Oklahoma Sooners Proposed Penalties: Probation, Vacate 2009-10 Wins

The NCAA investigation of the Oklahoma Sooners basketball program has come to an end, with the school asking the NCAA to place the basketball team on a two-year probation and vacate all 2009-10 wins.

While former head coach Jeff Capel was not found to be involved in any wrongdoing, former assistant coach Oronde Taliaferro was found to have violated rules concerning former Sooner Tiny Gallon.

 According to reports, Gallon received a loan from a Florida financial advisor which was acknowledged by Taliaferro, who resigned from the Oklahoma staff in April 2010.

 Besides the probation and forfeiting the wins, OU has recommended the loss of one scholarship, two official visits and 10 in-person recruiting days.

Despite OU already being on probation for acts committed under the Kelvin Sampson regime, OU argued in their dispostions that these violations are not related to any they are currently under probabtion for and they should not be considered a repeat violator.

The response of the recommendations should take a few weeks.
