NCAA Comes Down Hard On Sooners

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - University of Oklahoma President David Boren says today that the school will appeal an NCAA infractions committee's ruling that would erase eight wins from the football team's 2005 record.

The NCAA ruled that Oklahoma would be stripped of its eight wins that season as part of sanctions over pay some football players - including quarterback Rhett Bomar - received for work they didn't do at a Norman auto dealership.

The NCAA found O.U. failed to monitor the players and also ordered the Sooners to give up two scholarships in both the 2008 and 2009 seasons.

The NCAA also added two years probation on O.U. and says part of the reason for the stiff penalties is because O.U. failed to monitor the men's basketball staff over telephone contacts only one year before the latest incident.

Boren says the athletic department's compliance staff could not have prevented what he called "intentional wrongdoing" by the players and employer involved in the scheme. Boren also called the removal of the wins unfair to the other players who competed in the games.

The NCAA accepted O.U.'s self-imposed sanctions of kicking Bomar, offensive lineman J.D. Quinn and another player off the team. Also accepted is O.U.'s reduction in the number of coaches who can recruit off campus and the university prohibiting players from working at the dealership until 20-11.

Bomar and Quinn each lost a season of eligibility and have transferred. Bomar is now at Sam Houston State and Quinn is at Montana.
