People who think Alabama's academics are comparable (or even superior) to Michigan's: Alabama fanboys who would likely give Nick Saban a hand release if it meant getting another crystal football.
People who think Michigan's academics are better: Everybody else.
Ok, there, Cletus...let me jump in here and try this another way: APR has nothing to do with the qualitative ranking of a university. It does not measure the regard they, or their programs, are held in. APR is the evaluation of a school's ability to "progress" (as in "P") their student-athletes. This is why APR can be substantially impacted by regime change and heavy transfers, etc., etc.
At the end of the day, a school could have the HIGHEST APR in the COUNTRY for a decade running. That doesn't mean it would translate to that school being considered an Tier-1 institution...as Alabama is barely a Tier-1 institution (and yet somehow higher than so many of its SEC compatriots). And this moves on the assumption that the APR is come by honestly, rather than the result of institutional efforts to keep athletes eligible come what may. Not that I would ever accuse an SEC school of academic dishonesty. Ahem.
I really hate this all-access vip.
