Unofficially known as the “death penalty”, which deletes the program in a matter of sports competition for a season (sometimes more). Are imposed only five schools?

Alex Groza basketball stars Ralph Beard and Dan Barnstable were arrested for payments to players in a point shaving scandal in the 1948-49 season, when Kentucky won its second straight national title. An NCAA investigation found that the basketball program in the UK had paid the players and coaches were allowed to knowingly athletes who were academically inelligible to compete.

The first Southeastern Conference competition Kentucky banned for a year, and the NCAA as well. Unlike further instances of the death penalty, all University of Kentucky athletic programs was excluded from competition for the 1952-1953 season, not just the offending team basketball.

Alerted in the spring of 1971 that Southwestern Louisiana (now known as the University of Louisiana at Lafayette) may have a bad recruited several players, the NCAA discovered a number of other violations.

Coach Beryl Shipley allow players to use their vehicle for free and paid for gasoline, made personal loans to players so there was no record of repayment, and gave money to potential players of visits to campus “for purposes of entertainment.”

Coaches also falsely claimed several players academically eligible to compete, and in one case, an assistant coach at Southwestern Louisiana forged the signature of a high school principal in the transcription of a player.

The NCAA banned the team from Southwestern Louisiana basketball competition for the 1973-74 and 1974-75 seasons.

In 1985, the institutions of the NCAA members voted 427-6 to give the Southern Methodist University’s football death penalty for repeat rule violations. (The school had been sanctioned seven times since 1958.)

Morehouse, a Division II football program, allowed two professional players who were now under contract with the Atlanta Ruckus, a member of the United Soccer League A-League (basically a minor league USL), play for two years without having to meet income or eligibility requirements.

The tennis coach and father of MacMurray created a scholarship fund and distributed to 10 students and 162,000 athletes in over four years. Division III sports programs, such as MacMurray, are not allowed to offer scholarships under NCAA rules.

MacMurray men’s tennis was banned from competition for two years. The coach – who at one point during a hearing of the NCAA refers to the rules as a “joke” and was fired because of their violations – was warned that “if they seek employment … in an NCAA member institution during the next four years, he and the hiring institution must appear before the Committee on Infractions to determine if you can. “MacMurray College in Jacksonville, Illinois
