NCAA Sanctions Utah Men’s Basketball for Recruiting Violations

first_img Robert Lovell August 6, 2019 /Sports News – Local NCAA Sanctions Utah Men’s Basketball for Recruiting Violations FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSALT LAKE CITY – The NCAA today issued its infractions report on self-reported violations by the Utah men’s basketball program related to the recruitment of a student-athlete in April 2018. The University has accepted all penalties set forth in the report—most of which were self-imposed­ by the University.“The University of Utah is committed to integrity in all of its endeavors,” said Utah Director of Athletics Mark Harlan. “While we take any violation of NCAA rules seriously, we are confident these actions were isolated and inadvertent and have been fully addressed by the University and the NCAA. Through this process, we took the opportunity to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of our compliance education and monitoring practices and put additional checks and balances in place as a result.”The recruiting violations centered on a misreading of the NCAA calendar and a misinterpretation of the official visit limitations. Though the calendar oversight resulted in Utah coaches visiting a prospect at his high school during a period when in-person, off-campus recruiting was impermissible, the staff did follow all institutional policies and procedures in coordinating the visit. The coaches also inadvertently triggered an official visit when the same prospect made an unofficial visit to Utah in connection with his official visit to Salt Lake Community College, which also was interested in the prospect.Although Utah carefully adhered to its understanding of the rules relating to unofficial visits when the prospect came to Salt Lake City, the NCAA classified the visit to Utah’s campus as official, thus exceeding the number of permitted official visits for the recruiting period.“While they were inadvertent and unintentional mistakes on our part, and there was never an intent to circumvent any rules, we accept that they were violations and, as the head coach, I am accountable for them,” said head coach Larry Krystkowiak. “I have always been a strong proponent of protecting the integrity of college basketball and that will not change.”As part of its commitment to compliance, the University self-imposed several sanctions including: a two-year probationary period, a $5,000 fine payable to the NCAA, which will come directly from the men’s basketball budget, a one-week suspension for the associate head coach (served in November 2018), reprimands for the coaches, and recruiting limitations on off-campus recruiting and official visits. In addition, the University has prohibited its coaches from having any on-campus interactions with SLCC’s coaches, or from recruiting any SLCC basketball student-athletes for a one-year period.In addition to these self-imposed penalties, the NCAA Committee on Infractions imposed further sanctions, including an off-campus recruiting ban for the associate head coach in July 2019, a one-year ban on contact with the now former head coach of SLCC and publicizing the circumstances of the violation in the school’s men’s basketball media guide, on the athletics website and to prospective student-athletes. The Committee also proposed a two-game suspension for Coach Krystkowiak, which was appealed and reversed by the Committee on the basis that the violations were unintentional, limited and not indicative of systemic problems. For those reasons the Committee did not prescribe the suspension it initially proposed. Written by Tags: NCAA/NCAA Sanctions/Recruiting Violation/Utah Runnin’ Utes Basketballlast_img read more

OTM will soon be profitable, City analyst tells agent shareholders

Beginning Farmers

first_imgStarting in October, a new training program will offer beginning and young farmers crash courses in business planning, vegetable and fruit production and goat husbandry to provide them with a strong foundation to help grow their new businesses. The University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, UGA Small Business Development Center, Georgia Organics, Fort Valley State University and AgSouth Farm Credit, along with other partners, are developing the training and mentoring program to help beginning farmers become successful and sustainable farmers.The partnership will provide training to 70 new farmers, focusing on minority farmers and farmers with limited means. The USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture announced Feb. 2 that the partnership would receive a Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Grant of $652,000 to establish an innovative training program that can be presented throughout the state. “Many of the young people interested in farming don’t come from a farming background,” said Julia Gaskin, director of UGA’s Sustainable Agriculture Program. “We have been very interested in developing a comprehensive training program to help this group and those currently farming that want to improve their operations.” The statewide partnership also includes UGA Extension’s county agents, the Department of Agriculture and the Georgia Fruit & Vegetable Growers Association. “We think this collaborative approach will give us a good foundation for a strong program for the state’s beginning farmers,” Gaskin said.This grant is part of more than $18 million in NIFA funding to support beginning farmers. The core of the training program is business planning. The UGA Small Business Development Center — a unit of the Office of Public Service and Outreach — and AgSouth Farm Credit will provide business planning and financing workshops to the farmers. “To assure a continued sound agriculture industry in our nation, it is essential that we provide financial literacy and risk management training for the next generation of farmers,” said Van McCall, director of the AGAware program for AgSouth. “AgSouth Farm Credit has made a commitment to the future of agriculture through the development of our national award-winning AGAware program. We are very excited for the opportunity to partner in this program.” AgSouth Farm Credit launched a young and beginning farmers training program in 2013 with AGAware, a series of business skills workshops focusing on business planning, marketing and Farm Services Agency and Small Business Administration programs. Georgia Organics will help develop training for farmers interested in small fruit and vegetable production and coordinate the hands-on training that will offer internships and/or mentoring experiences. “Beginning farmers face many obstacles, and successful, established farmers offer a wealth of expertise to help them succeed,” said Alice Rolls, executive director of Georgia Organics. “We look forward to connecting these new growers with producers who have been there, and to the rewarding work of feeding their communities.” Tom Terrill, a small ruminant expert at Fort Valley State University will lead the development of the small ruminant training. The training is based on the highly successful Master Goat Producers classes that have been run in north Georgia. The demand for sheep and goat products has been growing, and this training will teach new farmers the basics on how to be successful with their herds. “Goat production is an ideal enterprise for beginning farmers because of (growing) demand for goat meat in the United States and because they do not require an intensive system,” Terrill said. “Goats can utilize brush, broadleaf weeds and grasses on marginal land and still be productive.” The UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences will lead the grant and provide additional training in small fruit and vegetable production.For more information about Georgia’s Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program, see www.SustainAgGA.org.last_img read more

FARC and Colombian Government Peace Talks Move Forward

first_imgBy Dialogo December 21, 2012 The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) stated on December 19 that the peace talks in Havana were held “on a positive note” during their first month, in which both delegations were “presenting their arguments” to put an end to the armed conflict. “The meetings have been held on a positive note of respectful discussion. Arguments have been presented and popular concerns are being gathered,” Jesús Santrich, a guerrilla negotiator, told the press before starting the talks in Havana’s Convention Palace. Santrich highlighted “the successful development of the Integral Agrarian Development policy forum, which concluded on December 19 in Bogotá with the participation of 1,200 delegates, and the proposals of which will be submitted to FARC and government representatives on January 8, in Havana. During that forum, which started on December 17, “the most popular organizations have expressed their deep concern for the landownership policy of the Colombian agrarian system” and the need for “strengthening small and medium sized estates,” the insurgent added. Since the talks started on November 19 in Havana, conversations have been aimed at the agrarian issue, the origin of the armed conflict in Colombia that has lasted for almost half a century, and which caused about 600,000 deaths, 15,000 missing, and four million displaced people, according to official data. The agenda also includes the following topics: illicit drugs, political participation, disarmament, and victims reparations. Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said that the conversation should conclude in November 2013 at the latest, one year after it started.last_img read more

Finding a passion and turning it into action

first_imgYou don’t just wake up one day and decide that you are going to be passionate about something new. Finding a passion takes work, it takes trial and error, and sometimes it takes pure luck. I found my passion in political advocacy for credit unions through a little bit of all three. Because of my passion for political advocacy and my opportunity to pursue it at work, I am a more engaged team member, more vested in the outcomes of my members’ financial lives, and more involved with my team. Because of my passion, I am producing a greater return for my credit union in all facets of my job – all of this coming at a minimal cost.What does internal grassroots advocacy mean? To me it means that as a team we are equipped to speak on behalf of our member owners. We are able and willing to address with our legislators the issues that impact our member-owned financial cooperatives. Seems simple enough, right?So what’s the benefit of having an internal grassroots advocacy program? A major benefit, of course, is helping to steer our legislators toward credit union-friendly outcomes. At this point I know what you are thinking: I’ve heard this before – and I’m sure you have. We are always looking for ways to increase our voices with legislators and regulators. There’s nothing new here. continue reading » 27SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
