    LUBBOCK, Texas -- The NCAA is accusing Texas Tech of major rules violations tied to nearly 1,000 impermissible text messages sent to football, softball and golf prospects.

    The NCAA released its findings Friday. It said the school discovered the violations and reported them to the NCAA.

    Penalties could include two years' probation, recruiting restrictions and scholarship reductions.

    The NCAA says the football violations occurred between August 2007 and February 2009, which would have come under former coach Mike Leach. The NCAA says the football coaching staff sent approximately 234 text messages to 45 prospective student-athletes.

    So amazingly, that leaves more then 3/4 of the violations outside the football program. That means softball and golf broke more rules than football? :rofl:

    It sure seems that if you are not in the SEC or BIG 10 you will get probation for any violation. i dont see how text messages are worse than offering 180,000 dollars to a kid.

    Remember our training table violation? This is similar.

    TTU already took their scholarship reductions.

    I think this is more similar to the **** Slick Rick used to pull while he was here. The same type of stuff Kelvin Sampson used to pull, not minor at all.

    I think every program in america breaks NCAA violations one way or another. I think the best way to crack down on it is to do random investigations. That still wont really stop it though.

    This isn't minor at all and not even close the the training table thing. This is similar to what Sampson was doing. Plus, it seems to be institutional wide. Not just football.
