The NCAA Committee on Infractions (“Committee” or “Panel”) recently issued its findings and found that the University of Mississippi (“UM” or “Institution”) committed violations of NCAA legislation. This case involved two athletics programs - women's basketball and track and field - and eight involved individuals at the UM. The women's basketball violations centered on academic fraud while the track and field violations involved impermissible tryouts, inducements, transportation and recruiting. The violations in both programs were complicated by some staff and student-athletes attempting to cover up the conduct by providing false and misleading information and/or failing to cooperate. Both former head coaches also failed to fulfill their head coaching responsibilities.

On August 5, 2016, in  Jenkins v. NCAA, Judge Claudia Wilken (also the judge in O’Bannon v. NCAA) entered an order denying the NCAA’s Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings. In Jenkins, the plaintiffs argue there are “restrictions on the compensation of student-athletes for their athletic performance.”  Relying on the Ninth Circuit’s language in O’Bannon that “compensation” must be “tethered to academics,” the NCAA moved for judgment on the pleadings in accordance with 12(c) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure by arguing that “offering [student-athletes] cash sum untethered to education expenses was not a less restrictive alternative to the NCAA’s current rules under the rule of reason."
