NCAA releases text of further allegation against IU


From the e-mail inbox:

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Indiana University today (June 26) released the text of a further allegation that has been made against it by the NCAA Committee on Infractions. This allegation, called Allegation 6, is titled “failure to monitor,” and follows five other allegations made against the university earlier this year by the NCAA. A hearing concerning these first five allegations was held on 14 and 15 June. The text of the letter citing this new allegation can be viewed at http://www.indiana.edu/~iunews/letter.pdf. Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie said the University intends to defend itself vigorously against this additional allegation.

From the letter:

From May 25, 2006 to July 31, 2007, the university failed to monitor the men’s basketball program in terms of (a) the general monitoring required of all NCAA member institutions; and (b) the heightened monitoring required by the prior infractions history of the former head coach; and (c) the required strict adherence to those additional processes it put in place pursuant to its adoption of penalties imposed in Infractions Report 250.

The university has three options:

1. To rest on what was said at the hearing (in Seattle earlier this month).

2. To submit a response in writing and rest on that response and the presentation at the hearing.

3. To file a written response and request an in-person hearing.

    Am I confused, but is it a new finding that IU didn’t monitor the men’s basketball program? Isn’t that just a restating of what this whole mess has been about for the last year? I am beginning to think the NCAA intends to dole out some hefty sanctions. Sure hope not though. Looking forward to basketball season to start so we can get this behind us!

    Ah crap… We’d all better prepare to have the NCAA hammer fall down on our butts

    I think it’s kinda obvious the University failed to monitor the situation to begin with, otherwise we wouldn’t be in the mess we’re in today.

    Also, someone please explain why the heck the meetings were held in Washington State when the freakin’ NCAA is headquartered in Indianapolis!!

    Will there be a live video feed of the press conference, HT?

    Hoosierfan: I asked the same question. Think of the expense to fly everyone out there when they could have loaded up the ol’ team bus and headed to Indy.

    The IU administration brought all of this on themselves.

    They found a way to get rid of Bob Knight — an admittedly controversial figure — and then made ridiculous promises to Davis, whom they later paid-off to get him to leave.

    Then they hired a coach who was already in trouble with the NCAA shortly after paying off an athletic director to get him to leave.

    Then they paid-off Sampson to get him to leave.

    Is Greenspan being paid-off to leave as well?

    Bob Knight, for all his shortcomings, ran a squeaking-clean program and his players graduated. Who since can make that claim?

    Marc………I hope his name is Tom Crean.

    Man, this is awful. How about Alan Greenspan for the new AD. He is a numbers man and maybe, just maybe, he is honest.

    Sounds like the ncAAss chose to believe KS ‘s defense of himself breaking the rules/ restrictions [its the compliance office who screwed up!] and decided to attach 1 more allegation just in case anyone thought IU was free and clear and it was KS’s fault. Greenspan leaves, does this mean the former head of compliance witch Jennifer [who got promoted] gets her walking papers also, or does title 9 protect all the women in the athletics office.

    Greenspan honest? Yeah, sure. The honesty of idiocy. He should have been fired months ago. I’ll gladly accept his “resignation”
    now, though. The entire IU administration is culpable here. They tried to assassinate IU basketball.

    I don’t have the slightest idea of what Doug T. is talking about, nor what it has to do with IU basketball.
