Gopher Academics Improve In 2010-11

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The University of Minnesota athletics department appears to be making improvements in the classroom.

The school released its results in the latest NCAA academic progress report on Wednesday. The report includes data from the 2007-08 school year through 2010-11.

The Gophers had all 25 of their varsity teams register multiyear rates above the 930 cutline, which means the programs will not be subject to scholarship reductions or postseason bans. It’s a step forward for the department, which went through a couple of rough years, including the football team losing scholarships in 2009.

Last fall the football team was one of 23 programs that earned a cumulative grade-point average above 3.00.

The Gophers had 10 programs post a perfect score of 1,000, the school’s highest number since the APR was instituted.
