NCAA has given Kevin Ollie a three-year show-cause, put UConn on two years of probation, forced a vacation of records, taken a scholarship away from 2019-20, and put recruiting restrictions into effect (some self-imposed by UConn).

 

Before anyone gets knotted up about some pie in the sky program death penalty wishes, for a internal industry regulatory organization, those are some solid penalties.

Who's next?

Is Kevin Ollie the worst coach in any sport to ever win a title? He was cheating and still had those results?!

Did I read correctly, that it was because he was in charge of the program? If so, all those HCs involved in the FBI scandal should get just/cause also. Will they?

No. They will not. 

Even in an equitable world, every situation is different.

I know I should cheer for the B1G in OOC games to help our SOS, but I wouldn't be sad to see the Longhorns and Wildcats start Purdue and Illinois off with an L.

The NCAA has served NC State with two Level I violations and two Level II violations connected to former PG Dennis Smith Jr., per release.

I would imagine probation, scholarship reduction, and recruiting hours limited since they weren’t on probation. At most a year postseason ban. This should be fun over the next couple of years. Still betting on LSU and Louisville being the ones hammered.

Background on the NC State situation--

In last October's trial, TJ Gassnola testified that he made two payments to the family of Dennis Smith Jr., first was when DSJ was a junior in high school. Second was in 2015. Gassnola delivered $40,000 in cash to NC State asst Orlando Early’s house. Said Early then was giving it to Smith’s trainer.

I thought 6 schools were supposed to receive their notice of allegations by the end of June.

Looks like NC State is the first to get theirs.  My guess is USC, Auburn, and OK State are next.

They won't go after the big guys.

I believe UConn is on notice too. Those are two substantial programs. If I were LSU and Louisville I’d be worried.

I am guessing they have them already. They have 90 days to respond. Interesting to see what defenses we have in this.
