Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore tied to University of Iowa violations

Updated at 6:38 p.m.

The NCAA has decided that the University of Iowa's explanation that contact between Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore and high school recruits was a coincidence is "sufficient," an Iowa spokesman said.

Steve Roe, Iowa's assistant sports information director, told TMZ that no further action would be taken against IU or the recruits.

Dude, what were you thinking?

Ashton Kutcher and the Mrs., Demi Moore,appear to have run afoul of recruiting rules governing NCAA schools when they met two high school basketball recruits at a University of Iowa football game last month, the Des Moines Register reported. University officials acknowledged the athletes' improper contact with Kutcher, who is a native Iowan and former student at UI. Rules prohibit recruits from being in contact with people who are deemed to represent a school's athletic interests.

The university reported that recruits met with former Hawkeye basketball players Reggie Evans and Dean Oliver after a pick-up game, then met Kutcher and Moore in a suite at the football stadium during the Iowa State-Iowa game on Sept. 11.

Iowa says the contact was inadvertent, which would mean that the violations were secondary. "The university is remorseful that these violations occurred," Fred Mims, associate athletic director, wrote the NCAA on Oct. 1. "We believe they were the result of sloppy management by our basketball staff."

Oh, Ashton, you may be Bruce Willis' favorite, but the NCAA isn't laughing.
