Larry Brown is in trouble again

Larry Brown is in trouble with the NCAA once again. This time, it’s at SMU, where Brown will be suspended 30 percent of the team’s games this upcoming season. The program also received a 2016 postseason ban, making Brown 3-for-3 on postseason bans as a college basketball head coach. He was hit with penalties at UCLA and Kansas as well.

The list goes on: Coach Cal’s friend and mentor received a two-year show cause penalty and the Mustangs lose three scholarships a year over the next three years, plus many other recruiting restrictions.

It all comes after an investigation of Keith Frazier, a four-star guard signed by Brown in the 2013 recruiting class. The NCAA found that an administrative assistant took online courses for Frazier to assist with his eligibility. Frazier was declared academically ineligible last season.

SMU will vacate wins and Brown, though not named directly in the violation, took a big hit for not reporting the violation.

    Maybe don’t have Larry Brown so visibly on the Calipari camp going forward? I know Cal is loyal, but man, Brown seems like a pretty disliked guy by his former players and seems even dirtier than people accused Cal of being.

    Wow, that’s pretty harsh penalties for only “one” player. UNC will have to close their athletic department when the NCAA goes through the many years and many players that received their fraudulent academic credits. Or does UNC get a pass?

    We had to take our rage out on SMU for what UNC did. This should be a warning to all small Division 1 schools–you will pay the price for UNC cheating because we care about STUDENT athletes (and money, lots and lots and lots of money).

    UNC should get a minimum 5years post season ban in b-ball, or the whole
    NCAA is a crock of shine-ola.

    I still dont get how UNC hasnt been given the hammer. If it were UK the death penalty would have occured. The NCAA is a joke.

    UK was in violation in Cal’s 1st. or 2nd. year when Brown came and helped the team with their defense.Unless you want to call “Jorts” a liar.He made the statement that Brown was a great help to the team.UK is like UNC,above the NCAA.

    Here we go again beating this dead horse. The NCAA does whatever it pleases to whom ever it pleases and looks the other way when it wants. It is above fair and equal treatment .It’s pimple face president is an modern day Judge Roy Beam .It is envoled in an income that could run most small countrys and it’s back door has never been questioned .This NC issue and SMU issue should open the eyes of the DOJ to look into day to day operations of the NCAA. I mean when punishment to only given to schools you don’t like and when it’s one you like opps temp blindness , being ONE and add the millions on millions being spent blow the surface and don’t you question where this blindness is in reality eye site being blocked by an big pile of money? This is nothing an Audit from the DOJ and IRS couldn’t clear up.. I’m sorry but when you nail an player to the cross because he got an free weekend rental car and turn your head to fake classes ,fake grades, use of drugs, and smack them on the hand whats wrong with that picture? Look at the Enos Kanter issue come on such BS.I am sick of all the news and the same ole song and dance .By the way if Enos had been at NC he would have played and been given his grades also.
