CHEATERS! Actually it has to do with a peculiarity of Caltech's academic schedule... but the school is forcing the teams to vacate some of their hard-fought wins.

Compare and contrast to Penn State!

This is hilarious:

"What are the penalties? I know it's not lost athletic scholarships because we don't have any," Khim.

Those penalties, many of them self-imposed by the university, include no postseason play next season, three years of probation, one year of no campus recruiting and the vacating of wins and records.

The ban on postseason play, for example, won't have a huge effect for teams just looking to win a game.

Baw ha ha hahahaha....

Caltech is on NCAA Probation. No, really.

"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." ~LA Times
