BC sends its appeal to the SCFA, hopes to regain state title and lost victories

BC appeals its football sanctions

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Bakersfield College officially submitted appeals materials to the Southern California Football Association regarding sanctions levied against the program on May 14. 

In the appeal, BC has revealed "new" information which has resulted from the ongoing investigation into non-compliance with the Community College Athletics Association bylaw 2, which governs subsidizing, inducements and special privileges. 

BC said "our ongoing investigation has established that there is in fact "no" evidence that Bakersfield College, in any real way subsidized student athletes or provided recruitment inducements".

The sanctions stemmed from a non-affilated booster club paying football players for work and housing BC football student-athletes for recruiting purposes in lodging facilitated by staff. 

Those were among the seven violations levied against the school which was also stripped of its 2012 state football title and all victories coming in the 2011 and 2012 seasons.
