Pushing Buttons: Alabama Releases List Of Violations

It's cliche, but no one is truly perfect. The University of Alabama has released a document listing over 20 violations that occurred during the 2013-14 athletic seasons. The punishments were swiftly handed out. The women's basketball team has lost a scholarship for the 2014-15 season for offering a "a mid-year grant-in-aid" to a team member.

Football, track and field, and swimming all violated four rules. Gymnastics followed suit violating at least three rules, while golf and men's and women's basketball violated two rules each. The baseball and rowing programs each violated one rule.

The violations are classified as Level III and IV, or secondary violations. One of the more notable and covered violations was the story surrounding NFL rookie Ha-Ha Clinton Dix. Dix received a loan from a member of the coaching staff, which resulted in the safety missing two games.

Swimming and diving coach Dennis Pursley will be also serve a suspension for loaning money to student athletes. The swimming and diving program also received heat for surpassing the allowed practice time limits. For this, Pursley and his staff must refrain from recruiting for two weeks.

The majority of the other violations are minor and not worth noting. Sometimes the simplest of gestures can result in a violation of NCAA sanctioned rules. There's a fine line that coaches and players cannot cross. Some say these policies are ludicrous, however this is nothing new. The NCAA as a whole has been a backwards organization laden with contradictions. Alabama fans should not be discouraged. No major violations were cited.
