Ducks’ football penalty put in perspective

Friday, July 5, 2013by  Jon Osterberg

While much of the Pac-12 conference bemoans the light penalty imposed June 26 by the NCAA on Oregon for its football-recruiting violations, the perspective differs in Eugene.
   Since the NCAA started formally reviewing sports violations 60 years ago, Oregon has been an infrequent offender – just three instances. Oregon State has been penalized just twice. Stanford is the only Pac-12 school with a clean record.
   The “bad boy” of the conference has been Arizona State, with nine penalties dating to 1954.
   1957 was a particularly onerous year with four schools penalized for football violations: California, UCLA, USC, and Washington. Read the Eugene Register-Guard article that details the history of NCAA penalties for each Pac-12 university.
