To be fair to all parties, this data needs to be interpreted in the context of League scores generally trending downward, especially in the last five years.

But Harvard's APR scores really began to crash in 2011, which was the Crimson's first championship ever AND the senior year of Tommy Amaker's first recruiting class. The Harvard APR scores bounced off their nadir sub-930 scores of 2011 and 2012, but have never fully recovered, even though the two players who withdrew due to the 2013 cheating scandal subsequently returned and graduated a year late.

Then the rest of the League scores started to head downwards, a trend which continues today.

The operating hypothesis seems to be that Amaker's arrival at Harvard coincided with the Crimson beginning to recruit substantially weaker students academically. The rest of the League watched Harvard win its first championship in 2011 with those weak students and then its first NCAA bid in 2012 with an even weaker cohort academically.

The rest of the League woke up and smelled the coffee, starting the race to the bottom which continues as we speak.
