How do transfers impact ncaa academic stats?



Just curious. Block clearly doesn't care about wins and losses. He also apparently doesn't care about money left on the table by inept marketing at Morgan. He also apparently doesn't care about athletes bailing after enduring a season or more of Ben Ball.

But academic black eyes should be an item of interest to Block. I noticed that for the most reason season posted, 2011-2012, UCLA has the 2nd lowest Academic Progress Rate in the Pac-12, ahead of only Oregon.

I don't know the ins and outs of these calculations. It appears that waivers may be granted, so players turning pro or players transfering to another school, would not count against the score.

Does anybody know how this works for UCLA basketball? Is the low score simply for the players who stick it out, or is it dragged down by players who leave to see how green the grass is on the other side?

Again, Block doesn't care about success on the field. He may not care about success off the field, as indicated by the turmoil in Howland's program under Chianti's "oversight". But he should care about success in the classroom. The low APR score should indicate an issue to Block.

I am not suggesting that leading the conference in APR should be the primary goal of the program. But any tool which would get Block off the dime, and get him to clean Chianti and Ben out, would be worthwhile. It would be nice to know whether there are inherent flaws in this tool, which would allow Chianti to weasle out (not that he wouldn't try in any event).

Thanks in advance for clarification.
