Say Soonyara to the Wins

Sooners did what most other teams would consider impossible and a nightmare at the same time -- they lost eight football games in the middle of the summer. Did the Sooners play a tournament that randomly popped up in the middle of the midwest? No, instead the Sooners are being forced to forfeit all their wins from the 2005 Football season.

The NCAA on Wednesday declared that the Sooners must not only forfeit all wins from the 2005 season, but they will also lose two scholarships from both the 2008-09 and 09-10 seasons. This all stems from the investigation into two players being paid for work done at a car dealership that they never actually committed. All records that involve QB Rhett Bomar and offensive lineman J.D. Quinn must be erased.

What do I have to say about this? When the hell will the USC Trojans have to do the same regarding Reggie Bush? And What the hell Sooners? Honestly. Working at a car dealership and pretending to sell cars = not that hard. All they had to do was let you pretend to work there selling cars and not make you work off commission. Seriously. No one would have ever looked into your sales records.

And Bob Stoops? He'll be wishing that he never coached that entire year, because why his record will reflect the losses from that season, it will no longer reflect the wins. His record will go from 86-19. to 79-19. So, the losses remain (after all the teams that beat the Sooners still retain their wins), but the wins are gone.

So, more probation, more embarrassment. And anyone want to take bets on how long until the manager who supervised the kids are fired or how long until that car dealership goes out of business?
