This seems like the obvious: Cornell's men's and women's sports teams rank among the NCAA's brightest in terms of APR (not the borrowing term, but Academic Progress Report). Most notable is that men's golf and football have been honored every year since 2004-2005.
Cornell release
Each of Cornell's 26 sports ranked received a mark of 974 or better [max is 1000], with 15 scoring a 990 or above. Five teams received perfect scores of 1,000, with men's golf, women's gymnastics, women's lacrosse, men's soccer and men's tennis each posting perfect scores. The average of the 26 teams was an impressive 990.2.

Is it possible, without harming graduation rates, that Cornell football could fare a little better on the Athletic Progress Report even if at some slight cost to the Academic Progress Report?

Following the link back, if you want the results for our historic Ivy League, one must scroll down to search for The Ivy League. Sorry about that, Buckeyes.

And if you were to search the most reason season (2015-16) for the SEC and men's basketball, Kentucky scored a perfect 1000. Maybe the Russians worked on that race, too.

I don't understand the calculation. [www.ncaa.org]

Each student-athlete receiving athletically related financial aid earns one point for staying in school and one point for being academically eligible.
A team’s total points are divided by points possible and then multiplied by 1,000 to equal the team’s Academic Progress Rate.
Put a zero in both numerator and denominator for the Ivies, and the ratio is indeterminate. I don't even see how to define the limit as both approach zero.

Not only the Ivies. How does this work for any arbitrary conference? Do they have a bunch of players who stay in school but are academically ineligible? If this is the actual scoring, you would think/hope EVERY school would have a score of 1000
