Last word on APR

I wrote a more detailed wrapup of the APR stuff on the football blog.
On this one, I wanted to pass along this LA Times story detailing USC’s situation pointing out that the Trojans have already taken the penalty, though nobody seemed to know it at the time.
Here is our story today on UW’s passing grade in the APR.
Someone asked on the football blog whether “all the recent transfers” will hurt the scores of the UW men’s and women’s team. As pointed out there, the UW hoops team had only one transfer this academic year — Adrian Oliver. The others (Phil Nelson, Harvey Perry) occurred during the 2006-07 academic year so they have already been accounted for as far as I can tell.
As the story points out, however, the four transfers this year for the women’s team are likely to hurt its score down the road. However, the good news for the women is that it has such a high score at the moment — 998 — that it can likely survive the hit without sustaining any penalties as long as the rest of it doesn’t drop too much. Remember, this is always a rolling four-year score.
