Congratulations Sooners, you’ve been Bomar’ed

The NCAA brought the pain on Oklahoma for the Rhett Bomar self serve car dealership and they're pretty damn serious. Oklahoma must erase its wins from the 2005 season and will lose two scholarships for the 2008-09 and 2009-10 school years.

In addition coach Bob Stoops' career record will be amended to reflect the erased wins, dropping it from 86-19 in eight seasons to 78-19.

When reached on his cell phone, Quinn said he did not pay any attention to the infractions committee's ruling on Oklahoma, calling it "dumb" and referring to it with an expletive.

I'll assume the expletive was "shit" because it goes with dumb, but feel free to fill in your own.

"I have no idea," Quinn said. "I don't care. Go fuck yourself.* "

The ruling is based on what the NCAA said was a "failure to monitor" the employment of the players. Oklahoma has 15 days to notify the NCAA in writing of an appeal. Oklahoma President David Boren said "Hell yes were appealing and tell Bomar he's a stupid dumbass that can't keep a secret."* Just to add that dash of irony that makes stories like this ever so more delicious: the interim chairman of the NCAA Division I Committee on Infractions was none other than Paul Dee the athletic director of Miami. You may remember Miami from such thuggery as the Florida International on-field bench clearing brawl. "Although this case centered on a few violations involving three student-athletes, the committee finds this case to be significant and serious for several reasons," the NCAA report said, noting the length of time of the violations and the fact that Oklahoma had appeared before the committee in April 2006 regarding violations in its men's basketball program.

*ok I added this but it's not a stretch of the imagination
