University of Florida football

By 1984, former Gator coach Charley Pell had been cited for 107 infractions, including paying for no-show jobs, scalping athletes' tickets, spying on opposing teams, giving free gifts to players and other violations. Pell was fired that season after three games. The Gators went on to win the SEC title, but the conference university presidents voted to vacate the team's victories because of the violations. The program received two years of probation, was banned from TV appearances and bowl games and lost 20 scholarships, leading to mediocrity in the 1980s. File photo
