The NCAA has cleared Mississippi State’s baseball program from wrongdoing stemming from allegations that the program practiced too long in 2006 and 2007, MSU compliance director Bracky Brett said today.
“They agreed with our contention that there was no violation,” Brett said, adding that the NCAA sent a letter to that effect earlier this month.
The NCAA sent MSU a letter on Dec. 4, 2007, alleging that former MSU coach Ron Polk “conducted baseball practices lasting approximately six to eight hours per day that included 36-inning, inter-squad scrimmages held at the institution’s baseball field.”
Polk, now a volunteer assistant at Alabama-Birmingham, said the all legations, which came from an anonymous accusation, were nonsense.
“I know that we’re not guilty,” he said at the time.
