Quack Fix: Oregon's APR is Much Improved, But There Is Room For Improvement

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Your morning helping of Oregon Ducks news.

This is really the worst time of year for news. Baseball and softball are good, but don't generate the content and interest that football and basketball do. It's not quite close enough to start really thinking about college football yet. But, we tire away to amass enough Quack to keep you satisfied. Here goes:

Links

  • More out about the basketball rape investigation. The UO wants to make it very clear that they've done absolutely nothing wrong. Biology professor Nathan Tublitz sees controversy and wouldn't miss a chance to hear the sound of his own voice. Both of these are the most predictible responses ever and neither actually help the situation. My take on why both parties have missed the boat will be out later this morning.
  • The APR scores were released from Pac-12 schools. Football pulled in a 958 APR, which rates it 6th in the conference. Due to four-year rolling averages, the basketball team finally gets to drop its 870 from the Kent/Altman transition year, replacing it with an 845. While that takes Oregon out of danger of a postseason ban, it is still third lowest in the Pac-12, and isn't likely to improve with three players being kicked out of the program. Oregon has made progress, but there is still a ways to go.
  • In good news, our softball team is really good. #1 overall seed good. Their tournament games from Eugene will be on the Pac-12 Network this weekend.
  • The Register-Guard profiles a couple of track seniors.
That's all I've got this morning. If you find more, share. Go Ducks!
