8 Indiana programs post perfect APR scores

Eight Indiana athletic programs have earned perfect 1,000 Academic Progress Rate scores for the 2014-15 academic year, the school announced Thursday.

IU women’s basketball, men’s and women’s golf, women’s rowing, women’s swimming and diving, women’s tennis, volleyball and water polo each posted perfect scores in the APR, which measures a program’s ability to retain or graduate athletes, while keeping them eligible. The APR also measures the semester-to-semester success and progress of each athlete on scholarship.

Men’s golf, women’s tennis and volleyball also earned perfect multi-year scores.

“I want to congratulate our students, coaches and staff for their outstanding achievements in the classroom,” IU athletic director Fred Glass said in a statement. “Reaching our highest academic potential and earning Indiana University degrees is a top priority and these scores reflect our commitment to academic excellence.”

  1. Not sure where to put this, so I’ll ask here.

    I’m not sure I understand exactly what the new proposals for the Big Ten Network mean. Something about sharing with FOX Sports for half the year, then perhaps CBS and ESPN for the rest. Does this effectively dissolve the BTN as we know it? Is it only football? Regardless, the numbers being thrown around sound like this could be a massive deal for the members of the conference.

    1. DD,
      I’m hardly an expert on the TV deal, but my understanding is this is basically a re-distribution of games currently under contract with ESPN. It just sort of spreads the Big Ten coverage out while making more money for the conference. The BTN would essentially be unchanged. I think it’s both football and men’s basketball.

  2. This good news is only relevant when it is made relative to other State University Athletic Departments. How does IU compare to the rest of the Big Ten?
