Mark Emmert Ups APR Ante
Mark Emmert and the NCAA took a firm stand when it comes to academics among student-athletes. Beginning in 2015, the academic requirements for incoming freshmen and transfer students will undergo considerable increases. Though the changes won't take effect immediately, several schools, most notably UConn have already felt the heat from poor academic showings. The Huskies became the first BCS-conference team to face a postseason ban due to a subpar APR.
