NCAA tells South Carolina icing no violation

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) The NCAA will allow South Carolina to ice away on future cookie cakes.

The school says Tuesday that the football program's self-reported violation for having decorative icing on prospects' 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 "agree it's not a concern & will not be processed as a violation."

The sweet treat transgression was part of 22 violations South Carolina tuned into the NCAA from July 1st, 2013, through this past July 31st. The report was released to The Associated Press last week through an open records request.

The school said there were no penalties other than talking to football staffers involved.
