Alabama reacts to NCAA sanctions

The University of Alabama made a brief statement about the NCAA sanctions handed down by the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions Thursday afternoon. University of Alabama president Dr. Robert Witt stressed the cooperative efforts on the part of the University to aid the investigation. He also defended the integrity of the school’s employees.

“It is important to note that no coach or staff member was involved in the violations,” Dr. Witt said. “No sport gained a competitive advantage. And not one athlete pocked one dollar.”

Dr. Witt reassured fans the penalties only apply to the past, and will not put the football team at a “competitive disadvantage.”

Dr. Witt also said the University was committed to full compliance with NCAA rules.

Alabama Athletics Director Mal Moore echoed a similar theme, but left open the possibility of an appeal.

    Once again, the Crimson Turd proves that cheating is acceptable at the Tuscaloser institution and that NCAA sanctions will do NOTHING to change that.

    ONCE A CHEATER, ALWAYS A CHEATER.

    It will be a hoot to watch the Crimson Turd vacate victories. The Crimson Turd Nation will still claim these as “wins” using its selective logic.

    GO NCAA; DROP THE RAMMER-JAMMER HAMMER ON THE CRIMSON TURD OF ALABAMMER!!!

    The Aubbies are so witty & sportsmanlike as usual. Bama put Southern Football on the map – Bama goes down, Auburn goes down. Grow up you cowboy wannabe’s.
