The National Collegiate Athletic Assn. took four 1987 football scholarships away from Iowa State Thursday and put the Big Eight school on probation for two years for recruiting rules violations. The sanctions resulted from a two-year investigation of the Iowa State program under football Coach Jim Criner, who was fired Nov. 12 with two games left in the season. They include a public reprimand and censure of the program but no ban on television or bowl appearances.
