Cited for a "lack of institutional control," Central Florida's football and men's basketball programs were each slapped with a one-year postseason ban by the NCAA on Tuesday. The school was also hit with a $50,000 fine for major violations that occurred during recruiting.
Moving forward, though, the school will appeal the football bowl ban. From Pete Thamel:

UCF received the Committee on Infractions' report earlier this morning and have been reviewing it.
''We have received the report, and we are reviewing it,'' said UCF spokesman Chad Binette in a statement earlier Tuesday morning. ''We are committed to building a strong culture of compliance and winning with integrity.''
The NCAA added two years to UCF's previously proposed three-year probationary period.
