2013 NCAA APR scores update, as compiled for you by Brett McMurphy

Brett McMurphy has looked at the latest four-year APR scores for you.

The NCAA has published its latest Academic Progress Rate findings, by which it aims to log how well each athletic program in the country is doing at book-learning. Here is APR as explained by the NCAA:

Every Division I sports team calculates its APR each academic year, based on the eligibility, graduation and retention of each scholarship student-athlete. Teams scoring below certain thresholds can face consequences, such as practice restrictions and restrictions on postseason competition. Rates are based on the past four years' performance.

Clear as a bell!

Sometimes programs get punished for having low APR scores. This year, as is often the case, HBCUs with lesser resources suffer the far majority of postseason bans and other penalties, including playoff bans for Savannah State and likely Alabama State and Mississippi Valley State in football. This is one of several reasons why many criticize APR as a flawed metric to begin with.

However, as for the scores produced by larger football schools, ESPN's Brett McMurphy has already gone to all the trouble of collating and collecting these things for you, breaking them down by BCS league and everything. You should already follow him on Twitter, because he does nice things like this for people all the time. Nice fella.

First, the overall FBS lists:

These schools are all in perilous territory, as the NCAA explains:

In order to compete in the 2013-14 postseason, teams must achieve a 900 multi-year APR or a 930 average over the most recent two years. The same standard was in place for the 2012-13 academic year. This standard will increase to a multi-year 930, which predicts to a Graduation Success Rate of approximately 50 percent, or a 940 two-year average APR for the 2014-15 postseason

Then, the BCS-conference lists:

And then the conference-specific lists:

Thanks again to Brett McMurphy for all he does.
