I hate GA Tech just as much as anyone, but stories like this are ridiculous. Having a trophy taken away from the university for $300 worth of clothes given to one player by his cousin's friend. SMH...

disagree.. that wasn't why they had the trophy taken away.. that may have been the infraction, but that wasn't why they were hit with this. the arrogance of cpj and that gt administration were their own worst enemy here. if you don't listen and follow the ncaa requests you will get hit hard period and the all know this.

I dont feel bad for them. Best way to tick a GT fan off.... tell them Colorado won the 1990 National Championship... They go crazy!!!! I mean it does say "1990 National champions" in their (Colorado) stadium right? Heck, that's good enough for this guy!

Ok, that is what the article that was linked to said. Covering up an infraction, no matter how small, always ends up being the worst decision and the penalty is worse than if admitting it in the first place.

yeah there is a lot more to it, but the article didn't go into detail since there has already been articles on what happened. basically georgia tech's administration and cpj did not listen to the ncaa's direction. they should have declared thomas ineligible after he accepted gifts from a former player who was a runner for an agent. however they ignore the ncaa's direction there and played him anyways. also the ncaa told the AD Dan Radakovich to not share information of the impending investigative interview with morgan burnette. however that information was shared beforehand. gt has themselves to blame, but to be honest they got off pretty easy overall.

why? due to the lazy atlanta media that only wants to dig dirt up on UGA, no local media member put in an open records request for georgia tech and thus this ncaa investigation didn't come out at all. so unlike other programs that have an ncaa investigation being held over their heads and having it locally or even nationally discussed there was nothing until a year and some later when the findings finally came out. the lack of speculation was a big advantage to georgia tech. the local atlanta media was trashed nationally about this.
