Arkansas Probation Ends

April 16, 2006 - Posted at 12:32 p.m. CST

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) _ The Arkansas Razorbacks' three-year

N-C-A-A probation ends today. The N-C-A-A is expected to

send a letter confirming the probations completion. While on

probation, the school had to file annual reports on corrective

actions it was taking. Football lost ten scholarships -- two per

year -- and mens basketball lost one in 2004.

The last of the football scholarship restrictions ends this

academic year. When the fall semester begins, the team will be able

to award the maximum 85 scholarships.

The disciplinary action resulted from rulings that Arkansas

committed three major violations and one secondary infraction. At

the heart of the investigation was a Dallas business, J-and-H Truck

Service, owned by an Arkansas booster. The school and the

N-C-A-A found that from 1994 to 1999 at least 20 football and

basketball players were overpaid about 43-hundred dollars total for

parttime jobs.
