Ragin' Cajuns to Vacate wins 2011-2014
Bleacher Report

quote:

The University of Louisiana at Lafayette football program will vacate 22 wins between the 2011-2014 seasons after a two-year investigation and subsequent ruling by the NCAA's Committee on Infractions, the school announced Thursday. 

In addition to vacating the program's wins, the Ragin' Cajuns football team will vacate the statistics compiled by ineligible athletes from 2011-2014.    

According to the school's official statement, penalties were levied against Louisiana at Lafayette after the NCAA's investigation revealed that an unnamed former assistant coach helped falsify the ACT scores of five athletes considering the program.

"While it is disappointing to vacate these victories and championships, we finally put this chapter behind us and will continue to grow our championship football program," director of athletics Scott Farmer said, per the statement. "We stand behind the integrity and accomplishments of Coach Mark Hudspeth, members of his coaching staff and each of our student-athletes who played football during the Hudspeth era."

While wins—including 2011 and 2013 Louisiana Bowl victories over San Diego State and Tulane—will be vacated, the school will not be slapped with a postseason ban by the NCAA. 

As a result, the Ragin' Cajuns can move on from the investigation and take pride in the fact that they worked beside the NCAA to get to the bottom of the infractions. 

"The NCAA stated that UL Lafayette's 'exemplary cooperation in this case was a model for the kind of relationship and cooperation member institutions should strive for in the infractions process,'" Farmer said.

It's still a loss for them.
They don't forfeit games anymore, not since we had to in 93 because of Antonio Langham signing a napkin for an agent. We still got to keep our bowl win though.

Well that's what they're called on the NCAA site - University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

The NCAA sure knows how to come down hard on small programs they can try to make an example out of to show the big schools they still have balls

No doubt that a 2013 New Orleans Bowl Champion banner would be hanging in Yulman Stadium if Rick Dickson were still AD.

Vacating of wins is really kind of meaningless. Everyone knows the results of them anyway.
Money and fines is really the only substantial penalty - hit them in the pocketbook. Especially a program like ULL that doesn't have the financial resources to cover it. More taxpayer money to fund a dog and pony show in Lafayette.
