How will the sanctions against Bakersfield College's football program impact game attendance? The efforts to raise funds for Memorial Stadium improvements? The team, and boosters' support of it?

Californian sports writer Jeff Evans talked about these topics and more Friday on "First Look with Scott Cox."

Here's what happened, Evans writes:

BC's program was stripped of its 2012 state football championship by the California Community College Athletic Association.

The Southern California Football Association took away every regular-season win from the 2011 and '12 seasons, leaving BC with official records of 0-10 those years.

The SCFA also imposed a postseason ban on the Renegades for the 2013 season and BC has been placed on probation.

This all stemmed from six CCCAA and SCFA rule violations.
