I thought I'd check in to see what the thoughts are on the penalties we just got slapped with. Since nobody else is writing about it (well, a couple of the frontpagers are talking about it on Twitter, but not here for some reason), Aggie Football and Jimbo got their hands slapped by the Jimbo's former AD for some pretty squishy violations. Seems the Aggies practiced too much, and talked to a kid who was too young. The penalties are:
One year of probation.
A fine of $5,000.
A reduction in football official visits by 17 days during the 2019-20 academic year.
An off-campus recruiting ban for the entire football coaching staff for November 2019, which reduced the permissible evaluation days for the 2019-20 academic year by 19.
A seven-day off-campus recruiting ban for the football coaching staff for the 2020 spring off-campus recruiting period and a 10-day off-campus recruiting ban for the football coaching staff for the 2020 fall off-campus recruiting period.
The university ended its recruitment of the prospect.
A ban on recruiting any prospects from the prospect's high school for the 2019-20, 2020-21 and 2021-22 academic years.
Anyway, if you want to know more it's at Saturday Down South.
