The last two seasons for Oklahoma State were clouded by lefthander Andrew Oliver’s wrangling with the NCAA after he was ruled ineligible (and later reinstated by court order) for violating the NCAA’s "no agent" rule. Now the Cowboys are facing more infractions issues.
The Tulsa World has reported that Oklahoma State president Burns Hargis, athletic director Mike Holder and baseball coach Frank Anderson will be in Indianapolis to meet with members of the NCAA Committee on Infractions on Aug. 7. The Cowboys are alleged to have committed a NCAA rules major violation, which the World reports stems from a former player accepting a free used car from a church group in 2007. According to the paper, the athletic department wrote the president saying that church members "have made clear that their gifts were motivated by their concern for the young man (and) not by his association to (OSU)." The OSU athletic department described the church’s gift as "an innocent and charitable act."
The Committee on Infractions will determine next month whether violations occurred and whether they are major or secondary violations.
