fordtuff504 The University of Louisiana Monroe has been under investigation for knowingly exceeding the recruiting cap for 1 Star Programs seen here. It has been determined that ULM signed 5 3-Star recruits and 5 2-Star recruits. As a result, the University of Louisiana Monroe will receive the following sanctions:
A loss of 2 Scholarships and a reduction of 2 from their 3-Star cap for the 2013 season.
As they are now a 2 Star Program, they will only be allowed to sign 10 3-Stars and 6 2-Stars in 2013.

capp34 Western Kentucky University as been under investigation by the NCAA COI. It has been determined that WKU has knowingly and willingly exceeded the recruiting caps for 2 Star programs seen here. They have already signed 14 3-Star recruits with a cap of 12 3-Star recruits imposed on 2 Star programs. As a result of being a 1st time offender, Western Kentucky is being given the following penalties:
To meet the cap, Western Kentucky must cut their 2 highest rated 3 star recruits from their current class.
They will receive a 2 scholarship reduction for each player signed over the cap(totaling 4). Those reductions will be from their highest cap available.
This means that Western Kentucky, being a 3 Star program in 2014, will be capped to 1 4-Star recruit and 13 3-Star recruits.
School officials are very upset at Coach Capp for knowingly breaking rules and bringing negativity to the university. However school officials have yet to speak with the coach about the infractions because he is nowhere to be found. With pending off season work due in a few hours no one knows the fate of Coach Capp will he stay or will he go. His wife has been quoted saying the coach has taken the news very hard and his future coaching career is up in the air. But that is not her concern right now her main concern is locating her husband and making sure his head is right and he doesn't do anything crazy. More news coming soon.......
The University of Louisiana Monroe has been under investigation with regards to the results from their recent game against FAU. It has been determined that ULM ran up the score in the final minutes of their 70-6 win. With the score at 63-6, QB Matt Carter ran 68 yards for a TD with just 50 seconds remaining in the game. This has been deemed as an inappropriate performance by ULM's head coach. The following are Z2H's rules about blowouts and running up scores:
Blowouts happen, both against users and the computer. However, blowouts need to be managed mercifully. Issues occur not with the fact that you’re scoring but how and when you are doing it. There comes a point in blowouts where the game is no longer about winning but about doing everything within your power to end the game as quickly as you can while scoring as little as possible. The following rules and restrictions are meant to help you manage blowouts effectively and to prevent our dynasty from being viewed negatively for our play. Penalties are harsh and will be enforced, as this is a very serious matter.
* At no point should any team score over 70 points (unless, of course, you must in order to win the game). Any game where a user is remotely close to exceeding 70 points will be closely investigated.
* Scoring inside of 1:30 in the fourth quarter is largely unacceptable. Get a first down, and take three knees. End the game as soon as you can.
* Backups should be in. Mass Subs should be utilized. If you are up 24+ points in the second half, there is no excuse for your starters to be in. Get your other guys experience and protect your starters from injury; it’s in your best interests. Mass subs may not be an option in user games. You are expected to quickly take out key skill-position players via depth chart substitutions. Try to be quick; we’ve all been on the other side of a blowout, and a pause is only going to make it worse.
* Passing with backups is acceptable and expected. However, backups shouldn’t be throwing double-digit passes. If you want to get a backup QB valuable time, bring him in in the first half. You should be predominantly a running team when the game is out of control.
* Chew Clock should be utilized as much as possible. Again, end the game as soon as you can.
Managing blowouts in user games is especially important to the health of our league. Be merciful. You don’t need to allow your opponent back into the game, but you need to be responsible and sportsmanlike in your victory. Do everything in your power to end the game. We don’t anyone developing any hard feelings towards another user in the dynasty.
As a result, ULM will be issued the following sanctions:
Starting QB Brayle Brown will be suspended for ULM's next 2 games, against Western Kentucky and Mid Tenn State.
As the player that scored the TD, backup QB Matt Carter will be suspended for 1 game, against Western Kentucky.
