Default Nebraska reports textbook violations to NCAA

Quote:
Nebraska acknowledged Tuesday that it distributed nearly $28,000 in textbooks and other school supplies to athletes from 2007-10, material that wasn't required and amounts to what the school says are three violations of NCAA rules.

The school said it outlined the violations in a report to the NCAA, pertaining to book scholarships, extra benefits and a failure to monitor. It self-imposed a two-year probationary period as well as a fine of $28,000 payable to charity.

The school said the athletes involved have already paid the amount of their individual extra benefits to charities. It said it has processed 57 such repayments that were valued at more than $100 and another 181 that were less than $100.

The NCAA allows schools to cover the cost of required course textbooks in athletic scholarships but not extra, professor-recommended books. Nebraska said it uncovered the violation on its own last fall and determined that athletes in 19 sports received books and supplies that were not required.

It said the total value of the books and supplies was $27,869.47.

Nebraska athletic department spokesman Keith Mann declined additional comment Tuesday.

In the report to the NCAA, the school said it regretted the mistakes and has implemented a new process for giving athletes their scholarship books. It said there was no intentional wrongdoing, monetary reward or competitive advantage gained by the athletes involved.

Yeah, if there is going to be a type of NCAA violation that I can let slide this is it. Maybe there should be something changed to allow these items to be paid for since they are required for school.

Cool Re: Nebraska reports textbook violations to NCAA

...any chance this will turn out to be a sellback scam?

The kids get every single book and sell back all the optional ones for $?

Otherwise why would (*edit* I want to know how many) kids all get the 'recommended' reading?'

This is a distinct possibility. Strong evidence of this would the lack of football players that can read.

I'm guessing you weren't the average scholarship athlete in college though. If that was the purpose of this program, then it's no better than a money laundering scheme.

No but I was an academic scholarship student and I wanted to get my money's worth.
