The NCAA has wrapped up their investigation into allegations surrounding the South Carolina athletics program, and cited the Gamecocks for failing to monitor the athletics program.

In short, South Carolina will be on probation for three years, lose 3 scholarships per year for two years, will pay an $18,500 fine and will limit the number of official visits this year to 30. 

In the article summarizing the findings, the NCAA noted the University's outstanding cooperation throughout the process, which "went beyond standard expectations" (even tweeting about it). 

Case closed, move on.
