    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.

    That could be I'm betting that that's just going to slow down the pace of things for Penny and Memphis.

    The case I'd be watching on this one isn't UNC, It's Arizona. Sean Miller was directly implicated in the recruiting violations there. It'll be interesting how long it takes the NCAA to figure that case out now that the Book Richardson thing is out of the federal court system.

    The punishment for Miller should be bigger than Hardaway. More money was involved. Neither is a repeat violator as far as the NCAA knows right now. Where that might change for both of them is if Wiseman or DeAndre Ayton weren't the only payments they made.

Where is his punishment? Theres a possibly MU could lose the 12 games the kid will not play in but it just seems the NCAA doesnt really want to stop this type of infractions.

    Per the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Wiseman doesn't need a dime yet. He'll be allowed to put together a payment plan over a four-year period. He'll be able to play after the 12-game suspension, but perhaps make only a token good faith payment. Then, after he cashes his first big NBA check, he can pay it off, if he wants.

    No can do:

    Boosters, referred to by the NCAA as “representatives of the institution’s athletic interests,” include anyone who has:
    • Assisted in providing benefits to enrolled student athletes or their families.

    Sure, sure because they don't care about new infractions.

    I was wondering where a college freshman gets that kind of money to just donate. Very odd they would appeal. I do agree with Memphis that donating this amount to a charity is harsh since the loan was given to his parents and paid off in full. The saga continues....

    Wiseman has to pay back 11.5K to a charity of his choice before he can set foot on the court. If he doesn’t have it, he can’t play. If I’m him, I pack up and go to the draft instead of risking injury

    ESPN reported today that James Wiseman is suspended for a total of 12 games, leaving 11 left to go. He will return to the Memphis squad on 1/12/20 versus USF. UC goes to Memphis four days later.

    UM are appealing, saying he's being treated too harshly. I "respectfully" disagree.

    Yeah, nothing says clean like two vacated final four appearances. He takes guys who could go straight to the NBA from high school and takes credit for getting them to the NBA.

    I almost choked after reading this quote in an AP article:

    "Calipari has fashioned his reputation as a coach with the players' best interest in mind, saying his mission is to play by the NCAA rules, then move his top talent into the running for NBA millions as soon as practically possible."

    Speaking of Creighton, Ex-Creighton Coach Dana Altman at Oregon probably ought to be looking over his shoulder as well.
