Default Oklahoma admits major hoops violations

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma has asked the NCAA to place its men's basketball program on two more years of probation and vacate all wins from the 2009-10 season for two major rules violations by former assistant coach Oronde Taliaferro.

The university and NCAA investigators released a summary report Thursday proposing penalties for the infractions committee to consider. Athletic department spokesman Kenny Mossman said that process should take several weeks and Oklahoma will not comment until the process is resolved.

The Sooners also proposed taking away one scholarship, two official visits and 10 in-person recruiting days during the upcoming academic year as penalties for the violations committed while the program was already on probation.

Taliaferro resigned last year after the investigation started.

Hope that year of Tiny Gallon was worth it.

of course it was. Tiny Gallon= pimp. Though I wonder how many ounces it is compared to an imperial gallon or a U.S. wet gallon.

The AP reports:

Oklahoma admitted Thursday that it committed two major rules violations in its men's basketball program as it asked the NCAA for leniency despite its second serious infractions case in the last five years.

Under NCAA bylaws, a "repeat violator" can face a minimum of having the sport dropped for one or two seasons with no scholarships provided for two seasons. The NCAA infractions committee has the authority to override such a designation.

In a summary disposition report put together jointly with NCAA investigators, the school conceded that it does qualify under the description of repeat violator -- having two major infractions cases within five years in the same sport -- but said previous cases show those penalties "are not appropriate in this case."

"This is an isolated incident involving a single member of the coaching staff, who clearly knew his lack of action to prevent or report the violation was not acceptable," the university said.

  • 3 years probation
  • 15k in fines
  • 13 wins from 9/10 vacated
  • loss of 1 scholarship
  • "limited" recruiting
  • NOT a repeat violator

Adding to the above:


The AP reports:

The NCAA put Oklahomaon three years of probation and fine the school $15,000 on Friday for major violations in its men's basketball program.

The Division I infractions committee also vacated all 13 wins from Oklahoma's 2009-10 season, took away a scholarship and limited recruiting efforts, but did not label the school a "repeat violator," which would have made Oklahoma vulnerable to more severe penalties.

Most of the penalties had been proposed by the school, which said former assistant Oronde Taliaferro broke NCAA rules by failing to report that a player had received an impermissible extra benefit and by lying to investigators. The NCAA said its findings included unethical conduct by the former coach, extra benefits, preferential treatment and ineligible participation.
