Indiana Done With Sanctions?

Here's one that every other school will be following closely. Indiana, in the aftermath of Kelvin Sampson's misdoings, says it expects no further penalties from the NCAA. The Hoosiers are operating four scholarships under the NCAA limit of 13 this season, but only one of those is related to Sampson's additional, impermissible recruiting; two scholarships were withheld in anticipation of APR woes and one simply is not being used this season so that Indiana has another scholarship for an incoming player next year.

Don't forget: the NCAA is based in Indianapolis and its president, Myles Brand, used to be the head of IU.

Can the Hoosiers really get away with running off Sampson and then giving up only one scholarship after the alleged violations and a "failure to monitor" charge?

Are you kidding me? Get away with it, get away with a team of 8 players? There is one returning player from when the idiot that is Kelvin Sampson resigned last year. SMU didn't get it as bad as we have had when they got the death penalty which is what Sampson did to us. He killed our program and the AD that is responsible is on the way out as well. So don't tell me we are getting away with anything. We got hosed, FOR PHONE CALLS! USC allows there players to have houses as well as cars clothes and everything else. If the NCAA comes down any harder on IU, USC should get the death penalty.

Hey Derek, you guys brought Kelvin Sampson upon yourselves. IU hired a known cheater and then failed to put in place proper mechanisms to monitor the guy. IU deserves everything they get and more. The NCAA needs to come down harshly on IU so that schools realize that if you hire a cheater, it comes with a big, big downside if he cheats again. I agree USC deserves to be investigated and can't believe how much the Reggie Bush thing has been swept under the rug, but that has nothing to do with IU.

Patrick has it right. The NCAA needs to LOWER THE BOOM on Indiana. Scholarships and Post season play should be barred for a handful of years. Make an example of hiring cheaters. The silver lining for IU fans would be if the NCAA banned their candy striper warm up pants as well - those are B-R-U-T-A-L.
