    Release: ISU Enters into Summary Disposition Process

    AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State University Athletics Department announced today that it has entered into a summary disposition process with the NCAA stemming from inadvertent and impermissible telephone and text messages made by members of its coaching staff from 2008 to 2011. The department discovered and self-reported the violations to the NCAA over 18 months ago in November of 2011.

    “Our institution is fully committed to strict compliance with all rules and regulations of the NCAA,” Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said. “We have worked hard to maintain a culture of integrity by hiring quality staff and reinforcing moral and ethical conduct at all times. That is why we immediately reported these inadvertent violations to the NCAA in the fall of 2011.”

    The department reviewed three years worth of telephone and text message activity for every member of its coaching staff in all 18 of its sports. The exhaustive review —broader than any known review by a NCAA member institution — included examination of more than 2,500 individual monthly telephone bills. The institution discovered, out of approximately 750,000 total calls made by its coaches during the three-year period, 55 impermissible phone calls were placed by non-coaching staff members and 24 phone calls were made by coaching staff members at impermissible times.

    The institution also discovered that many of its coaches had failed to properly document 1,405 calls in which a coach attempted to make a call but failed to connect with a prospect (e.g., dropped calls, lack of an answer or voice mail). The failure to properly log all telephone calls resulted in further NCAA violations.

    The department’s self-imposed sanctions for these violations, which were already served by its coaches during the 2011-12 academic year, included a reduction in the number of coaches on the road recruiting and the number of times coaches could place calls during a four-month period, as well as requiring all coaches to attend a compliance education session on telephone and text messaging. In addition, the department has recommended to the NCAA that Iowa State University be placed on two years probation.

    “We are hopeful the NCAA will recognize our sincere effort to adhere to NCAA rules and will accept our self-imposed sanctions,” Pollard said. “We are definitely a stronger organization as a result of what we learned about our internal monitoring system and we look forward to resolving these self-reported violations in a timely manner.”

    The University will have no further comment on this matter until the case is completely resolved with the NCAA.

    Knowing the NCAA and ISU's relationship, I fully expect death penalty.

    What does probation mean? As long as we don't screw up any more we'd be ok?

    Are they required to send out a release. If not, I wouldn't have. This is nothing.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Re: Release: ISU Enters into Summary Disposition Process

    I don't find it hard to log every phone call that I make and receive. I average 1 in a busy month.

    Truly shocking and appalling. Or something.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I bet the NCAA puts the hammer down on us, just because.

    You don't send it out, and you look like you are sweeping it under the rug.

    Re: Release: ISU Enters into Summary Disposition Process

    They gave Caltech a year postseason ban for letting athletes register for class like the rest of their students. Granted at most it might have affected one fencer or something, but harsh compared to the Penn States and Ohio States. NCAA likes to squash the little guys so I guess we have to hope they don't consider us a little guy.

    Blown calls >>> Phone Calls.

    All we got was a sorry. Maybe we say we are really sorry and all is forgiven.

    This might help everybody understand this situation a little better.
