Remember those muttered concerns from effete Pac-10 types wondering what taking on a school like, say, Texas Tech would do to their academic cred? The problem child, it seems, resides to the north, where Colorado is the lone major-conference football program facing scholarship losses for falling below acceptable APR standards:â†µ
Colorado said in a news release that its scholarship losses in football, which already have been absorbed, were due to factors including transfers, academic struggles, dismissals for team violations and the loss of players to the National Football League.
For the uninitiated, this is basically the NCAA equivalent of smoking in the boys' room. SBN's Ralphie Report has a helpful breakdown of what, exactly, any of this means, and how the sanctions are already affecting the Colorado program.
