Boren confident NCAA will provide fair ruling

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- University of Oklahoma President David Boren says he believes OU received a "totally fair" hearing today from an NCAA Committee on Infractions.

Boren and OU officials met with the committee today in Indianapolis to defend itself against allegations in failed toproperly monitor athletes who worked at a Norman car dealership.

The Sooners dismissed three players -- including startingquarterback Rhett Bomar -- for taking pay for hours they didn't work at the dealership. Boren told The Associated press after the meeting that OU was given every opportunity to defend itself on the "failure to monitor" charge.

In a written response to the NCAA OU strongly disagreed with the failure to monitor charge. The school said the violations wouldn't have been found if not for an "aggressive
investigation."

Boren says the NCAA is restricting what he is allowed to say about the meeting.

Boren says he expects a decision in six to eight weeks on whether the committee will accept OU's self-imposed sanctions or add additional penalties.
