Default Two Indiana Hoosier players miss 9 games

NCAA officials determined that Jurkin and Perea accepted approximately $6,000 and $8,000, respectively, in impermissible benefits from an Indiana University booster while they were in high school. The benefits included plane tickets, meals, housing, a laptop, cellphone and clothing.

Meh, not really. They're kind of bullshit sanctions. I haven't read up on it too much but the guy gave like 150 bucks to IU's program back in the 80s, so he's a "booster." Now he runs an AAU type program that gets kids out of Africa and South America to the States for school and whatnot. The "booster" was their legal guardian here in the states from what I understand, hence plane tix and housing and all that stuff.

The suspensions, OK, whatever. But the students have to donate money to charity, one of them like $1500 and he's a kid from like the slums of Colombia. So forget paying the players, now the players gotta pay to play.

IU can eat a fat dick, but the NCAA can eat a fatter one.

i agree with you here. NCAA toes a fine line between investigation and full out witchhunt with these foreign players.

as for basketball, this wont really affect IU. I think this is just a chance for the media to finally shed some negative light on the team this year lol

They should ban the school from the postseason for the kids actions

The NCAA is full of itself and Peter Jurkin is a superb name.
