UM Receives Warning As NCAA Gets Tough With Secondary Violations

The NCAA is getting tougher on crime.  College sports’ governing body is now threatening to hand out suspensions to coaches over recruiting violations that have to date been secondary violations in nature.

Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo had to sit out a game in December over a person that was hired to work at an MSU basketball camp.  Now Houston Nutt has been served with a warning.

Last September, Ole Miss sent written scholarship offers to seven high school juniors.  That’s a no-no.  The Rebel athletic department discovered and reported the matter to the NCAA.  The NCAA accepted UM’s self-imposed penalties.

But as Kyle Veazey of The Jackson Clarion-Ledger points out, the NCAA sent a warning to the school as well.


“… please note that future similar violations may result in more significant penalties, including suspension of coaching-related activities for one or more contests.”


Nutt doesn’t sound worried as he told The JCL that the violation was inadvertent.  “I think the NCAA knows where our heart was and where our mind was on this thing, and I feel good about what was said.”

“I’m on the rules committee, and I understand where we’re going with secondary violations and I agree 100 percent,” Nutt added.  “The coaches that are trying to get an advantage by doing secondary violations, they’re going to be punished.  There’s no question about it, and that’s the way it should be.”

    The Absent Game

    Between me and my husband we have owned a lot more MP3 players over the years than I can count, together with Sansas, iRivers, iPods (traditional & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of gamers.
