Eastern New Mexico is vacating all victories by eight teams over four seasons and all wins by four teams for a fifth season in hopes of avoiding more severe punishment from the NCAA for more than 100 self-reported eligibility violations.
The Division II school in Portales is vacating all wins in football, baseball, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's soccer, volleyball and softball for the 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons.
The Lone Star Conference school is also vacating its wins in football, baseball and men's and women's basketball for 2012-13.
Athletic director Jeff Geiser says ENMU hopes to avoid any postseason bans or scholarship losses.
Geiser says the violations don't involve any current ENMU athletes. This all stems from former student-athletes not in compliance with certain NCAA regulations. The compliance officer during the time of the violations no longer works at the university. The problems ranged from lack of signatures on required forms to a lack of degree plans or needed credit-hours to play sports. This has been an on-going investigation since the university self-reported the problems in 2012.
