08:20 AM ET 06.21 | Coming off its most successful season on the field, Oklahoma State football now finds itself on the Academic Progress Rates watch list. [OSU's football team was one of 42] with four-year APR scores below 930, which in two years will be the lowest a program can go before being banned from postseason competition. ... OSU associate athletic director Kevin Fite, who leads the school's athletic compliance office, released a statement explaining the score. "Over the last two years, football has had student-athletes that have chosen to transfer, or pursue professional football careers, despite remaining eligibility," Fite said. "Those factors have contributed to a loss of APR retention points."

There had to be some calculation for the guys that leave after 1 year in basketball, or it would be a bloodbath at Kentucky.

This is simple the Boys need to hire more tutors to take tests for their players so they can sleep all day and be ready for practice in the afternoon.

.... that is why you always have a couple of walk ons, only allow the smart ones that gets 4.0 and brings the average up, it is a team average.

...that explains UTx having a 1000 score

Has a smart kid ever run a 4.2 forty???

Jealous much? LOVE the broad generalizations

Arky's Knile Davis worked 2 shifts a night at What-a-Burger to help his family finances while in high school, often going to school w/o any sleep. He still graduated a semester early and enrolled at Arkansas when he was 17. He is on schedule to graduate from COLLEGE is 3 years and has a current GPA of better than 3.5

Barring injury, he's a 1st round draft pick in the NFL. He doesn't run a 4.2, but he does run a 4.4.

Knile isn't the only one.....there are good kids on every team. Don't let the Terrelle Prior's of the world resemble all the D-1 players
