This morning, ESPN's Mark Schlabach broke news that the NCAA had been investigating Georgia Southern for an unknown infraction.

When the report from the NCAA was released at noon eastern, he revealed that the assistant compliance director and an athlete services official had provided three Eagle football players with impermissible academic benefits.

The punishment handed down by the NCAA results in two years probation for GS, along with the loss of two football scholarships, as well as reduced football evaluations by head coach Tyson Summers and the coaching staff.
