I'll save the analysis for later, but two quotes will be sure to get roars from the Maize and Blue faithful:
While the University takes the violations very seriously, the actual violations are a far cry from the initial claims in the media.
[...] the University is satisfied that the initial media reports were greatly exaggerated if not flatly incorrect.
Proposed self-imposed sanctions include:
- The University has reduced Quality Control staff positions by 40% and prohibited them from attending practices, games, and coaches meetings for the remainder of 2010
- Reductions in training and practice time on a 2:1 basis, resulting in a loss of approximately 130 hours over the next two years (for 65 hours of total violations)
Dave Brandon did a fantastic job with all of this, as predicted. If there were any doubts about his hire I fail to see how they could remain after how he has dealt with this fiasco. Also, bravo for the University blasting, and believe me in this type of document what they did was BLAST, the Freep and its hack staff. Bravo indeed.
Much more to come on this later.
