rick villarreal was at the game, ridiculous, that's why we lost.

Very petty to bring this up.  Glad RV was there and glad he continues to support the program.  Focus your energy on the positive future we have now.

Glad he was there to support his former players and coaching staff.  Hell, thanks to him and Coach Mac for helping to get our grades up as a program so we could be at a bowl game with a losing record.  

I totally agree that even with the dumpster fire for the lack of depth on the roster here, Mac and RV are the only reason we are in a bowl game compared to SMU. Thank you to RV and Mac for the grades and one hell of a senior class. I feel really bad for Buyers, Scott, etc for them not being to get the W, but I think these guys are just glad they were able to play 1 more game.

Doesn't APR have to do with transfers, not grades? I think I read that on here on the Ivery thread?

Each player accounts for a % of the APR. @UNT 90 Grad I believe knows probably the most about APR compared to anyone on the site. 

Being new to seriously following college football I try to learn as much as possible as well as keeping up with the Green. I am totally open to being wrong, but this transfer thing is in my head somehow.

I believe the basic info is each player gets a Point for being academically elig. along with the previous years graduated students with the schools losing points(I believe) for players becoming inelg like Ivery and losing players like Goree.. Don't quote me on that but its something along those lines I believe

APR has to do with staying eligible and on path to graduation.  Unless something has changed recently, transfers only negatively affect your APR if the student has less than a 2.6 GPA. 

"Q: Why does the APR make a school lose points for a transfer if the student-athlete’s GPA is below a 2.6?

A: Data show that transferring has a negative impact on a student-athlete’s academic success and eventual graduation. But, according to NCAA research, student-athletes who transfer with at least a 2.6 grade-point average have the same likelihood of academic success as a student-athlete who remains at his or her original institution."

I would hope that each of us would make a new year's resolution to quit dumping on R.V. and move on. To continue to bash him comes across as petty and spiteful to some of us.

Meh. He made excuses for keeping Benford 3 years past any reasonable expiration date. I figure we're good for 2 and a half more years worth of jokes. 

Or, at the very least, he's fair game as long as his buyout checks are still cashable.
