Strong's name Kragged to the bottom

Despite overseeing the most successful academic semester in recent Louisville football history, Charlie Strong now has his name attached to the lowest six-year APR number in Div. 1 football.

CBS compiled the APR averages for the 109 eligible football programs between the 2003-2004 and 2009-2010 academic years, and the results highlighted a distant last finish for Louisville.

Coach, School Rating
1. Charlie Strong, Louisville 869
2. Rob Ianello, Akron 900
3. Larry Porter, Memphis 903
4. Neil Callaway, UAB 904
5. Ron English, Eastern Michigan 918
5. Howard Schnellenberger, FAU 918
5. Jeff Quinn, Buffalo 918
8. Paul Rhoads, Iowa State 919
9. x-Todd Berry, La.-Monroe 920
10. Mike Price, UTEP 920

The exercise included any head coach if they were in place at any point during an academic year from Aug. 1 to July 31 and were assigned that team's APR for that year. Each coach's average APR ranking included all years they were a head coach between 2003 and 2010, even if they were at more than one school in that time frame.

So now even though Strong has, by all accounts, done a complete 180 on the football program's academic performance, he has his name attached to this national piece of bad publicity.
