Pac-10 says secondary violations common

A Pac-10 official told the Associated Press today that the secondary violations that UW has self-reported are “common” and almost always result in minor penalties.
Here’s a link to the story, quoting Pac-10 associate commissioner for compliance Mike Matthews.
This is similar to what I reported last week after the first secondary violation.
Matthews didn’t comment specifically on the UW violations but he said that the general penalty for these kinds of things is a letter of admonishment and a revisiting of the rules. A UW official said today that the Huskies will let their statement of the other day stand as their official comment, so they had no additional comment today on on what Matthews said. However, it is expected that when UW files its final report it will recommend some penalties that are likely to be in line with a letter of adominishment and reviewing the rules.
