The only definitive info from the NCAA in that article is this: "The NCAA confirmed Thursday that scores from those years will be used to determine eligibility."
No mention in the article about waivers which have been granted to half the schools applying for them in the past year.
It is also an incomplete article that does not mention the waiver process or the fact that they may end up using the 2011 and 2012 scores afterall.Try again. It's a wire service article written by the same writer who has been on the Connecticut beat for years.
What the NCAA will do is what they can do without getting sued. Meaning... They cannot punish people retroactively.
My bet is they will start with this years APR as the first year of the new system. Only way not to cause serious ruckus...
Otherwise schools like uconn would sue and bring to light just how absurd the APR system is, make the NCAA look even stupider than it already does on most days.
Say what? I can't believe that this is true...
UConn will not be banned from 2013 tourney. I guaranfluckuntee that 2011-2012's scores (if they're good), will either be the one that is used in the 2 year average if released more quickly OR will be used successfully as the basis for "significant improvement" waiver. Stop getting your knickers in a twist. EDUCATE yourself before prostrating yourself on the ground sobbing like pansies.
Here is another article from the Connecticut Post. Pay close attention to Walter Harrison's comments about possible changes in data collection years used in determining tournament eligibility that would favor UConn and also re; the waiver process.Weren't you the one reporting UConn was going to miss the 2012 tournament just a couple days ago?

We're(Susan is) Getting Our House In Order! Honest!
Not that UConn is free from blame here, but I think it's evident that the APR is a pretty darnty way to judge academic performance. A guy like Gavin Edwards could be one or two classes away from graduation and not get credit, but then a one and done could get credit for spending eight months in college.
Most important thing is to let Anthony Bennett know that he can come and not miss the NCAA Tourney. Maybe text him. Text him one letter at a time. And call him every 2 minutes. Apparently that's ok now... I wonder who the most annoying NCAA coach will be with constant texting... If Steve Lappas still coached id say him
Uhhh fine w/e. I was just frustrated at the time. It was an emotional post. Chill... After a couple of blunts and a 40 I realize I won't abandon my fellow Uconn brethren. This is truly disappointing however. HUSKY 4 LIFE.So if I understand you correctlysince the NCAA is trying to institute a new set of standards which might force UConn to miss the 2013 tournament you will stop being a fan? How do unreasonable NCAA actions cause you to cease being a fan of your team?
