Default Sooners get their wins back...

Ruling that stripped OU of 8 wins in 2005 overturned

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma will have its eight wins reinstated from its 2005 Holiday Bowl season.

An NCAA appeals committee partially overturned its ruling in the infractions case involving former quarterback Rhett Bomar.

The NCAA Infractions Appeals Committee says Oklahoma should not have been found guilty of separate violations for failing to detect that football players were working at a Norman car dealership and failing to monitor those students' employment.

The appeals panel Friday partially upheld a "failure to monitor" violation imposed against Oklahoma. The panel says the university didn't use established institutional procedures that would have revealed the employment of 12 players at the dealership in summer 2005.

This kind ticks me off cuz I believe that with this ruling Oklahoma moves back ahead of Ohio State in terms of all-time winning percentage.

So when coach can't find you he doesn't ask where you've been?

Yeah, nobody knew they were there I guess. That's what I got from the article and this whole mess.

I hear Meyer has a rolodex of lies on his desk that his kids pick from when coming up with excuses on where they've been/what they've been doing.

Maybe Stoops should take note.

Good. I never liked this punishment to begin with when the ruling came down. They punished the kids who ****ed up, let the program count their wins.

Unfortunately there is no real way to punish the program/coach without punishing the kids. I can go back and forth on it.
