Having Someone Take the SAT For You Costs 38 Wins

Memphis is going to forfeit their 38 wins from the 2007-2008 season according to a report in the Memphis Commercial Appeal:

The University of Memphis is expecting the release of a report from the NCAA Committee on Infractions on Thursday in which its men’s basketball program will be forced to forfeit a record 38 victories and 2008 Final Four appearance, a source close to the situation confirmed to The Commercial Appeal on Wednesday night.

Memphis received a notice of allegations from the NCAA in January alleging major violations during the 2007-08 season under former coach John Calipari. The most serious allegation was that former Tiger point guard Derrick Rose had a stand-in take the SAT for him, thus making him retroactively ineligible. Memphis also was cited for failure to monitor its charter airplane, as investigators found $2,260 in unpaid travel expenses by Rose’s brother, Reggie Rose.

Should the NCAA force Memphis to vacate the 2007-08 season, it will mark the school’s second Final Four appearance that was ultimately stripped from the record books, joining Dana Kirk’s 1985 squad.

That’s harsh for Memphis. But as a Bulls fan it doesn’t really bother me. Should it bother me more? Or are we just numb to these types of NCAA violation stories?
