NCAA announces infractions penalties for Oklahoma State football progr

Recommended Posts

STILLWATER — The Oklahoma State football program was put on one-year probation, fined $8,500, given self-imposed recruiting restrictions and had its student-athlete host program temporarily suspended following an NCAA ruling Friday that the university did not follow its drug testing policy or properly regulate its Orange Pride program.


From January 2008 to October 2012, five football players who tested positive for banned substances participated in a total of seven games in which they should have been withheld, in accordance with the university’s policy.

OSU athletic director Mike Holder told the NCAA in a January hearing he “mistakenly” believed he had “latitude” as the drug program’s administrator to make exceptions under the policy and approved those exceptions through coach Mike Gundy.

Gundy admitted he was “guilty” in making decisions that contradicted the policy if he felt suspension was not in the player’s best interest. However, Holder was assigned to oversee the drug testing policy and he said “there is no question” he should have gone by “the letter of the law” and those student athletes in violation should have been suspended in line with the university’s policy.

Pretty much vindication for Okie State after that discredited Sports Illustrated article a year or so ago. SI pretty much did a "Rolling Stone Frat report" on Okie State. Terrible research, terrible reporting, quick to rush to judgement. But is what it is and Okie State has been held accountable for the infractions actually discovered. As it should be...rules are rules. Seems to be a fair end to a stupid hatchet job by unprofessional SI reporters.

I self loathing 101 a required core course for undergraduate studies at UNT?

The problem with musicians and artists are they don't care about sports (for the most part, I know some of you are art/music grads). So in the event that a musician or artist strikes gold it would more than likely not be donated to the university that have the individual the platform to succeed. In the event that one did donate, it would be given to the graduating college of the individual. This has been a vicious cycle at UNT. The up and coming business & engineering programs will help change that, but it will take time (another reason why winning now is so important).

      Documents and bank records obtained in discovery during the federal investigation into the underbelly of college basketball detail in meticulous fashion the expenditures of prominent former NBA agent Andy Miller, his former associate Christian Dawkins and his agency, ASM Sports. They include expense reports and balance sheets that list cash advances, as well as entertainment and travel expenses for high school and college prospects and their families.
      Yahoo Sports viewed hundreds of pages of documents from the years-long probe that had federal authorities monitoring multiple targets and intercepting more than 4,000 calls across 330 days, providing a clear-eyed view into the pervasive nature of the game’s underground economy.
      While three criminal cases tied to the investigation may take years to play out, the documents viewed by Yahoo revealed the extent of the potential NCAA ramifications from the case. The documents show an underground recruiting operation that could create NCAA rules issues – both current and retroactive – for at least 20 Division I basketball programs and more than 25 players.
      The documents tie some of the biggest names and programs in the sport to activity that appears to violate the NCAA’s amateurism rules. This could end up casting a pall over the NCAA tournament because of eligibility issues. There’s potential impermissible benefits and preferential treatment for players and families of players at Duke, North Carolina, Texas, Kentucky, Michigan State, USC, Alabama and a host of other schools. The documents link some of the sport’s biggest current stars – Michigan State’s Miles Bridges, Alabama’s Collin Sexton and Duke’s Wendell Carter – to specific potential extra benefits for either the athletes or their family members. The amounts tied to players in the case range from basic meals to tens of thousands of dollars.
      NCAA president Mark Emmert released a statement Friday morning to address the latest developments in the corruption probe.
      “These allegations, if true, point to systematic failures that must be fixed and fixed now if we want college sports in America. Simply put, people who engage in this kind of behavior have no place in college sports. They are an affront to all those who play by the rules,” the statement read. “Following the Southern District of New York’s indictments last year, the NCAA Board of Governors and I formed the independent Commission on College Basketball, chaired by Condoleezza Rice, to provide recommendations on how to clean up the sport. With these latest allegations, it’s clear this work is more important now than ever. The Board and I are completely committed to making transformational changes to the game and ensuring all involved in college basketball do so with integrity. We also will continue to cooperate with the efforts of federal prosecutors to identify and punish the unscrupulous parties seeking to exploit the system through criminal acts.”

      An interesting and funny take on why UCF’s national title claim isn’t as goofy as it sounds.

      Loryn Goodwin....former UNT...former Butler....former UTSA player has now signed to play at Oklahoma State.  This has to be one of the most "traveled" women's basketball players I have ever seen.  One must wonder why it is that she is now set to play for her fourth university. I know some here blamed our then head basketball coach for her leaving. If it is coaching, this player has certainly found a lot of "challenging" coaches.  I simply have a hard time understanding all these transfers. Here's hoping she finds her place at OSU...heaven knows OSU needs some players on their women's side.
