MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The University of Alabama didn't receive
penalties in any sports under the NCAA's Academic Progress Report,
while Auburn's men's indoor and outdoor track programs were
sanctioned.

The report released Wednesday said Jacksonville State football
and UAB men's basketball lost scholarships for falling short of the
Academic Progress rate cutline of 925.

The numbers were based on classroom performance data collected
from 2005-06 to 2008-09.

The Auburn track teams will lose half a scholarship.

UAB basketball loses two scholarships and is limited to 16 hours
of practice time weekly instead of 20.

Jacksonville State loses a partial scholarship and is only
allowed 29 scholarship freshmen instead of 30.
