Tennessee State's Football Program Now Eligible for Postseason After APR Score Adjustment

tsu-football-92609_zpskel9l7ha.jpgNASHVILLE, TN - Some great news has hit the Tennessee State University Athletic Department on Thursday.

According to source, the Tigers are now eligible for postseason play after a recalculation of the football program's multi-year Academic Progress Rate (APR), the team is not subject to a postseason ban on Level I penalty for the upcoming season.

"Although many perceive the APR as purely academic, it is actually more complex than that with retention being an equal part of the calculation," Teresa Phillips (Director of Athletics) said. "The athletics department, university and football staff will continue to work together in meeting and exceeding th standards established by the NCAA."

With Thursday's news, the Tennessee State athletic program plans to continue its stretch of exceeding the NCAA's APR threshold for all sports and has never been issued a postseason ban or penalty of any level. On May 27, the NCAA published its annual report in which Tennessee State's football program rate was deemed to be below the benchmark set by the NCAA.

"We are extremely happy for our players, coaches, and the entire University," Glenda Glover (President of Tennessee State University) said. "Above all, we are here to educate young men and women. This has always been and will remain our top priority at TSU."
