The Missouri Football program has received a one-year postseason ban and scholarship reduction, along with other penalties after the NCAA announced Thursday that the university had committed academic violations with student-athletes. Per CBS Sports:
quote:

Missouri football has been hit with a postseason ban for the 2019-20 season, as well as five percent reduction in scholarships and other penalties after the NCAA ruled a former tutor at the school "violated NCAA ethical conduct, academic misconduct and academic extra benefits rules" by completing academic work for student-athletes at the school. Missouri's baseball and softball programs have been penalized as well.

As far as the findings with the football program, the tutor completed coursework for six different student-athletes at Missouri, and "completed an entire course for a football student-athlete," according to the NCAA's release. The tutor also helped two Missouri football players complete their math placement exams. The exam is a requirement, and students are supposed to take the test alone and without assistance, but the tutor remained with both players during their exams and helped them finish.

If we ranked teams by their ability to cheat, Missouri would have dropped from 39th all the way down to 102. SEC is slipping.

Alabama needs to teach a class on how to get away with this so some Mizzou faculty can attend and learn.

North Carolina gave out A's in imaginary classes; no penalty.

The "students" submitted their own homework in the garbage classes. Athletes, frats, whoever. Mizzou admitted to the staff doing all the work for their "students". That is the difference to the NCAA's eyes. Another stupid ruling given by a joke of a regulatory body.
