Baylor Will Receive No Additional Penalties For Recent Rules Violations

After a few tense days in Waco, the Baylor athletic department can breathe easy, as the NCAA has agreed to accept the school's self-imposed penalties for a series of NCAA rules violations it self-disclosed from the men's and women's basketball programs:

While there has been a lot of smoke around the Baylor program in recent years, none of the violations, which mainly involved improper text messaging with prospective recruits, were anywhere close to a fire.

As a result, the NCAA found the penalties the school placed on itself acceptable.

On the men's side, Scott Drew will be suspended from the first two games of conference play next season, while his program will lose one scholarship and have fewer official visits and evaluation days.

On the women's side, Kim Mulkey will be prohibited from participating in off-campus recruiting this summer and her program will lose two scholarships for next season.
