Due to their squeaky-clean behavior, Alabama has officially exited the "repeat offender" window due to their last brush-up with the NCAA rulebook.

From TuscaloosaNews.com:

Those sanctions, handed down by the NCAA on June 11, 2009, involved extra benefits to student-athletes in several sports due to what the NCAA found to be a failure to monitor in the school’s textbook program. UA, which had discovered and self-

reported the violations, received three years’ probation (which ended in June 2012) and was forced to vacate the result of several athletics contests, including 21 football victories from 2005 until the matter was reported in 2007.

Although no violations were found after 2007, NCAA rules impose a five-year “repeat violator window” from the effective date of sanctions which were imposed on June 11, 2009.

Good to see Alabama has learned their lesson, and no shady stuff has occurred since the Tide discovered an erroneous use of their textbook program.

"...the Tide discovered an erroneous use of their textbook program."

There's an Alabama educational joke there somewhere, but I'm going to let it go.

 

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

Such a timeless movie.

I hope our occasional digs at the Tide hasn't run Alabama Mike off?  I always enjoy his insights.

Now they can do what they want with no fear of NCAA reprisals...
