The NCAA on Wednesday released a report on its Academic Progress Rate, or APR, on Wednesday.
The APR measures whether students are staying in school and remaining academically eligible. An obvious flaw is that if players leave the program because of a coaching change or other factors, it can drastically affect APR.
Overall APR has risen drastically in virtually all sports in the last 10 years. Utah's average APR of 980 is just one point below last year's school record of 981.
Here are some highlights — and a few lowlights — for Ute fans.
• Kyle Whittingham's football team is in the 70th to 80th percentile in the country with a multiyear APR of 970. The team had a 2012-13 APR of 985, far exceeding the FBS school average of 957.
