The NCAA released this year's APR numbers on Tuesday, detailing how every program in the country is performing in the classroom. ESPN's Brett McMurphy broke down the football numbers by conference, and Auburn is in the middle of the SEC pack (albeit, the lower part of the middle).
Here's how the SEC numbers shake out.
|6. Mississippi State||967|
|7. South Carolina||966|
|8. Texas A&M;||954|
|t-10. Ole Miss||944|
Like everything else related to sports in the last year, Auburn isn't exactly excelling. But hey, maybe the Tigers' score is admirable. As George Costanza would say, it's right in that meaty part of the curve -- not showing off, not falling behind.
Hopefully, the less-than-stellar scores won't lead to a life of crime for any Tigers. The Van Buren Boys are rough.
