THE NCAA yesterday placed Boise State on probation for 3 years and imposed other sanctions for major violations by the football program and other sports.
The sanctions included a public reprimand, a 1-year postseason ban for women's tennis and recruiting restrictions and scholarship reductions for affected sports. Some of the penalties had previously been self-imposed by the university.
Boise State's football program will be able to offer nine fewer scholarships through the 2013-14 season. That's six fewer than Boise State's self-imposed sanctions announced earlier this year. The football team will be allowed fewer contact practices during spring training for 3 years.
