Michael L. Buckner Quoted in Omaha World-Herald on Nebraska Self-Report to NCAA

Michael L. Buckner was quoted in a July 6, 2011, article in the Omaha
World-Herald
concerning the self-report filed by the University of Nebraska to
the NCAA enforcement staff. The institution’s self-report pertains to “violations
occurred over several years when a large number of Husker student-athletes
inadvertently received ‘recommended’ textbooks from the university bookstore
when only ‘required’ supplies were covered in their scholarship money”.  According to the article, “the total value of the non-required textbooks provided to student-athletes from spring 2007 through fall 2010 was $27,869.47, with the average amount less than $60 per individual”. The institution self-imposed a two-year probationary period and a fine of $28,000 that will go to charity.
