[quote=“Great Santini, post:1, topic:1201”]This is looking serious for UCONN. I don’t think the Big Ten will give UCONN a second look now.
Kansas ticket scandal, Michigan self imposed sanctions with possible more action by the NCAA, questions about Bledsoe at Kentucky, USC report due out next week. Plenty going on in NCAA compliance (or lack of) space.
Personally, it wouldn’t surprise me if the NCAA came down pretty hard on all these programs - if they just give slaps on the wrist, they look impotent. If they hit one or two hard, there will be screams of favoritism, so I’m betting tough sanctions for all.[/quote]
Let’s get the entire story for these two before we start making conclusions. I am all for the NCAA coming down hard on them if they are found guilty.
So far the only people implicated in the KU ticket scandal are AAU guys (Pump Bros) and employees in the KU ticketing department. The potential connection is KU has deep connections to the Pump Brothers (as do many, many Universities around the country) and one of current player’s father was involved. We still don’t know if the KU coaching staff had a role.
As for Bledsoe, we need to get the facts before anything happens. NYT wrote an article. To my knowledge, the NCAA isn’t even investigating yet.
I think Oklahoma could be in some serious trouble right now.
