Alabama is going public after months of refusing to discuss its dealings with the NCAA and alleged rules violations in the football program.

Athletic officials scheduled a news conference for today to release hundreds of pages of documents regarding the NCAA’s two-year review of the school. The Tuscaloosa university has been tightlipped throughout the probe.

The disclosure comes on the eve of the school’s appearance before the NCAA Committee on Infractions. The panel will consider whether to penalize the school for two alleged infractions involving former Crimson Tide players Antonio Langham and Gene Jelks.
