UGA reports nine secondary violations

Georgia has self-reported nine secondary violations of NCAA rules this year — a list of transgressions that provides a glimpse into the minutiae of the NCAA rulebook.

The violations, revealed in response to an open-records request by the AJC, cover a range of sports — a football coach returning a call to a high school junior, basketball recruits sitting in the wrong seats in Stegeman Coliseum, a track-and-field recruit being reimbursed an extra 5 cents per mile.

All crossed the line of NCAA bylaws.

Schools routinely self-report secondary violations to the NCAA, which defines them as inadvertent missteps that don’t create a significant competitive advantage. Georgia’s nine violations since Jan. 1 are a typical number for that time period; UGA reported 10 in the final six months of last year.

“Not to make any excuses, but the NCAA manual is over 400 pages thick, with other interpretations out there too,” said Eric Baumgartner, Georgia’s assistant athletics director for compliance. “I think sometimes it does get bogged down into the minutiae, but certainly on some of [the violations] I think they are preventable.”

Baungartner said all of the violations reported this year came to light internally, usually because coaches called them to the compliance department’s attention..

“It’s a great process we have,” Baumgartner said, “in that coaches are comfortable enough to say, ‘Hey, I made a mistake; I’m letting you know.’”

Georgia’s nine violations, only one involving the football program, provide a primer on the intricacies of NCAA rules:

• A football coach, not identified in the documents, returned a missed telephone call to an unfamiliar number that turned out to be the cellphone of a recruit who was a junior in high school. That violated NCAA rules because it was before the permissible time period for calling juniors. The case has not been resolved.
• A men’s basketball coach participated in a TV interview while a recruit’s game played in the background. The case was resolved with “rules education” for the coach.
• Women’s basketball recruits on an unofficial visit were provided seats “outside the general seating area” of Stegeman Coliseum by a parent of a current player. NCAA rules allow prospects to sit in the general seating area but not in premium seats. Resolution: rules education.
• The baseball team had 36 players receive financial aid or participate in a game — one above the limit. The case remains open, but Baumgartner said a typical penalty would be to have the number of permitted players reduced by two next season (to 33).
• A track coach replied to a text message from a prospect, breaking the rule against sending texts to recruits. It would have been OK to reply if the message had been an e-mail. The case remains open.
• A visiting track recruit was reimbursed for mileage at last year’s rate of 55 cents per mile instead of this year’s rate of 50 cents. Resolution: The difference — about $7, Baumgartner said — was returned to UGA and donated to charity. • A women’s tennis coach publicly commented on a walk-on player before she was admitted to UGA. Resolution: rules education. • A men’s tennis coach watched a recruit “participate in recreational activities” during an official visit to campus. The case is pending. • A member of the equestrian team participated in a competition before completing the repayment of prize money she had won. Baumgartner said student-athletes sometimes agree to repayment plans to gain NCAA eligibility and that in this instance one payment remained. The case is pending. 202 comments Add your comment Eisendawg June 11th, 2010 8:27 am I’m not gonna say it richtfan June 11th, 2010 8:28 am this very garbage is why the NCAA needs to be put out of business from “regulating” colleges so much. to have a 400 page rulebook to begin with is absurd. 1eyedJack June 11th, 2010 8:29 am Nothing really to comment on, but I guess as soon as the Techies get up and about we’ll hear how we are cheating. Eisendawg June 11th, 2010 8:31 am Wonder if ol Lame Kiffin still considers it his “dream” job? BuLLdawg June 11th, 2010 8:31 am If NCAA rules applied to everyday people, 100% of the population would be in jail. Heck, I’d be on death row OEJ June 11th, 2010 8:32 am this is news why…I guess he wants Tech fans to start talking **** about what seems to be nothing to me. tar and feathers party June 11th, 2010 8:34 am What about all those Chevy el Dorado’s being driven by players? All the free meals in fancy places? All the expensive clothes and shoes? Where is the ghost of Jan Kemp when we need her? Oh, all minor violations? SEC fan June 11th, 2010 8:34 am This and yet UT has HoestessGate and the NCAA doesn’t even issue a secondary violation? What gives? NCAA enforcement is a real head scratcher. Billy June 11th, 2010 8:36 am Whether or not the NCAA and its “400 page rule book” is absurd is another topic to discuss. Rules are in place for a reason and we must follow these rules. Glen Ulrici June 11th, 2010 8:36 am No problem, nicely done- Steve June 11th, 2010 8:37 am This is the exact reason that secondary rules violations should not even be reported in the media. These are beyond absurd and the average BCS conference school averaged close to 11 last year according to NCAA stats. The average FBS (D1a) schools averaged just over 13, which tells me the big schools are actually controlling these little rules better than the small ones. To only have 9 of these is better than the average peer school. I wish the AJC would post the list of schools and their number of secondary violations just to show that UGA is actually below the norm. GT Fan June 11th, 2010 8:38 am LOL and you UGA fans thought your program was clean lol I know it was to good to be true. Go Jackets! Natalie June 11th, 2010 8:39 am Cheating in Athens. This shouldn’t surprise anyone. Bulldog59 June 11th, 2010 8:41 am Steve, well said. SOOHSO June 11th, 2010 8:42 am No comment. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Marzha June 11th, 2010 8:42 am This is just the tip of the iceberg for UGA, where cheating is a way of life. Sickening. The public would go apesh*t if they knew about all the crap that goes on at UGA. Remarkable June 11th, 2010 8:43 am Some of these infractions are understandable, but some are down right lame. A football coach returning a missed call to an unknown number is a violation? You can return an e-mail but not a text? Coaches can’t coment on players untill they are actually taking classes? Come on, give me a break. Ogre June 11th, 2010 8:44 am Glad to see Tech fans are still upset that UGA owns them. Joran van Der Sloot June 11th, 2010 8:44 am Those NCAA commissioners better hope I never catch them going through my laptop trying to look up info on me…….we all know the penalty for that. I am in jail in Peru and even I know that UGA sucks. RxDawg June 11th, 2010 8:45 am I’m thinking of something to say and……I got nothing. Remarkable June 11th, 2010 8:45 am Get real GT Fan. GT Coaches probally don’t make mistakes like returning phone calls. Oh yeah, GT Fan... June 11th, 2010 8:46 am …these are really major rule breakers…”if it had been an email instead of a text it would have been OK” – are you freakin’ kidding me??????? blord June 11th, 2010 8:47 am Not to worry St. Mark will raise his hand and everything will be cured. Ugay tells on itself on these minor violations so the NCAA won’t investigate the major ones that Gardner and his crew do everyday. George P Burdell June 11th, 2010 8:47 am As a “Techie”, I do not think this was cheating or even newsworthy. As Dan Radakovich has said, if a school has no secondary violations to report, then the school’s compliance people are not doing their job. Nor do I think think this is “NCAA garbage”. The NCAA has to rely on strong compliance programs within each school. Self reporting of violations is the best way to see if a school is doing its job of policing itself. Otherwise, competitive coaches will find ways to bend or break rules. Sucks to be Lane Kiffin June 11th, 2010 8:47 am Georgia cheats AND still cant win… BG June 11th, 2010 8:48 am WOW, This makes the news!!!! BG June 11th, 2010 8:50 am Blord it’s Garner you homo. Russ, the Temporary Mascot June 11th, 2010 8:50 am Add to that the painting of a little dog’s a$$when all the little dog was trying to do was be the best possible mascot. That has to be a violation of NCAA rules. I feel violated. Big Dude June 11th, 2010 8:51 am Where to start…OK, the NCAA is pathetic. The fact that collehe sports ( football) garners millions of dollars per season and that the NCAA penalizes the very students who make this revenue flow..lets call these actions what they really are…criminal. So you want to penalize these kids who are doing their job, while the boosters, agents and pro teams are ’scouting’ them with perks..? these are kids!!! Punish the tempters.. not the tempted! Talk about backasswards…! Fillin' Up @ Juniors June 11th, 2010 8:52 am I am sure Tech has just as many of these minor infractions as does UGA…There is a big difference between this kind of stuff and what USC got caught doing yesterday…I take it that the three people who responded so far with “UGA Cheats” didn’t actually read the article. As a Tech fan it would be great for us if UGA actually got caught cheating, but something tells me that is not Richt’s style… Natalies husband June 11th, 2010 8:55 am Natalie! What did I tell you about posting on this blog. Now get back to making me breakfast in the kitchen, where you belong! mgdawg June 11th, 2010 8:58 am I’m a UGA fan, but the baseball one was just dumb, the coach was trying to get away with it and figured out that he couldn’t. The track and field one where the coach received the text and responded was dumb, that rule is straightforward. All the other stuff is petty; however, the baseball and track and field coach need to shape up. gdawginkalamazoo June 11th, 2010 9:00 am I can definitely see where there was no competitive advantage for the baseball team’s infraction. The equestrian error may strip them of the title. I guess we will see in about four years which is the average length of an NCAA investigation. Of course the rider involved would have by then won the Kentucky Derby and the World Championship Rodeo. Only to have it tarnished by the$25 won at the Calhoun County Fair barrel race.

Such is the difference between programs trying to do it the right way (UGA) and programs who could care less (USC). It is all about the leadership. Considering we are talking not about old people talking smack about college sports but the 18 to 22 year old students and young people involved in UGA athletics, it makes me proud to be a Dawg. (Nice job to the AJC of not hyping this stupid list up and making it sound like UGA was doing anything unethical.)

A lot of schools have in the vicinity of 50-60 per school year, some a lot higher (see OSU), they are in the hundreds. Soooo, 9 violations is very good according to the standard.

Their is no cheating in the state of Ga, if there is, we will just send CPJ to punch them in the face. Cya

Football: A coach, not identified in the documents, returned a missed telephone call to an unfamiliar number that turned out to be the cell phone of a recruit who was a junior in high school. That violated NCAA rules because it was before the permissible time period for calling juniors. The case has not been resolved.

Sounds to me like coaches need a separate phone where you just give that telephone number to recruits and put in all the phone numbers of recruits with caller ID otherwise how can you keep up calling back people who just leave you a phone number to call them back. This is just insane.

Per GT’s accounting of NC’s.

•1980 (12-0-0) – Vince Dooley coached the Bulldogs to a perfect 12-0 season, including a 17-10 victory over Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl to win the National Championship. Georgia finished as the only team with no losses and no ties and was declared No. 1 by almost every poll.

——————————————————————————–

Other National Championships
•1968 (8-1-2) – Litkenhous
•1966 (10-1-0) – Massey Ratings
•1946 (11-0-0) – Williamson System
•1942 (11-1-0) – Berryman; DeVold; Houlgate System; Litkenhous; Poling System; Williamson System.

Tucker, if you must write such BS, include info on other schools meaningless dirt.

Yet Saban had triple that amount his first year and I think even Richt had 20 one year? It’s just funny how media controls how these secondaries leak out.

ToccoaDawg, not sure about Techs secondary violations, but they do have a player, B back Daniel Drummond whom is ineligble for 1st 10 games this year, due to violation of eligibility rules. They had some pretty serious stuff in 2004. See below:

September 4, 2004
Georgia Tech reports violations
An internal audit has uncovered that 17 Georgia Tech athletes, from four different sports, were certified as academically eligible, even though they had not completed their elibility requirements. The violations occurred over the last five years.

AD Dave Braine said Georgia Tech self-reported the violations to the NCAA and that the university considers this a secondary violation. Georgia Tech Sports Blog reports that the university proposes the following sanctions:

■Forfeit four football scholarships per year for the next two years.
■Forfeit 3.9 men’s track scholarships for the next two years. (Track scholarships, unlike football and basketball scholarships, can be split among multiple athletes.)
■Forfeit 3.5 women’s track scholarships for the next two years.
■Pay a \$5,000 fine.
■Issue letters of reprimand to the staff involved

Oh what a tangled webb we weave, when first we try to deceive.

CMR –

UGA should adopt a similar “Violations Policy” with reporters.

If a reporter prints a controversial headline such as this that is absolutly meaningless, or without getting a statement from the coaching staff prior to printing the article, that reporter is banned from appearing in the UGA press confrences and is not granted interviews with any school official for the upcomming season. This might help produce some reporters for our local papers who are supportive of our local institutions VS those who write about nothing to get hits and sell adds. Tucker – Bannded for 2010

Expect UGA to take more short cuts, l know their football program is desperate to win and I think they see their window of opportunity is closing very quickly now that there is talk about the SEC maybe bringing in some new teams to the SEC.Depending on which teams come to the SEC UGA could be pushed back down to the middle of the pack, keep your eyes on this the writing is on the wall.

“Not to make any excuses, but the NCAA manual is over 400 pages thick…”

The reason the manual is over 400 pages thick is coaches and schools cheat. If coaches and schools stop cheating the rules manual becomes meaningless stack of paper. But remember, every single rule is in the book because some coach or school cheated.

And we all know that the coaches and schools will not stop cheating.

GA Tech Lies & Cheats & Everyone knows it! Everyone! GA Tech and Tennessee are the two biggest outlaw schools in the country. GA Tech should clean up their act or get kicked out of the NCAA. GA Tech fans are complete idiots for supporting a lying/cheating program like Tech has. Maybe this explains why Tech fans are so ugly and are social rejects. LOL!

Here is the real story

June 11th, 2010
11:04 am

To Gator Fans: Florida is a fine school, Georgia is fine school. As a graduate of both, they’re virtually identical in terms of program offering and academic rigor, (Med school in Augusta aside).

But I will say this, you don’t “own” anybody that you have a losing record to no matter how successful you have been recently.

Now………..to you poor Tech fans:

Georgia has a winning record verses Georgia Tech in everys single sport, men’s and women’s, that the two compete with the exception of Men’s Basketball.

Georgia leads the series in football with Tech 60-37-4. Even in Georgia Tech’s hayday, they never led the series by more than 4 games. When they left the SEC, contrary to Tech’s delusions, they had a losing record to UGA.

Georgia has more wins, bowl appearances, bowl wins, all americans, heisman trophy winners, players in the pros, starters in the pros, MVP’s, super bowl champions, current players in the pros, etc than Tech

The NCAA doesn’t award a National Championship, they never have. But according to apples to apples NC claims. UGA has one Unanimous National Champion in 1980, Tech has never been a unanimous National Champion. UGA has two Consensus (Greater than 50% of polls), Tech has never been Consensus National Champion, UGA has been AP National Champion once, Tech has never been AP National Champion. UGA has been named National Champion by a recognized poll 6 Times, Tech has been recognized only 4 times.

Georgia graduates concieved, funded, founded, & chartered the Georgia Institute of Technology. It’s an inexscapable fact. Classes were being held in Athens 100 years before the first brick was laid at the intersection of two dirt roads (North Ave & 10th).

When you are so totally and completely overshadowed, it tends to occupy your thoughts. I submit the entire existance of the North Avenue Trade School and this blog as evidence.

By Chris Low

One of the best ways to evaluate a coach is to look at his record against nationally ranked teams.

Coaches in the SEC against what was on game day Top 25 foes at their current schools

Here’s a complete rundown:

Urban Meyer, Florida — 19-6 (.760)
Nick Saban, Alabama — 11-5 (.688)
Houston Nutt, Ole Miss — 5-3 (.625)
Les Miles, LSU — 18-11 (.621)
Mark Richt, Georgia — 29-19 (.604)

Of course, the real measure is what the Coaches Records in Fact Actually are against Top 25 Teams in the Final AP Poll.

And, what their records in Fact Actually are against Top 10 Final AP Poll Teams.

Not what they were ranked on game day.

But, if Chris Low wants to point out today that we are the # 5 in The SEC against ranked opponents in either the AP Poll, or the USA Today Coaches’ Poll of which the ESPN is no longer involved with, on Game Day, then that is all he has ever talked about in the first place.

Let’s look at some examples, please Chris Low, sir.

Georgia tek in 2006 was ranked # 16 on Game Day, so that counts as 1 of your Coach Richt 29 wins versus Top 25 Ranked Teams on Game Day in one Poll or another, which is what you correctly report sir.

Georgia tek in 2006 lost 4 of its last 5 games beating only a sorry 7-6 ACC has been team at Grant Field by 1 touchdown. Therefore losing 4 of its last 5 games, including their loss in the bowl game, Georgia tek is NOT RANKED 2006.

Perhaps you would like to provide us all Chris Low where the Top 25 Poll for 2006 show that Georgia tek is RANKED in the Final AP Poll Top 25, sir ?

That is not a win over a ranked opponent.

BuLLdawg

June 12th, 2010
6:13 am

There are in fact, 12 such “wins over Top 25 teams on Game Day in either of the polls” where the team actually is NOT A TOP 25 RANKED TEAM in the Final AP Poll Top 25 and therefore do not count as a win over an in fact Top 25 team that season.

Chris Low, it is so easy to just click on the AP Poll and quit with the USA Today Coaches’ Poll which ESPN no longer is involved with in the first place any longer because it is a hoax, and measure the same coaches’ games those years against it and see that Coach Richt is 17-19 vs Top 25 Final AP Poll teams and 3-8 vs Top 10 Final AP Poll teams with no win in any bowl game over a Top 10 Final AP Poll team, sir.

Another of the 12 “wins over Top 25 teams on Game Day in either of the polls” is Boise State in 2005, whom DJ Shockley beat by running for 2 Touchdowns himself and throwing for another 4 ‘Tween The Hedges. By the time we cleared the bench, the dust settled on a 48-13 shellacking. It might as well have been Western Kentucky, not a Top 25 team as you incorrectly report Chris Low, sir.

Boise State in 2005 was ranked # 18 on Game Day in either of the polls. Do you know why they are not a ranked team in the Top 25 Final AP Poll in 2005 Chris Low besides the blistering roasting by DJ Shockley ? A lousy 8-5 WAC team beat them 27-7. A losing record 5-6 no bowl game team beat Boise State in 2005 as well And, a has-been hapless ACC team beat Boise State in addition in the MPC Computers Bowl on December 28 just after Christmas in Boise Idaho on the blue carpet. THIS IS NOT A TOP 25 Final AP Poll team, now is it Chris Low, sir ?

I’ll give you another example. Tennessee lost 5 SEC games alone in 2005 and clearly is not a Top 25 Final AP Poll team, then. However, on Game Day – early in the Season – Tennessee vols are ranked # 8. Hell South Carolina, 7-5 beat the vols in 2005 and Vanderbilt 5-6 no bowl game even both beat the vols at Neyland Stadium in 2005. Don’t give me this crap that Coach Richt beat 29 Top 25 teams, when in fact he is 17-19 vs Top 25 Final AP Poll teams. And 3-8 vs Top 10 Final AP Poll teams, none in any bowl game.

But, it is interesting to note that Coach Richt is # 5 in The SEC against teams ranked in either the AP Poll or the Coaches’ Poll on Game Day. We also are # 4 vs SEC teams the last 4 years and # 3 vs SEC East teams the last 4 years, so # 5 in The SEC against teams ranked in either the AP Poll or the Coaches’ Poll on Game Day does NOT surprise me.

Southern California gave up wins starting December 2004 in which they, not Auburn, beat Oklahoma and all of 2005 when they of course Lost to Texas.

Southern California remains 31 games ahead of UGA Bulldogs in All-Time Football wins in 10th place.

Southern California back 36 years has not won the National Championship in Football, when UGA did in 1980 Consensus 30 years ago, making UGA better.

I’d also like to wish Christian LeMay Happy 18th Birthday in Athens today with his brothers for Football Camp. He remains the 1 recruit on Offense, none in this state last year 2010 or next year 2011, if indeed his commitment with all the outs, is a commitment to Mike Bobo by name.

Mike Bobo, the same coach responsible for recruiting Christian LeMay, Zach Mettenberger, and Montez Robinson to name the most recent 3 to run afoul of The University of Georgia itself.

Admissions Department is already weighing in on the matter, as they did for example Jamar Chaney and Michael Grant. Now, we have this hanging over our heads between now and this time next year – and, he yet another Top 10 at his Position Recruit that we can butt heads between the football staff and The University itself.

So, Happy Birthday Christian LeMay. Big 18 years old. You will fit right in here, son with all the other Mike Bobo recruited players.

Michael Grant.
Christian LeMay.

These 2 cases are both the same, reportedly.

I think we should ask Mr. LeMay to not show up today in Athens, or his brothers, until his mom and dad want to be truthful about this young lady on school grounds, all of which should be out by Monday. We went a month there without this kind of news since the last of 3 football players were kicked off team, 2 of them for incidents with young ladies, both Top 10 Players at their Positions.

Oh, joy. Michael Grant and Christian LeMay, both the same.

UGA has 6 national championships, ranked # 1 by the exact same very polls that Georgia tek has 6

according to The Official NCAA Football Records Book on my desk.

I will however point out 1 difference, UGA has a national championship according to the Final AP Poll.

Georgia tek does not have ANY national championship according to the Final AP Poll ANY year, ever.

Also, if you go back and look at the teams’ rosters of some of these “Georgia tek national championships” they were during WAR YEARS and Georgia tek played players who IN FACT are in the College Football HALL OF FAME with SOME OTHER COLLEGE LISTED BY THEIR NAMES, not Georgia tek.

You cheated. You played players who were NOT STUDENTS at Georgia tek. You played players who actually were the best players in the nation at OTHER COLLEGES, not Georgia tek.

And, NO AP Poll national championship.

0.

Georgia tek DOES HAVE however 7 seasons in which Georgia tek won ZERO (0) games.

Georgia tek DOES ALSO HAVE 5 more seasons in which Georgia tek won only ONE (1) game all season long.

4 to 1.

What a load of hogwash. Look at what polls ranked Georgia tek # 1.

Look at the same polls and find Georgia listed SIX (6) Times.

The gtu player Drummond was given a NCAA mandatory 12-month suspension for STEROID USE. Just what I’d expect from a cheating program like gtu!

Well, the NCAA needs to focus a lil more on some of those SEC schools that have MAJOR recruiting violations. I am a big Georgia fan, and I can honestly say they run the cleanest program that I know of. Their student-athletes also go to class and make their grades or they are gone. I live in Louisville, KY and its a shame what goes on in this state regarding recruits, etc. Go Dawgs!!!!!
