I don't believe college hockey will have a problem with this new cutline.

Doesn't college hockey have one of the best graduation rates?

I agree. I was a bit puzzled by the Syracuse situation they mentioned, though. Boeheim said the team lost scholarships even though the players left for the pros and were in good academic standing at the time, but the NCAA said the APR accounts for that. So which is it? The article never said.

Another problem with this formula I believe is transfers count against your score. I think this is why Purdue may be on the list, as it is not a school that has historically had problems graduating its scholarship athletes. I think doing away with the 1 year grades and evaluating strictly on the 4-year rolling average will lessen the impact of transfers. I don't know that it is fair to punish a school that loses a coach and then a couple of freshmen decide to leave because the new coach tells them they aren't in his plans. Of course if that impacts the potential of a post-season bid, maybe fewer coaches will alienate their players when they take over a program.
