What the Huskies want us to know now is that the penalty will be a one-year punishment.
Dom Amore of the Hartford Courant reports that UConn posted a 978 APR score on Wednesday which should help the Huskies get academically back on track.
And chances are that without the much-maligned APR and its public scores, UConn would have gone kept on the same ruinous academic path.
UConn’s APR for 2010-11, released Wednesday, is 978, which has been widely reported since last fall. The program expects to have at least as high a score for 2011-12.
If it does, the program will be out of APR danger once its one-year sanctions are over.
“The academic culture has changed,” says Ellen Tripp, who is interim director of UConn’s Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletics.
