    NCAA infractions - NOT UC

    NOT UC !!!

    Matt Norlander is reporting that at least 6 schools will get hit with major infraction investigation this summer. the school name haven't been released s the notices haven’t gone out quite yet.

    I’ll venture a guess Arizona is one of them.

    This is weird. Auburn, post Chuck Person problems, apparently walloped itself internally with recruiting restrictions for Bruce Pearl and his staff to the point where no basketball recruiting, evaluations, etc. were done in 2017-18. Here's the thing though. It didn't tell anybody, like at all, outside the program.. They clammed up about it.

    Good article. Thanks for posting. Here's a good quote from the article:


    "They’re going after the coaches. (Somewhere, Bill Self and Sean Miller just twitched.) And only the coaches. Which is, of course, the most NCAA way of doing things. Find a few convenient targets, slap them around, but never tinker with the spigot that gushes money. The basketball schools involved in this scandal are too big to fail. Not just Kansas and Arizona, but ACC schools like Louisville and Miami and, yes, N.C. State -- which under Debbie Yow’s watch hired Gottfried and Early and strengthened its ties with Adidas, creating the conditions and atmosphere that led to the at-all-costs pursuit of Smith, only to then turn around and claim victimhood at the hands of ... Adidas.

    Prosecutors let the schools play the victim even as they still took their millions from Adidas, but they had to, because it was the only legal justification to make bribing a basketball prospect a federal crime. The NCAA wasn’t obligated to take that approach. It chose that approach.

    Gottfried gets hit for failing to monitor his program.

    No one gets hit for failing to monitor Gottfried"

    And, the first "shoe" has dropped: NC State and Mark Gottfried, now at Cal State Northridge, cited for Level 1 violations pertaining to impermissible benefits:

    No, that's an old lawsuit that went one way for ncaa purposes and the other way for the coaches purposes. He still won the suit.

    The Ncaa situation relative to coach's lawsuits is a slippery slope. I wouldn't rule anything out in that case unless Uconn settles it which seems less and less likely a possibility. Here was one close to us which has an interesting result:

    I'm no fan of tO$U, but if the NCAA is still considering penalizing the Buckeyes for violations under Jim O'Brien, who was fired 15 years ago, that's ridiculous.

Kevin Ollie gets a 3 year show cause while his predecessor at UConn, Jim Calhoun, got a 3 game suspension back in 2011 for far more serious violations (see article below). Under Calhoun, the NCAA found that UConn committed 8 MAJOR violations in 2010, including hundreds of impermissible calls, texts, and benefits to recruits. Worst of all, 2 of Calhoun’s assistants were charged with providing false and misleading information to NCAA investigators. But Calhoun was spared the same treatment that Ollie got.
