CBS Sports' Gary Parrish Gives Perspective on Baylor Violations

Great balanced article on Baylor's violations. This guy is a vet of the industry and knows his stuff. We should definitely be spreading this around.

NCAA Enforcement (of Selectivity)

It's old but it's timeless. And as far as clichés are concerned, it's battle-tested. "There's nothing to fear but fear itself - and the I.R.S. audit." Alright, so perhaps I took some liberties....

NCAA charges Boise State with "Lack of Institutional Control"

Five sports, including the football program, have been implicated in players receiving nearly $5,000 in improper benefits, including housing and food. Most of the violations seem minor in scope, but a women's tennis player also received thousands of dollars from coaches and was also allowed to compete for BSU without being enrolled, which is a HUGE no-no. The big violation goes directly against the NCAA's core principle of the "student-athlete", and it holds this principle as absolutely sacred. Violating that principle, plus the collective mass of other violations accumulated by BSU athletics programs over the last couple of years, is apparently what led the NCAA to level the notoriously severe charge. SBNation's Boise State site, One Bronco Nation Under God, has a very good rundown of the major stories surrounding the violations, along with many responses that recent Florida State fans might find quite familiar. Highlights: The Charges The football team self-reported violations of housing rules that happened from 2004-08. Coach Petersen's 2009 solution-coaches arranging summer housing for incoming freshmen-was itself a violation of NCAA housing rules. The big one: The timeline of the Women's Tennis eligibility incident. The scope of the wrongdoing is breathtaking.

Former Miami booster Nevin Shapiro alleges major violations in football program.

He's a convicted criminal, and an originator of a Ponzi scheme, so take his word lightly.

U Con...err, UConn Cited for 8 Violations

Not sure what their punishment will be, but this makes me happy. I hate Calhoun ever since he pulled that crap with Rudy Gay. I hope they get slammed.

Uh oh.

The Springfield (Mo.) News-Leader alleged Monday that Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self might have had inappropriate contact over the weekend with John Wall, a 6-foot-4 point guard currently rated as the nation’s top high school recruit. According to a column that ran in Monday’s edition of the paper, Self approached Wall, who was playing in a tournament in Springfield, after a game and said, "Johnny, great win man. You really played well."

KU Sports Whoops. I doubt anything will come out of such a minor incident, but it provides some fodder for the rival schools, and it just isn't good for the national perception. By the way, here is the actual newspaper article that spells out the infraction.
