Maryland announced that Stoglin and Parker were both suspended. Stoglin entered the draft. Parker is reported to be transferring. Both are only sophomores. Is this analysis correct? Under the APR formula, this semester MD will take a 4 point hit on academic standing and retention, and next year Maryland will take an APR hit of 2 points on retention. Under the formula, assuming MD's 12 other scholarship players get perfect scores, the best MD's APR for the 2011-2012 academic year would be: First Semester 1000 Second Semester 857 [(24/28)*1000] 2011-2012 one year APR of 929 2012-2013 929 [(26/28)*1000] 2013-2014 929 Is this correct? A school continues to be penalized 1 point each year for retention? Or is the retention point only counted in the academic year of the student's departure? Next, Maryland's 2008-2009 APR is 913 2009-2010 APR is 945 2010-2011 APR is not calculated yet 2011-2012 Max APR is 929 2013-2014 NCAA tournament they are in based on four year average above 900. 2014-2015 NCAA tournament two year average requirement goes up to 940. Four year average now becomes 930. The two year score would be based on 2011-2012 (929 max) and 2012-2013 data. How long does a player's departure hurt retention? Only for the first semester they were expected back, or through the academic year? If the hit is only for one semester, that hit is "halved" by the next semester. Also, if a school is on the quarter or trimester system, how is the APR calculated.
