Video: GT Responds To Getting Wrecked By NCAA

Today the NCAA ripped a hole in the hull of the good ship Ramblin’ Wreck.

Above is video of Georgia Tech President Bud Peterson and Athletic Director Dan Radakovich addressing the school being hit with the following NCAA sanctions today:

  • Fined $100,000 by the NCAA
  • Stripped of its 2009 ACC championship in football (Tech must return ACC trophy. There will be no champion for the season)
  • Four years of probation from July 14, 2011 through July 13, 2015
  • Reduction of two men’s basketball recruiting days during the 2011 summer evaluation period (self-imposed by the university)
  • Limit of 10 official visits for men’s basketball for the 2011-12 and 2012-13 academic years
  • Vacation of all games won by the football team during the 2009 season after November 24

In its infractions report (PDF), the NCAA Committee on Infractions flatly states that Tech was directly involved in attempting to hinder the NCAA’s investigation and, “manipulate the information surrounding potential violations involving (the student-athlete) so there would be enough doubt about its validity to justify the decision not to declare him ineligible.
