NCAA Committee on Infractions Releases Decision in University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Enforcement Case

On February 1, 2012, the NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions released its decision in the enforcement case involving the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. The committee determined the institution committed major violations of NCAA legislation, including a failure to monitor. However, the committee found the violations were narrow in scope and centered on student-athletes in all sports receiving impermissible benefits for multiple academic years. The committee imposed (and/or adopted) a two year probation and a $38,000 fine (which was donated to local charities). This case was resolved through the summary disposition process, which is described by the NCAA as “a cooperative effort where the involved parties collectively submit the case to the Committee on Infractions in written form. The NCAA enforcement staff, university and involved individuals must agree to the facts of the case in order for this process to be utilized instead of having a formal hearing.”
