CU put on probation for meals violations

DENVER (AP) _ The N-C-A-A is handing down an expensive
punishment to the University of Colorado for inadvertently
undercharging student-athletes for meals.
N-C-A-A officials says 133 people were undercharged a total of
61-thousand-700 dollars over six academic years.
The infractions committee says the violations are considered
``major.''
C-U was placed on two years' probation; fined 100-thousand
dollars, to be paid to a hunger- or homeless-relief charity; and
ordered to cut one football scholarship for the next three seasons.
The N-C-A-A says the university's athletic staff discovered and
promptly reported the violations.
The impermissible benefits were for walk-on student-athletes
from the 2000-to-2001 season through the 2005-to-2006 season.
The N-C-A-A says Colorado failed to monitor training table
regulations adequately.
