COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) South Carolina's athletic department reported nine NCAA secondary violations in the past six months, including one when a staffer bet dinner on a game not involving the Gamecocks.
"I don't even know if it was a college game," athletic spokesman Steve Fink said Thursday.
The violation took place Jan. 22 and was considered the most serious one of those detailed in South Carolina's report. Such violations are submitted to the NCAA's enforcement staff for processing and review. The rest of the infractions are sent to the Southeastern Conference office, which forwards a list to the NCAA at the end of the academic year.
