The school says Tuesday that the football programís self-reported violation for having decorative icing on prospectsí cookie cakes will no longer count as an infraction.


NCAA spokeswoman Emily James tweets that her organization had talked with South Carolina and the Southeastern Conference and all parties ďagree itís not a concern & will not be processed as a violation.Ē
