Athletics at CalTech

CalTech has been fined by the NCAA for the way students register for classes. Technically this means that for the first 3 weeks of school some students aren’t (yet) taking a full course load and are therefore not eligible (under NCAA rules) to play on teams. Since CalTech always loses this hardly seems like a problem, but the new athletic director was worried and reported the school to the NCAA who punished ‘tech. The LA Times puts it best:

One of the country’s losingest athletic programs has chosen to vacate wins it doesn’t have, shut down the recruiting it doesn’t do and be ineligible for championships it never wins.

I’m kind of proud of my school.
