Boise State responds to NCAA allegations

On Monday night Boise State announced that they have responded to the NCAA regarding secondary violations in several sports (including football) and a major violation in women's tennis.  Boise State had already self-reported a secondary violation in football, but a major violation in women's tennis this October has led the NCAA to allege a "lack of institutional control" at Boise State.

Boise State launched an internal investigation in March 2009 and according to the school, had reported all violations through May 2010.  The violations in the football program mostly involved housing, transportation, and meals.  The NCAA has determined that the total dollar value for the expenses over five years was $4,934.  The NCAA Committee of Infractions will review Boise State's response June 10, but Boise State feels confident they have done due dillegence with their internal investigation.

“I am confident we have responded thoroughly to the NCAA. Our internal review was comprehensive and our response was very detailed. We will continue to provide our full cooperation,” Boise State president Bob Kustra said. “We are deeply committed to following all NCAA rules and to ensuring that our athletic department works diligently so that our procedures reflect the highest standard. I am disappointed that we face these allegations. It is unacceptable, and the athletic department staff understand and agree with my position.”

On the football front, this has not been a huge deal to this point with the violations being secondary.  But the threat of a department-wide institutional control allegation is much more serious.  Boise State has been very active making changes to prevent future violations, including beefing up their compliance department.  If history says anything, complete cooperation is usually the best way to go.  History also tells us that the NCAA rarely expedites any aspect of an investigation, so don't expect that final report for several months.

hey vandal

It's strange that all of my friends that graduated from the University of Idaho are struggling to find work right now just like the rest of us. It's strange that people even use academics as an argument in forums discussing athletics.
It's strange that people interested in football won't actually discuss football.
Strange huh?

Boise State responds to NCAA allegations

You know how it works.....

The crooked NCAA and the SEC are SOOOOO mad they got caught cheating at Auburn that Boise State, TCU, and Nevada will feel the full wrath of the thieves......SMU might get the death penalty again for Scam Newton's conviction.

Crooks......

Poor Boise State, if only they were in the SEC, they would be punished for NOT having enough infractions and paid players on the team.

Boise State responds to NCAA allegations

What an absolute joke of a "university".  Their four year graduation rate and acceptance rate and on par with most community colleges, one fourth of their football team has a criminal record, and they have one of the biggest whiners I've ever seen as their "university's" president.   And now this on top of it all.  Hell I'm surprised Bob Kustra actually had time to responded to the NCAA allegations.  I thought he would  be too busy sitting in his office, getting butt-hurt, and writing angry letters about how no one respects his pathetic excuse of a junior college.  I'm sure plenty of analysts will try to get everybody to sympathize with them (just like the Spy Gate scandal with the New England Cheatriots) but this just shows that Boise Junior College will do anything to keep their athletics programs competitive because that's all they've got.  It's not like this is the first time the school's athletic program has been accused of something like this either.  I seem to recall one of the school's own former players claiming that they purposely guide their athletes to major in their fraudulent communications program so they can take a bunch of BS classes.  

"We are deeply committed to following all NCAA rules and to ensuring that our athletic department works diligently so that our procedures reflect the highest standard."  Yeah alright Kustra, you're full of sh,it.

Also, here's a question.  As much as I don't really buy the conspiracy theories about how this site has it out for Iowa and Ohio St, why is it that this viewers had to go to the college football homepage to find this story?  The stories for Iowa and Ohio St have been regurgitated on the front page links of the site over....and over....and over....and...

The competitors have it on the front page of their sites.  That's actually where I first saw the story, on SI and ESPN. 

I still won't exactly buy the conspiracy theories, but come on CBS, at least PRETEND to show objectivity.  Just because your writers (specifically you Dodd) tried to shove Boise St down everyone's throat at the start of the year, doesn't mean you shouldn't give this the same weight that Iowa and Ohio St have been getting.  If those stories deserved front page linkage, so does this one.

Reggie Bush has committed lesser transgressions than Cam Newton but Newton and Auburn have not been punished.

Wow, that's a reach.  I would probably agree that Newton's transgressions are as bad as Bush's, but not that they are greater.  Also, as another poster pointed out, it took the NCAA several years to put the hammer down on USC.  That same hammer is more than likely going to hit Auburn, but they have to a) wait until the investigation is finished, and b) wait long enough that many people forget that TCU would have been playing in that MNC if Auburn wasn't there (which imho is the bigger reason Newton's suspension was lifted).
