Seventeen of the teams banned by the NCAA for sub-par scores on the newest Academic Progress Rate are in football or men’s basketball. Eight of those are historically black colleges including the only two schools to make the list in both sports: Alabama State and Florida A&M. The money gap at Division I colleges is continuing to show up on the playing fields and in the classrooms. Thirty-six teams will be banned from the 2014-15 postseason because of sub-par scores on the newest APR, which was released Wednesday, May 14, 2014. Not one of them comes from a power conference.
