NORMAN, OK -- Oklahoma has self-reported giving its football players two nutritional supplements last season that are banned by NCAA bylaws.
In a report obtained today by The Associated Press, Oklahoma
reported to the Big 12 Conference that it had provided two
nutritional supplements that contained impermissible substances.
The university did not identify the supplements or what amounts
the athletes received. Oklahoma says it returned the unused portion
of the supplements after compliance staff discovered the error.
Oklahoma blamed one violation on a nutritional company
inadvertently shipping a banned substance with the same name as a
legal product that had been ordered by the university.
In the second instance, Oklahoma reported that the football
program's strength and conditioning staff failed to review the
ingredients of a new nutritional supplement that was ordered.
