Florida State Improves APR Scores Across The Board

I'm not going to spend a lot of time on APR. It's a silly formula that fails to accurately reflect the academic happenings at an institution and absolutely should not be used on a comparative basis between schools with different academic standards. Far too much of a school's score is determined by players who leave the school for a variety of reasons, many of which are unrelated to football.

There is only one thing that matters with the APR: penalty or no penalty. And Florida State is not subject to any penalty, unlike UConn hoops which will not be in the tournament this year. Nor are they particularly close to suffering a penalty next year.

Florida State's football score is a 937. This is the highest score for the 'Noles since the 2006-2007 academic year.

Of course, because this is a rolling average of academic years 2007-2008 through 2010-2011, much of the lack of oversight, failed classes thanks to the academic cheating scandal from 2007, etc. are still reflected in this number.

The number should take a big jump next year because because the cheating scandal stuff comes off the books. It will also improve because FSU's academics have improved a lot thanks to things like the elimination of pre-dawn workouts (allowing kids to get adequate sleep), nutrition improvements and better attention to detail in general.

Baseball scored a 957, which is its highest score ever. Hoops turned in a 958, its highest score since 2006-2007.

And there you have it.
