Gael's NCAA issues

+

Not much has been said since news broke SMC was under investigation for Auzzie recruiting violations. The below blurb surfaced on ESPN this morning. Looks like a decision is coming soon. I'm kinda split on this. Part of me want them to suffer, but the other side of me doesn't want a black eye on the WCC. Saint Mary's should hear soon the results of the Gaels' NCAA committee on infractions hearing, which occurred in mid-December, according to a source with knowledge of the COI. The Gaels had two consecutive Saturdays off -- Dec. 8 and 15 -- and were on the schedule for the regular COI hearing. The two-year investigation dealt with recruiting and extra benefit issues for the Australian players that have flooded the Gaels' program. NCAA spokesperson Stacey Osburn refused to add any more information, saying the NCAA won't comment on current, pending or potential cases. Osburn said the reason the NCAA commented on the Miami case, which is still pending, is because it dealt with NCAA/enforcement staff actions. The outcome of the Gaels' case will be interesting for head coach Randy Bennett, who could be a candidate for the vacant USC job. Bennett and Saint Mary's athletic director Mark Orr did not return inquiries for response throughout the summer and fall on this case.
