Georgia Text gets into more hot water with NCAA

Cue the 'Mark Richt has lost control of...' jokes.

While I'm sympathetic, because technology is hard, at some point it just becomes comedic the level of shooting yourself in the foot:
The majority of the violations occurred in the football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball programs from March 2011 through March 2012. Some of the violations in those programs were due to logging failures when members of the coaching staff placed calls after another coaching staff member placed an earlier permissible call but failed to log the call. An assistant football coach was considered “at risk” due to his involvement in the majority of the football program’s violations.
So Georgia Tech can't get their database right? Perhaps some enterprising Terry MIS grad could make a buck.

A former assistant coach also picked up a show cause penalty for his actions for being responsible for intentionally ignoring NCAA regulations banning text messages (in 2011-12). The coach noted that he'd not have made the texts if he'd known Tech was watching his communications.

The whole upside of this is that Tech's athletics program is now on probation until June 2017. Somewhere a message boarder is trying to say this is all thUGAs fault.
