Default Boise State gets NCAA probation, scholarship cuts

Quote:
BOISE, Idaho (AP)—The NCAA placed Boise State on probation for three years and imposed other sanctions Tuesday for major violations by the football program and other sports.

The sanctions included a public reprimand, a one-year postseason ban for women’s tennis and recruiting restrictions and scholarship reductions. Some of the penalties had previously been self-imposed by the university.

Boise State’s football program will be able to offer three fewer scholarships each year, from 85 to 82, through the 2013-14 season. The football team will also be allowed fewer contact practices during spring training for three years.

Gregory Sankey, associate commissioner of the Southeastern Conference and a member of the NCAA Committee on Infractions, said the committee opted to go beyond the penalties that Boise State imposed on itself because the violations took place over multiple years.

Boise State President Bob Kustra said Boise State’s rapid growth over the last decade, from an upstart Division II program into a perennial Top 25 team, likely outstripped the school’s capacity to keep tabs on compliance with NCAA rules. Kustra, who fired former athletic director Gene Bleymaier in August, said he’d hoped the self-imposed sanctions would have been enough to avoid probation.

I would have put them on probation for having that blue field and knocked them back down to Div II where teams with blue fields belong.

This. I can't even watch their home games. It's just too much for the eyes to take.

When I was at Arkansas State we played there. Its unreal. It makes you dizzy and their players appear out of nowhere. Our QB threw 5 picks and never saw a single DB.

A college trying to be a sporting power violating the rules..... sounds about right.
