Boise St meeting with NCAA to discuss infractions
Friday, June 10, 2011
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Boise State is meeting with the NCAA Committee on Infractions to discuss violations by its highly successful football program and other sports.
The football violations being reviewed Friday were committed between 2005 and 2008. The program already is dealing with several self-imposed penalties, including fewer scholarships for the next two years and less practice time.
The sanctions are part of a broader penalty package put in place by university officials for violations that also involve men's and women's tennis, and track and field. An NCAA inquiry and an internal investigation by the school identified 22 infractions and an absence of institutional controls necessary to fully comply with rules governing collegiate athletic programs.
