    Selby suspended 9 games

    NCAA rules Kansas freshman Josh Selby can play in December - ESPN


    The NCAA on Friday announced Kansas freshman Josh Selby, one of the nation's top recruits, must sit out nine games and repay the $5,757.58 he received through impermissible benefits to the charity of his choice. Kansas said the true amount was $4,607.58.
    A college athlete has to repay 6 grand, makes sense.

    Wonder where he'll get that money?

    Is it worse to commit a violation in order to pay back the money you took initially?

    Maybe they'll let him float a check, or pay using several different credit cards?

    Re: Selby suspended 9 games

    I kinda wonder what the point of Kansas' revised amount. If the NCAA says that he needs to pay a certain amount because that's what came up in their investigation, isn't that what he has to pay? If Kansas feels that it is lower, shouldn't that have been discussed earlier? Otherwise, just be glad that he can play in conference games and shut your mouth.

    Re: Selby suspended 9 games

    Why is having teammates that take money more punishable than actually taking money?

    What a joke.

    I presume that the NCAA knew Lucca was a d-bag.

    I think it has something to do with the exchange rate. Paying European players is a lot worse. Also, he went to Kansas. And we all know how much Kansas needs good players, I mean they're having to "give" tickets away to recruit's coaches.

    Haha. Regardless, there have been other players that have had to pay back money, and other Europeans that have had to sit out due to teammates.

    Rule need to be more clear.

    Surprised he can play this year. Thought NCAA was tough on things like this.

    The NCAA Headquarters may have moved out of Kansas, but we all know where their allegiance is.

    Re: Selby suspended 9 games

    I'm just as confused as you guys. The 9 games I understand; it's 30% of the games, which is about as bright-line of a rule as you'll get from the NCAA. But, as far as I've seen, there's been no explanation where the 5,757 dollars and 58 cents figure came from. And why is KU's figure $1,150 less, to the cent, than the NCAA's figure?

    The NCAA is going to look pretty bad if they don't come out and explain all of this, in my opinion. Parrish, for one, has already jumped all over it - In Selby's case, reward clearly outweighs risk - NCAA Division I Mens Basketball - CBSSports.com

    And, still, I haven't seen anything that, specifically, said what Josh did wrong. All I've heard is the vague term, "impermissible benefits." Perhaps that information is coming, but I would assume they would give a justification right away when telling a kid he has to miss 9 games and pay 6 grand.

    I guess the Human Fund (Money for People) is about to get $5757.58 richer. Maybe Cecil Newton will give Josh a loan to pay it off.

    That's how much KU has already covered for him.

    They'll just give him some of those tickets that are unaccounted for and let him sell them.

    Re: Selby suspended 9 games

    Selby won't pay a dime of that fine. If this was any other school this would have been a year long suspension. Absolutely ridiculous.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.
