University of Oklahoma to appeal NCAA's penalties

NORMAN, OK-- OU President David Boren says the school will appeal the NCAA's stiff penalties imposed against it.

As you may know by now, a committee has erased all eight wins from the Sooners' 2005 football season.

The probe into the football team started after former quarterback Rhett Bomar and offensive lineman JD Quinn were kicked off the team for accepting money they didn't earn from a Norman car dealership.

The NCAA says OU failed to monitor the players. It's also ordered the Sooners to give up two scholarships in both the 2008 and 2009 seasons. The university has also been given two extra years of probation.

Again, OU plans to appeal these penalties.

These are the two points OU officials disagree with:

-Erasing the 2005 football season record

-Failing to monitor the actions of the players
