The NCAA wants you to know that the day of reckoning is almost here.
Kevin Lennon, the NCAA’s vice president of Division I Governance, said in a meeting on Wednesday that notices of allegations “will be coming” for the guilty parties involved in the recent college basketball scandal.
With the FBI’s investigation into the corruption of the sport now complete, it’s time for punishments to be handed down.
“You don’t get in the way of a federal investigation,” Lennon said during a meeting of the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics. “Activity was going on during that span that was within our purview, but now that the court cases are done, now we’re in a position where you’re likely to see notices of allegations going to institutions that have violated NCAA rules, etc. I think you can anticipate notices of allegations will be coming.”
When asked of a specific timetable, Lennon was unable to give a firm answer, but did say it would come “in due time and I think fairly quickly.”
The NCAA has already launched investigations into programs such as Arizona, Kansas, Louisville, and North Carolina State following the trials in October, where they requested all documents each school submitted to the federal authorities during the trial.
We already know the serious alleged wrongdoings of Arizona, Louisville, LSU, Kansas, and North Carolina State. Schools such as Duke, North Carolina, Oregon, and UNLV, among plenty others, have also thrown their hats into the ring as other schools with various alleged involvements.
Nonetheless, we’re finally about to see just what the heck the NCAA will do about one of the biggest college sports scandals in history.
