CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) — Eastern New Mexico University says it is offering to erase several seasons' worth of victories by nearly all of its sports programs because of violations involving athletes.

Athletic director Jeff Geiser said Wednesday that most of the violations are minor and stemmed from misinformed advisers.

The violations, which date back to the summer of 2012, include athletes failing to declare their amateur status.

According to the Clovis News Journal (http://bit.ly/1beVPnA), the Division II school says it's volunteering to have eight teams' wins vacated over four seasons as well as all wins by four of those teams in a fifth season.

The Lone Star Conference school says it's doing that in hopes of avoiding even more severe punishment from the NCAA for more than 100 self-reported violations.
