For the second straight year, The University of Texas received the top score among Big 12 football teams in the NCAA’s latest Academic Progress Rate report. The report included data from the 2003-04, 2004-05, 2005-06 and 2006-07 academic years, and the Longhorns received a score of 942, which is over the Division I football average of 934 and the Division I public university football average of 925.
Always good to see. Of course, Longhorn fans will also be watching closely this summer for progress on the discipline front. Last season's string of incidents embarrassed fans and the university alike, so much so that Brown created a special position for Ken Rucker to manage specifically for things like academics and good off field behavior.
