Rob Carr - Terps Show Well in NCAA APR Reports

Football continued to make strides since 2009-10 when the multiyear score was 922. Since then, football has reported multiyear scores of 931 and 937 in the latest data. Under Randy Edsall, the football team has had an increase of 15 APR points in two years. Men's and women's basketball had multiyear scores of 948 and 950, respectively.

I'm not a fan of the APR. I think it's pretty dumb and has a lot of flaws. That being said, I'm glad football is improving.
