The only MU sport NOT to make the grade was volleyball, and that appears to be an anomaly.

Nebraska had a overall APR of 927 so they passed. I don't know why they weren't listed when USA Today said 0 Teams in the Big 12 didn't make the cutoff. :cuss:

Memphis has a basketball rating of 891+ (meaning the "upper confidence boundary" is over 925, despite the ridiculous hit programs take for players who leave early even on good academic standing) and a football rating of 960. Overall was 941, and the only program to apparently be in the penalty zone was the men's outdoor track program.

USA Today didn't list us as making the grade, either. Overall, Nebraska is 927, and the basketball and football ratings were 946 and 929, respectively. Strange that they didn't include you.

On the whole, it's a retarded rule that will punish some schools for things outside their control and continue rewarding those who hand their "student-athletes" easy grades. In other words, it's a typical NCAA rule -- ****ed up beyond belief.

No wonder KU sucks at football. Bunch of dumbasses on the field.
