TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The NCAA has placed Alabama's football program and 15 other of the school's athletic teams on three years probation for major violations due to misuse of free textbooks.
The NCAA's Committee on Infractions said Thursday the football team must forfeit an unspecified number of wins in which any of seven players took part during 2005-2007. The university identified the seven as ``intentional wrongdoers.''
The NCAA said that 201 student-athletes in the 16 sports, including men's basketball, obtained ``impermissible benefits'' by using their scholarships to obtain free textbooks for other students. It also found the university guilty of ``failure to monitor.''
The university was ordered to pay a $43,900 fine.
