South Carolina self-imposes penalties –

COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina told the NCAA it agrees that major violations took place in its football program and will eliminate six football scholarships over the next three years as part of several self-imposed penalties.

The school released its response Wednesday, three months after the NCAA accused the Gamecocks of receiving $55,000 in improper benefits for staying at a Columbia hotel at a reduced rate and for its involvement with a Delaware-based mentoring group who’s president and treasurer are South Carolina graduates.

“The university does not contest the allegations” by the NCAA, said the second sentence of South Carolina’s 111-page response.
