Hollowell reinstated; IU reports secondary violation

11 comments by   |   Sunday, December 30, 2012 - 5:29 pm EDT

Indiana released a statement saying Jeremy Hollowell has been reinstated and will play in Monday’s game, and that the NCAA accepted a self-reported secondary violation. No more details were given. The release follows.

Earlier today we were advised by the NCAA that they have accepted our self-reported secondary violation involving Jeremy Hollowell and, consistent with our proposal, immediately reinstated his eligibility. He will travel with the rest of the team to Iowa and be eligible to play in that game and all other games going forward. I would like to thank the NCAA for its assistance and responsiveness, especially during this holiday season when their office is officially closed. I also thank Jeremy Hollowell and his mother Chandra Lockett who raised this issue and have continued to be forthright and forthcoming throughout this matter. Finally, I thank our athletic department and men’s basketball staff who worked diligently and professionally to help bring this to a positive conclusion.  I am proud of how Indiana University has handled this situation. We will release the details of this matter later this week. Until then we will have no further comment.

Good, wouldn’t want to know the details and stop all speculation heading into their first B1G game…

Awesome! Welcome back Jeremy! Glad to have you back Big 10 play. Hopefully Creek can make it back sometime this year.

I am starting to see a trend here that I don’t like.

What trend is that?

That there is a bizarre system in place with gray areas, unevenly applied rules, rules that make no sense, and 1,000,000 different actors in place that can, and try to, effect the eligibility of 17 year old boys?

Or are you uncomfortable with the trend where IU self-reports secondary violations that don’t occur with the program, but with recruits and actors before they get to IU and are outside of the program?

Or are you uncomfortable with the fact that all of IU’s players have now been cleared by the NCAA and are eligible to play?

Or are you uncomfortable with the trend of highly-ranked recruits, rising potential for success within the program, rising GPA’s, and more players graduating early and earning Master’s Degrees within their 4 year scholarships?

Please tell me the trend you are wary of…

Increase in violations period. Small, self reported or what ever. I don’t want to see any violations period. Plus more recruits than scholarships available. That doesn’t bother anyone? Just looks shady to someone on the outside. But who cares about the image as long as we win! Don’t mean to offend anyone just would like for I U To be squeaky clean.

I bet there isn’t a school in the entire country with “zero” violations.

Even Knight had them.

IU self reported St. Steve Alford for a secondary violation and benched him for a game or two.

I would be concerned if there were any concerning violations… But none of them have anything to do with IU… It’s all stuff that has NOTHING to do with IU.

This last one doesn’t even appear to have anything to do with the kid…

If it has nothing to do with I U. Then why must they report it. Even small, they must report it due to previous transgressions. Still concerns me about the scholarship numbers. That bite us n the butt at one point. Just my opinion

It has nothing to do with IU, because by the sounds of it, this is something that the Hollowell family would have had to report regardless of where Jeremy went to school…

IU reports because they want to be on the up-and-up…

Please show me examples of where the version has hurt other programs, and then I’ll start understanding that concern.
