The NCAA released its academic progress report data Wednesday. The OSU football program will be able to take part in postseason play but they will also face some practice restrictions. Oklahoma State must lose two hours a week in practice time which equates to one practice per week for the upcoming season. Teams must earn a 940 two year average and a 930 four year average. The Cowboys met the two year average, which made them eligible for postseason play but they fell short on the four year average and which means a reduction in practice time. “We are taking steps to ensure that our APR numbers improve moving forward,” Athletic Director Mike Holder said. “We are accountable for what we do and ultimately, we are here to serve our student-athletes and do our best to keep them on track to be lifelong contributors to society.” The APR data measures eligibility and retention for each athlete for each term.
