Oklahoma to forfeit all wins from 2005 season


Recommended Posts

OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Oklahoma football program must forfeit all wins from the 2005 season and will lose scholarships as a result of players being paid for work they had not performed.

The penalties, announced Wednesday by the NCAA, stem from a case involving two players, including Sooners starting quarterback Rhett Bomar, who were kicked off the team for being paid for work they had not performed at a Norman car dealership.

Oklahoma permanently dismissed Bomar and guard J.D. Quinn point when it was determined they had knowingly and willfully been involved in receiving payment for work not performed. A third member of the team had been previously dismissed by the university for violations of team rules.

They shouldn't need to recompute anything, Oklahoma was a pedestrian 7-4 that year. In any case, they don't usually recompute things to account for this, it's basically figured as if both teams lost.

EDIT: It's not technically a forfeit, Oklahoma is required to vacate their victories, which makes it as if to Oklahoma, the games never happened.
