* The Pac-12 Hotline newsletter is published each Monday-Wednesday-Friday during the college sports season (and twice-a-week in the summer). This edition, from May 8, has been made available in archived form. APR scores for football and men’s basketball The NCAA on Wednesday released the latest Academic Progress Rate scores — those covering the 2017-18 school year. For those unfamiliar, the APR is the closest-to-real-time gauge of classroom performance and the best means of holding head coaches and athletic directors accountable for their programs. (On both counts, the APR surpasses graduation rates.) Here’s how the scores are calculated, per the NCAA: • Each student-athlete receiving athletically related financial aid earns one point for staying in school and one point for being academically eligible. • A team’s total points are divided by points possible and then multiplied by 1,000 to equal the team’s Academic Progress Rate. • In addition to a team’s current-year APR, its rolling four-year APR is also used to determine accountability. The Hotline has provided below the multi-year scores for each Pac-12 football and men’s basketball team over the past five reporting cycles. That’s an admittedly large range but one that seemingly provides an accurate depiction of the performance of each program through coaching changes and other disruptions. Note: I’ve listed the schools in order of the multi-year scores that were announced today: Football Washington: 977 – 974 – 984 – 986 – 991Utah: 973 – 983 – 983 – 983 – 989Stanford: 987 – 983 – 985 – 985 – 986Arizona State: 949 – 960 – 971 – 975 – 980Cal: 941 – 960 – 978 – 976 – 979USC: 948 – 959 – 968 – 973 – 972Oregon State: 946 – 949 – 956 – 968 – 971Oregon: 967 – 969 – 974 – 969 – 968Colorado: 957 – 968 – 968 – 970 – 965Washington State: 951 – 965 – 964 – 969 – 960Arizona: 961 – 955 – 955 – 946 – 952UCLA: 975 – 972 – 971 – 967 – 948 Basketball Stanford: 1000 – 1000 – 1000 – 1000 – 997Washington: 984 – 971 – 986 – 986 – 986Utah: 980 – 1000 – 990 – 985 – 980Arizona State: 1000 – 990 – 990 – 975 – 974Oregon State: 939 – 951 – 945 – 952 – 973USC: 959 – 959 – 969 – 973 – 973Colorado: 975 – 970 – 975 – 970 – 971Washington State: 938 – 949 – 953 – 967 – 970Cal: 954 – 960 – 970 – 970 – 961Arizona: 1000 – 979 – 974 – 963 – 960Oregon: 945 – 945 – 951 – 957 – 958UCLA: 965 – 962 – 950 – 944 – 933 Oh, and don’t forget: To be eligible for the postseason, teams must have a multi-year score of at least 930.
