Boise State, in response to a number of NCAA rule violations, has self-imposed penalties, one of which may be of some interest to us:
The Boise State University football team will have at least three fewer preseason practices as it prepares for this year’s season opener against Georgia in Atlanta.
The Broncos also will award three fewer scholarships over the course of the next two seasons and be allowed three fewer preseason practices before next year’s opener at Michigan State.
That’s the punishment the school has imposed for violating NCAA rules, according to documents obtained by the Idaho Statesman on Tuesday.
I’m not sure how much real world impact missing three practices (albeit three in pads) will have. But every little bit helps, right?
