The NCAA will announce Thursday that the Alabama football team must vacate all wins in 2005 through 2007 that included players involved in violations of textbook disbursement policy, a person with knowledge of the ruling said. That number is at least 10, another source said. Alabama will not have to give up its 2007 win over Tennessee or its bowl win that season. The penalties do not include scholarship losses for football, the sources said.

NCAA to force Alabama to vacate wins, won't require future scholarship losses for football, a source said. (Updated!) - The Rap Sheet - al.com Emphasis mine, natch, but take this with a grain of salt since the university is not allowed to discuss the ruling until the NCAA has made a formal announcement. I doubt Ian would cite a "person with knowledge of the ruling" without them actually being, you know, a person that would have knowledge of the ruling, but considering the tight seal the university has kept on this whole affair, loose lips wagging now just doesn't seem right. Fingers crossed that this is the extent of the sanctions, though, since "vacated" wins are a farce (we'll all remember who won those games) and zero scholarships lost is the best news we could possibly get. h/t brandonh
