Texas has now gone 971, 978 and now 972 in the last three years. APR isn’t really about academic excellence so much as compliance, competence and a demonstration of basic organizational ability. In that regard, it’s not surprising that the detail-oriented Herman regime is on point.

More importantly, it demonstrates a lot of distance from the moribund APRs that were routinely turned in at the whimpering conclusion of the Brown era.

APR is a useful canary in the coal mine for the larger program. Are people working? Doing their jobs? Are staff and players invested?

So far, that canary is chirping.
