Alabama self-reports 13 secondary NCAA violations


"No names of student-athletes or coaches were contained in the report, but a violation that resulted in a football player being declared ineligible for one game after being over-awarded scholarship money due to a computer entry error referred to linebacker Trey DePriest. He repaid the money and was reinstated."

"Another violation involved early-enrollee running back DeSherrius Flowers, who received financial aid and practiced in the spring but was determined to be a non-qualifier "after a change in circumstance" related to his college entrance exam. Flowers' scholarship was cancelled and he will not be enrolled to play this fall."

Nothing major here, but newsworthy nonetheless. Flowers was reportedly declared ineligible due to a suspiciously significant improvement in his ACT scores. This creates a secondary violation since he was receiving financial aid as a non-qualifier. We also now know why we were without Trey for the WVU game. Thanks, NCAA.
