APR Goodness

The APR reports are out today and they are very good news for the Falcons.  You can check out the full BGSU release here, which I have no intention of doing anything but highlighting.  Suffice it to say that BG is strong across the board, at single-year perfect levels in eleven sports.

All of the Falcons' 18 sports have multi-year APR rates of 940 or above and 11 posted a perfect 1000 single-year rate in the latest report for the 2011-12 year. As well, 11 teams posted their best multi-year score since the APR began in 2004-05. All 18 of BGSU's teams were comfortably above the NCAA's minimum score of 900 to receive scholarship limitations or postseason bans. The women's tennis, women's golf and swimming programs at Bowling Green have the highest APR scores in the Mid-American Conference for their respective sports.

Make sure you mark this in the Greg Christopher legacy, by the way.

It isn't a matter of trading winning for academics or academics for winning.  In the MAC, you should be able to do both.  We want BG to win and we want them to do it in a way that we can be proud of. Lots of credit to all the people who work on this--coaches, support staff and athletes alike.

It is a good day to be a Falcon.
