect scores of 1,000. Softball scored a 995, women's basketball and men's ice hockey a 993 and the men's basketball team finished with a score of 962, marking the fifth-straight year the team has improved its score. Congratulations are clearly in order for the Student-Athlete Support Services Office.

Because of low APR scores, the men's basketball teams at UCONN and Toledo will face postseason ineligibility for the 2012-13 season.

still impressive but why would you put 3rd when Ohio St is 4th on the list?

3rd-highest score, but 4th on the list because Duke and Boise tied for second. Semantics, I guess.

definitely just semantics... like I said, still impressive...

I would like to brag to my Michigan "friend" about this. But APR only measures students who stay in school and not quality of class/grades. For all we know everybody is majoring in the Economic impact of bartering for tattoos and barely getting by with C's.

@interro: that's what that chart in the WHAC was all about.  ttun had a bunch of people in general studies or some other generic major, according to the chart we had a more impressive list of majors.
@everyone_else: this is why Gene Smith has a job.

Harvard of the West?  Haha... Michigan 943, 11th out of 12 B1G teams? 13 points above the minimum 930 APR score? How funny would that have been for HoW to miss the cut? Wow... admittedly I am extremely surprised by the score by TTUN.
