Rutgers is facing a series of possible violations from the NCAA as they found it in a Notice of Allegations. The potential violations took place under coach Kyle Flood from 2011-2015. Here’s a list of the allegations:

16 players got to play despite failing drug tests?!?!?! That means it took place during two years in which Rutgers actually made a bowl game. That is absolutely ludicrous and unacceptable.

The NOA comes after an 18-month investigation into the athletics program. According to NCAA procedures, Rutgers will have 90 days to respond, and sources say the university is likely to appeal the notice and will receive a formal hearing on the allegations at some point next year.

Rutgers’ case has been given a Level-II designation and those violations are defined by the NCAA as “violations that provide or are intended to provide more than a minimal but less than a substantial or extensive recruiting, competitive or other advantage; includes more than a minimal but less than a substantial or extensive impermissible benefit; or involves conduct that may compromise the integrity of the NCAA collegiate model as set forth in the Constitution and bylaws.”
