University of Oklahoma Asks NCAA for Leniency in Regards to Athletics Violations
Oklahoma admitted today that the University committed two major rules violations in its
men’s basketball program, and has asked the NCAA for leniency despite this being the schools second serious infractions case in the past 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. However; the NCAA infractions committee has the authority to override such a designation.
Oklahoma has asked the NCAA to place the program on two more years of probation, vacate its wins from a 13-and-18 season in 2009-10 and take away one scholarship, two official visits and 10 in-person recruiting days during the upcoming academic year.
