    I expect that Cleveland State will be punished most severely for this.

    After the Final 4, KU will suspend their whole team and forfeit all wins for the following 6 months.

    I would imagine the schools involved get a stern talkin' to and bed without dinner.

    So in other words, we know you cheated, you know you cheated, everyone knows you cheated, but we are going to not do anything about it for so long that hopefully people forget about it because we dont actually want to pretend to care.

    The NCAA will probably give them extra benefits for being the "victim" in all this.

    Iowa State will probably be fined $25,000.

    DeSousa has been held out all season so far. The NCAA is basically punishing KU by doing nothing.

    They are not going to do anything until after the NCAA Tournament because that is their massive money maker. Take away some of those schools (especially Kansas) and that hurts their product/viewership and hurts their bank account.

    That's the most sympathy I can muster.

    They will do stuff pending how each of the teams does in the tourney. IF they flame out in the round of 32. All games will be foreited. If they make It to the finals. The investigation will determine there is nothing they can do.

    I don’t have a problem with it for two reasons, one is due process for those accused and second, it will permit innocent players to transfer without penalty after the season and have penalized teams sit out future NCAA tourney(s) with stripped down rosters. That will be more penal to cheaters like the KU Chickens.

    Screw that. I'm waiting for the heaviest hammer to fall on us. They've got to make an example out of someone. Calling it right now, we get roped in the deepest of everyone after news drops about when Jiri Hubalek's host family hooked him up with a free pair of Adidas sneakers.

    I agree, they should just declare him ineligible (because he should be) and be done with it. Also, vacate any wins that he played in last year.

    The FBI investogayion revealed a possible $2,000 payment. The punishment for that is typically 5 games. Josh Selby got 9 games for about $4,000.

    The rumored payment from a Maryland booster has zero actual evidence surrounding it. Kinda absurd to punish someone solely because some guy said "I heard this happened". If an ISU player was held out for such absurdity, I doubt you would be pleased.

    It's not every team that can pull reference punishments for impermissible benefits without having to look at other teams. Wasn't there some money to pay back Maryland that was in addition to the $2000?

    Poor KU BBall, they're being targeted. I mean there is no precedence for them paying athletes before, as Random Fan pointed out, Selby. But, even if they had, it didn't amount to more than 10% of their total annual athletic department expenditures.https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/news/2018/05/14/how-does-ku-s-sports-budget-compare-with-that-of.amp.html
    Worst case scenario they would have had to forfeit 10 games and we'll make those during the regular season. So all the postseason victories count, and by the way let's be honest. We all know that most of that revenue for them was generated by the football team, right.
