lips, both from Ball High School
in Galveston, Tex., had been tam-
pered with, Oklahoma athletic Di-
rector Wade Walker said.
Walker said Michael had ad-
mitted having knowledge of t h e
tampering of Jackson's transcript.
He said Jackson, the No. 2 quar-
terback for the Big Eight champ-
ions last season as a freshman, also
had stayed in an OU athletic dorm-
itory for two nights in violation of
conference regulations while in

high school.
Sooner coach Barry Switzer said
there was no indication that the
National Collegiate Athletic Asso-
ciation might enter the investi-
Dr. Paul Sharp, university presi-
dent, said in a prepared statement
that "To the best of our know-
ledge, neither Kerry Jackson nor
Mike Phillips was aware that their
transcripts had been tampered
with, and therefore are presumed
innocent of any wrongdoing."
Sharp said he had also been
assured by Switzer that no other
member of the football staff was
involved in the activity now under
Asked if former Head Coach
Chuck Fairbanks, now general
manager and coach of the profes-

tampering, Walker said: "I can't
answer that. I do not know."
In Kansas City, a Big Eight
spokesman acknowledged the in-
vestigation. "The information is
correct and the Big Eight Confer-
ence has no further comment at
this time," the spokesman said.
Walker said Oklahoma would for-
feit every game in which Jack-
son played - eight of them vic-
tories and one a loss to Colorado--
meaning Oklahoma will retain vic-
tories over only Kansas State,
Iowa State and Nebraska.

Michael would take a coaching po-
sition with the Patriots, but that
could not be confirmed.
The loss of Jackson could be
critical to the Sooner grid for-
tunes. A sophomore this year, he
had loked sharp in spring drills
and was far out in front for the
No. 1 quarterbacking job.
Last season Jackson, the f i r s t
black quarterback in the school's
history, rushed 49 times out of the

him sixth on the squad. He com-
