The Pacific 10 Conference has charged that University of Washington boosters violated NCAA rules on dozens of occasions in the last eight years, including an alleged scheme in which a Los Angeles businessman routinely provided Husky players with summer jobs requiring little or no work. If the charges are deemed valid by the conference's Compliance and Enforcement Committee, which is scheduled to consider the matter in August, Washington might be barred from appearing in a bowl game next season.

Washington officials said they plan to challenge the NCAA's proposed additional penalties. "We're emotionally very upset," Washington President William Gerberding told a news conference attended by Athletic Director Barbara Hedges and football Coach Jim Lambright.
