Colorado Put On Probation For Meals Violations

Updated:
DENVER (AP) _ Colorado was placed on two years' probation and fined $100,000 by the NCAA on Thursday for inadvertently undercharging 133 athletes for meals totaling $61,700 over six academic years. The school also was ordered to cut one football scholarship for the next three seasons.

The violations are considered ``major,'' the infractions committee said. The fine is to be paid to a hunger- or homeless-relief charity.

The NCAA said the violations were discovered by the university's athletic staff, which promptly reported them. The NCAA found the impermissible benefits for walk-on athletes from 2000-01 through 2005-06. The NCAA said Colorado failed to adequately monitor training-table regulations.
