Georgia Tech has received four years' probation from the NCAA's Committee on Infractions after the school violated rules and failed to cooperate with investigations. They've also taken away their 2009 ACC football championship and placed limits on their men's basketball scholarships. The NCAA said...
quote:

"According to the committee, the university's failure to cooperate and meet the obligations of membership compounded the seriousness of the case by adding onto what was originally an isolated instance of impermissible benefits and preferential treatment,"
The school apparently failed to cooperate when the NCAA investigated the relationship between a sports agent and QB Calvin Booker and WR Demariyus Thomas. Plus Thomas allegedly accepted $312 worth of clothing from a sports agency employee and was still allowed to play the last three games of the 2009 season.
