It was a good year for Georgia Tech in 2009.

Well, until 2011, when we found out that they were to be stripped of that hard-earned ACC title due to an alleged relationship between former wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and former QB Calvin Booker, who apparently worked for a sports agent, according to ESPN.

According to the "Worldwide Leader in Sports," Thomas received over $300 in sports clothing.

From the report, what the NCAA was really, really annoyed about was Georgia Tech's lack of cooperation with their investigation and decision to speak to a player about the upcoming investigation and worries about his eligibility.

And there were some basketball violations, too.

And speaking of violations, Auburn's still being investigated by the NCAA, and Oregon is making its best effort to go on the front foot about doing nothing wrong regarding paying recruiting agents.

After all, everyone does it, apparently.

How many more schools are going to end up in short yardage with the NCAA?

Where can I comment?
