Alabama Appeals NCAA Sanctions

Why does this matter so much to us? This is why.

The University of Alabama has filed formal notice with the NCAA to appeal the vacation of 21 football victories, as well as a tennis win and individual records in track and field, the Tuscaloosa News and Mobile Press-Register are reporting. Both papers say that the appeal will not includ the three-year probation or the fine of $43,900 handed down by the NCAA after finding the university guilty of failure to monitor its textbook distribution program to scholarship athletes.
