Football improves, men's basketball dips in new NCAA APR report

Posted May 14th - 3:28pm by Greg Wrubell

The latest NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) report shows continued improvement across the Division I membership, while BYU's institutional APR score held relatively steady and the football program saw a slight but important jump that keeps the team clear of the NCAA's "danger zone," relative to low-performance infractions.

The NCAA Division I four-year APR average (measuring 2009-10 through 2012-13 academic years) is currently 976, up from 974 last year. Averaging the team scores for BYU's 21 sports produces an institutional APR score of 973, down a single point from last year.

BYU's 10 men's sports averaged a 2013 multi-year APR score of 967--up six points from last year, while the school's 11 women's sports averaged a score of 978--down slightly from 981 in 2013.

Posted May 14th - 10:29am by Greg Wrubell

This month, the first college football preseason publications will make their way to the stores and become available online, meaning that kickoff inches ever closer.

BYU opens the season three-and-a-half months from now at Connecticut, and to help keep Cougar fans' senses sharp in the buildup to gameday, well, that's where these weekly tests come in.

So, once again, put the smart phones aside and resist the urge to Google the answers, and enjoy another 'Cougar Quiz'!

Greg's 'Cougar Quiz' #3

Posted May 7th - 11:36am by Greg Wrubell

Thousands of Cougar fans have already taken the weekly trivia challenge, with varying degrees of success.

Some fans thought Quiz #1 was a little soft, so we hardened it up last week and high scores were a little harder to come by.

What do you think of this week's version? Have a run at it, then encourage your BYU-fan friends to join in and take the quiz for themselves!

Greg's 'Cougar Quiz' #2

The BYU football season is less than four months away now, and in a continuing effort to minimize length of the off-season, we're back with another 10-question trivia quiz for Cougar die-hards.

In the spirit of fun and competition, attempt to refrain from using electronic aids in the completion of the quiz. Sure, you could Google everything, but that would just be lame.

PROVO — With just four months until the start of the 2014 football season, the BYU Cougars appear to have locked up their bowl destination, should they be eligible.

Carlino reportedly chooses Marquette

Posted Apr 25th - 3:32pm by Jason Shepherd

PROVO — Just one day after reporting that BYU guard Matt Carlino would begin official visits next month, ESPN's Jeff Goodman reported on Friday afternoon that Carlino has decided to transfer to Marquette.

BYU announced on April 1 that Carlino had decided to transfer to another program for his last season of eligibility. Because Carlino will graduate from BYU in June, he will be eligible to play immediately for the Golden Eagles next season.

Marquette is in the middle of a transition to a new head coach. Longtime Duke assistant Steve Wojciechowski was hired at the beginning of April to replace Buzz Williams, who left to take the head coaching job at Virginia Tech.

On April 1, BYU head coach Dave Rose announced that Carlino would be transferring elsewhere for his senior season of eligibility.

Cougars pleased as spring football comes to a close

Posted Apr 4th - 9:24pm by Jason Shepherd

PROVO — The BYU Cougars concluded spring football practices on Friday evening. After five weeks, the Cougars feel like they got the work done that was needed and have a much better sense of what to expect come the fall.

Last year’s spring football was all about implementing a new “go fast, go hard” offense. This year, the players and coaches were able to focus more on player development and playing at a higher level. Head Coach Bronco Mendehall was happy with his team’s offensive performance and talked about what and who impressed him over the past few weeks.

“Our completion percentage (was) very high for the entire spring, our third down percentage (was) very high for the entire spring,” Mendenhall said. “The ability to protect the quarterback is improving, the emergence of some players at wide receivers; Nick Kurtz, the junior college transfer was really impressed as he progressed through the spring.
