Question from Happy
How has the NCAA stipulations for graduation affected recruiting for you/others? Does this help or hurt athletic programs, because I still havenít used the Pythagorean theorem since I graduated.
Response from Head Coach John McCormack
I appreciate your in depth knowledge of the Pythagorean theory. The NCAA has implemented the Academic Progress Rate (APR) and has changed recruiting for everyone. Each student is scored on four points for the year. If at the end of the year your score is below 925 then the problems start. The NCAA has also implemented a number of other rules for baseball. I hope you are doing well. Thanks again for your support.
