APR talk puts conference realignment talk on hold - for now

These are crazy times in college athletics. Nary a day goes by when new rumors surrounding conference realignment aren't popping up. If Missouri does this and West Virginia does that, what does that mean for Louisville or UConn or Rutgers?

However, the APR guidelines currently have taken over center stage especially in this state. My colleague David Borges has been following the ramifications at UConn and there are some mighty impactful ramifications. He is reporting that the UConn men's team is almost certain to not react the minimum academic performance level the NCAA is setting and the Huskies will not be eligible to play in the 2013 NCAA men's basketball tournament.

Obviously, this is something to keep an eye on as the NCAA is getting serious when it comes to teams making the grade.

Future NCAA tournament appearances for the UConn women's basketball is not in jeopardy with these new NCAA guidelines.

I received a request from the folks at CPTV to remind people that subscriptions to the Hoop Streams are currently available for $59.95 for the entire season, $34.95 for a monthly package and $14.95 for a 48-hour period of access. CPTV currently has the rights to 18 regular-season games and is in negotiations for the games at Seton Hall, Villanova and Syracuse.
