The NCAA Committee on Infractions to Boise State: Sanctions will stand

Brian Losness-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The NCAA Committee on Infractions has reinstated the original sanctions on Boise State following the school’s appeal of scholarship losses. That appeal resulted in the Infractions Appeals Committee ruling that the losses imposed were excessive and said that the COI needed to re-evaluate that penalty.

In spite of the NCAA Appeals Committee recommendations the COI has reaffirmed the nine-scholarship suspension penalty against the Boise St. Broncos. The school had imposed that rule on itself for the 2011, 2012 and 2013 recruiting cycles, but head coach Chris Petersen wanted to end the sanctions by the 2013 season. This decision could be appealed one more time, but it is unclear at this time what further steps, if any, Boise State will take.

The penalties were for violations resulting from how it housed recruits during the summer, and prior to formal school enrollment. At times they were housed with other players, either on a couch or floor. The NCAA rules state that prospective players must pay the fair market rate for lodging even when coaches help them find a place to stay.
