Eyes On A Foe: Taking It In The Wazzu

The Washington State Cougars will be short 6 scholarships for the upcoming season. With a poor Academic Performance Rating (APR), the NCAA will impose sanctions against the program, which will lessen the amount of scholarships by 6. Fewer scholarships puts a serious hurt on a programs recruiting, and we all know Wazzu can use all the help they can get.

The APR was set in place in 2005, and is a compilation of statistics and graduation rates for each Division I program. Schools graduating less than 50% of their players are sanctioned. I'm not sure where the less than 50% of Washington State's players that didn't graduate went, but it surely wasn't into the NFL.
