South Carolina admitted to too much icing on cookies and other NCAA violations

Steve Spurrier

South Carolina self-reported a total of 22 secondary violations ot the NCAA over the last year, seven of which stemmed from the football program. The football program was the only athletic program at South Carolina to be involved in multiple secondary offenses according to information obtained by the Associated Press through an open-records request. It would seem there is little reason for Steve Spurrier to be concerned about the overall impact of the violations moving forward.

The violations range from impermissible text messages sent by assistant coaches to putting trophies and uniforms on display on a table to cookies having too much icing on them. The NCAA, ladies and gentlemen.

Some of the other violations reported by the Gamecocks include a recruit attending a spring practice and taking a picture with a former South Carolina player currently in the NFL, although the names of both involved in this specific violation have not been disclosed. Another recruiting violation was reported to have been committed when a recruit took a picture while wearing a non-personalized South Carolina football uniform and shared the photo on multiple social networks.

Do not expect these violations to add up to much of anything but a slight slap on the wrist for South Carolina, at the most. Secondary offenses rarely result in much discipline from the NCAA other than having it go on the record.

    I hope the “too much icing on the cookies” was $100 bills.

    this is why the NCAA is a joke. i mean seriously. i dont blame the Big 5 Conferences for wanting to break off. all the NCAA needs to do is use common sense. however most people dont have it anymore.

    i could see, however, that the Big 5 could turn it into Olympic like scandals.

    there has to be a happy medium. pay the players extra than their scholarships but rules like the abive need to be abolished.

    When I read the headline, I swear I thought the Old Ball Coach lost it and decided to troll the living hell out of the NCAA.

    I was reeeeallllllly hoping to read that Spurrier called them and reported a whole bunch of nonsense like the excess cookie icing just to completely f%&k with Emmert and Co. You know, a whole list of stuff like “We gave a recruit directions to a parking garage” and “We told a recruit’s dad about an all-you-can eat buffet at a local restaurant when they asked about one.” A HUGE passive/aggressive chain yank like that would be awesome and hilarious.

    Gasp. Too much icing on cookies !! There is a crime worth a few seasons of the death penalty in and if itself.

    The bigger crime would be that the NCAA apparently pays someone to police icing on cookies. Where can I apply for that job? I am going to Kroger and then spend the rest of my evening on my couch practicing for my new career.

    By all means, criticize the NCAA for being impotent, and then criticise the NCAA for wanting schools to be accountable.

    Makes alot of sense.

    The NCAA should go back down there. SC and the Old Ball Coach are not telling all.
