NCAA Report on Boise State Violations

The report went about as expected.  The men's and women's tennis programs and track programs were the hardest hit, with the women's tennis program ineligible for post-season play following this season for one year.  That latter penalty is the harshest of the investigation, but it is a reminder to boosters and the university to toe the line or pay the penalty.

The football program loses three scholarships per year for three years because players bought other players tacos at Taco Bell.  Boise State essentially imposed this penalty on themself for this year, and the NCAA extended this penalty for two more years.

I've told people for years not to talk to potential recruits and not to buy current student-athletes so much as a Coke.  This is why.
