BATON ROUGE, La.- Southern University says the school has problems with paperwork and gender equity issues as the school faces a Dec. 17 deadline on its review for NCAA rules compliance.

The university board met Friday. The Advocate reported that while the athletic director downplayed the situation, some board members said Southern could have problems with the NCAA.

Outgoing board Chairman Tony Clayton said the university's initial report to the NCAA was "woefully lacking" and that people are having to make up for lost time and poor record keeping. But he said he expected Southern to maintain NCAA certification.

Clayton said Southern's gender equity issues revolve around plans to build new baseball facilities next year before the same is done for the women's softball team.
