UCLA loses title because of sanctions

UCLA’s men’s tennis team was stripped of 2008 Pac-10 title for using an ineligible player, and USC was awarded the title.
Here is the release from the Pac-10:

PAC-10 PENALIZES UCLA FOR MEN’S TENNIS VIOLATION, USC DECLARED 2008 TEAM CHAMPION

WALNUT CREEK, Calif.–The UCLA men’s tennis program has been penalized by the Pacific-10 Conference for allowing a student-athlete to compete while ineligible during the 2008 season. The Conference determined that UCLA would be required to forfeit all singles and doubles matches in which the ineligible student-athlete participated during the 2008 season.
Based on UCLA’s team results after the ineligible student-athlete’s matches were forfeited, the results of two Pac-10 matches were subsequently reversed – UCLA-USC on April 12, 2008; UCLA-Arizona State on April 18, 2008.
By adjusting the final team standings to include a victory awarded to each USC and Arizona State, USC has been declared the 2008 Pac-10 men’s tennis champion. (corrected 2008 final Pac-10 men’s tennis standings listed below).
The violation was self-reported by the institution.

2008 Final Pac-10 Men’s Tennis Standings (Revised)
1. USC 7-0
2. STAN 5-2
UCLA 5-2
4. Arizona State 4-3
California 4-3
6. Washington 2-5
7. Arizona 1-6
8. Oregon 0-7

    Boy, do sanctions drop quick on UCLA but takes an eternity over at USC. That’s okay, UCLA should be stripped b/c it was a violation. SC should be treated the same way.

    UCLA self-reported the sanction.

    If UCLA did self-report, I’m even a prouder Bruin.

  • GoTroyGo

    You got what you deserved. We will to if proven. Proud? I wouldn’t be. And is RB or TF or proven to violate NCAA rules, you will not see me being proud. Dumb.

    Dear GoTroyGo,
    Please take at least 10 seconds to proofread before posting. When you forget to do so, you fulfill all sorts of stereotypes about your alma mater.

    Thanks,
    Everyone

    could care less bb. just make sure you’re on time for work monday so i don’t have to disipline you again.

  • boelterbruin

    Oh, come on. Disipline? Really?

  • Ri-L

    Ok… GoTroyGo is cracking me up. I actually laughed out loud at the stupidity of writing “disipline.” I’m still laughing. I’ve employed many SC alums… even as a UCLA grad, but I’ve never seen one as dumb as this idiot.

    Way to go… you really made your point! I’ve fired quite a few people who just didn’t care about how they wrote… come on, to? Instead of too?

    Tell me… does this effect you? Or affect you? It’s important… or is it “its” important?

    I don’t need to be a grammar Nazi, but frankly, your first post was complete gibberish. But, you might have a career in comedy.

    I’m still laughing at you.

    Trust me, for someone on the inside with this, it is not as it seems; UCLA did ZERO wrong and it is USC who purposely reported this to cause this to happen.

    Proud b/c I made it to UCLA undergrad on my merits and that’s what I want UCLA to stand for. I didn’t get admitted to Anderson b/c my lack of merits. Now I’m attending Marshall b/c of my checkbook (not that it’s a terrible program). Two institutions that operate differently. I’m prouder of the latter.

  • GoTroyGo

    Ri- Oh, that really hurts. You’re trying to cover up the fact you forgot the fries with my order last week. No tip for you. Laugh On.

    Lawyer Buffoon, you’re off the hook for now. We now have our new shining moron from south central. is $c your fake school too? The delusions of second choice imbeciles never cease to amuse.

    GotToGo:

    Ouch, I am cut to the quick by your rapier wit. (A rapier is a type of sword, often used in fencing. Wit is what you are half of.)

    I certainly will not engage in a battle of wits with you, since I don’t fight anyone unarmed.

    But, please, go ahead and tilt at windmills – you amuse me, knave.

  • GoTroyGo

    Such a big word for a little boy. Actually you are MY Knave, albeit a schmo. I am not too familiar with fencing, as it must be similar to your National Championship girly ball squad. No? Now back to your game of chess. BTW, what color is your smoking jacket and slippers? See if you can bring a little more “game” next time. Very weak.

  • Ri-L

    GotRoygO:

    My point proven again. I win. “Game” over.

  • GoTroyGo

    Riiigggghhhtttt. You have not point. But you win. Just like girly ball. Wearing your softball jersey again? What a dbag. One thing you can do better than me though, like walk under a table without bending over. Nice.

  • Ri-L

    Ok. You win. At first, I thought you were just an idiot, but now I see that you are actually an amazing satirist. I mean, really, could any SC supporter come up with the brilliant, “You have not point?” That’s vintage Yoda. Or the amazing put down, “walk under a table without bending over.” I’m humbled by your amazing ability to channel an idiotic, over zealous SC fan, all the while maintaining your innocence. Only a true Bruin could have pulled this off. I salute you.

    “You have not point.” That’s going in my .sig file. Brilliant!

  • GoTroyGo

    Please, don’t salute, just bow.
