Bad news for Colorado. The school reported to the NCAA that over the last six years a number of meals at the university were undercharged to student atheletes, totaling $61,700.
This is considered a "major" infraction by the NCAA, and Colorado will be put on two years probabtion, fined a hundred grand, and lose one football scholarship the next three seasons. I kinda feel bad for Dan Hawkins now, seeing as how this was going on long before he arrived, and he most likely had no idea this was going on.
Those training table meals are quoted as $14-15 dollars as well, which is a lot for a student to be spending consistently on a meal. I think UT's was somewhere around $10. Is it really a "major" infraction to be undercharging the atheletes overpriced meals? Especially since the university was doing it "inadvertantly" (I guess that is kinda an ambiguous term) and they reported it to the NCAA themselves. I guess what I'm asking is, does the punishment fit the crime here, and how much will the program suffer? I'm not too well versed on NCAA infractions.
