Spurrier Saves SC..

Despite an alarming number of violations committed by the University of South Carolina over the last five years, the NCAA went easy on the Gamecocks by just adding a year of probation [Wire].

It's hard to make a guess why the NCAA decided to take it easy on the repeat offenders, but I believe the hiring of the ol' ball coach had something to do with it.

The full violations are:

1. - A three-year period of probation.
2. - A reduction from 56 to 50 expense-paid campus visits by recruits in 2005-06 and 2006-07.
3. - A loss of two scholarships a year for 2006-07 and 2007-08.
4. - Violations report sent to school's academic accrediting agency.
5. - A four-year show cause order on former South Carolina administrator Tom Perry.
