Caltech Sanctioned for Athletic Violation!
Yes, really. Caltech has been sanctioned by the NCAA for athletic violations. This is like the start of a comic routine. (Tip of the cap to Michael Woods and Yan Zhang.) Update: This article from The Washington Post starts off the article rather snarkily, and rightfully so. We are so going to be the butt of jokes for this. (Thanks to Rachel Gray for posting this article.) Update (7/15/12): Deb Eason has posted a link to an LA Times opinion piece by Bill Plaschke. In fact, this whole slew of stories has actually been really good for Caltech's publicity. Caltech turned itself in, which was absolutely the right thing to do. In so doing, Caltech is showing other schools how things should be done.
