Alabama Placed on Probation; Must Vacate 21 Football Wins

The NCAA put Alabama on three years' probation Thursday for major violations in 16 sports, including football which must vacate 21 victories.
The violations include impermissible benefits obtained by 201 athletes through misuse of free textbooks.

Alabama identified 22, including seven football players, as "intentional wrongdoers" who knew they were receiving improper benefits.

The vacated football wins were from 2005 to 2007 in which those seven played.

The victories were vacated, meaning the school may not acknowledge a win. Vacating a win is different from forfeiture, in which the loser claims the victory, according to The Birmingham News.

That makes 2007, a difficult year for Alabama to begin with, even worse.† They were 2-6 with the vacated wins.

Maybe "abam is planning on more sanctions and that's why it's scheduling San Jose State ($900,000?) and Georgia State (which doesn't even have a football team yet!) rather than in-state school, Troy.

Poor scared elephants.

Did I mention that Auburn just scheduled Jax State?
