Seven possible violations, all under Kyle Flood's watch.

The NCAA charges that Flood provided former cornerback Nadir Barnwell with an impermissible extra benefit by directly contacting a professor seeking special consideration for Barnwell in an academic course relating to the 2014-2015 academic year. In addition, it's believed that Flood is charged with failing to promote an atmosphere of compliance in the football program, violating the principles of NCAA head coach responsibility legislation.

Yeah, that Rutgers secret society that gave Harbaugh an Co. an official warning earlier this year said that they would be aided by OSU, their "powerful ally."

Pretty sure that the 58-0 drubbing you got from OSU means they couldn't give two shits about you, Rutgers....

That seems fairly non-specific.

Hard facts or shut the fuck up NCAA.

I would think that anyone who saw Rutgers play would realize they're already being violated weekly.

contacting the professor. The NCAA just moves slowly. They tend to be fast  (relatively) only when eligibility is an issue. Rutgers has already fired Flood and the AD and will probably avoid serious punishment. Could be a show cause for Flood.
