It was posted on the SCIAC basketball board along with the official NCAA posting.

The big question: Caltech finally got off the schneid in 2010-11 and won a SCIAC game in basketball (the first time in ???). Is this one of the wins that will be vacated?

That win counts.  It was in the Times article.

 :'( Say it ain't so.....Even Cal Tech violates NCAA rules...I though Cal Tech was penalized enough with NASA having budget cuts and not needing as many Cal Tech grads....

It's in our story -- the win stands. Caltech wouldn't commit to a full accounting of games when I contacted them but that win is still in the books.

As I interpret the infraction, it looks like an infraction of pharisaic proportions that can probably be addressed inside the administration.

I am sorry for the appearance that this gives Cal Tech to the causal observer who is not familiar with the nature of the law as applied by the NCAA.

They'll be forced to go back to rigging card stunts and the scoreboard at the Rose Bowl Game.

It looks like a violation that occurred not because of athletic issues, but rather because of the way students register for classes.  The NCAA doesn't like non-standard systems.

I worked for a while at a university at which athletes were allowed priority registering for classes sob that they wouldn't get closed out of the morning and early afternoon sections. They needed to end their academic day by 3 pm in order to make it to practice.

That was a very common practice at lots of schools - either that or slots were reserved for them through a "blocking" system.
