Tough times are ahead for the University of Arizona.

According to The Athletic’s Seth Davis, the Arizona program has been hit with nine total allegations of misconduct that includes FIVE Level I violations, which are considered the most severe. This news comes just a few days after the University received a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA but refused to release its contents.

Davis wrote in his report that the Level I violations “include a lack of institutional control and failure to monitor by the university; a lack of head coach control by men’s basketball coach Sean Miller; and a lack of head coach control by Augie Busch, the women’s swimming and diving coach.”

So not only is Men’s Basketball head coach Sean Miller involved, but the Women’s Swimming and Diving head coach has been roped into this for the first time, as well. On Friday, Yahoo Sports Pat Forde reported that Arizona received, and finally admitted, that the allegations exist.

The violations come on the heels of a lengthy federal investigation that involved the arrests of Arizona assistant coaches Book Richardson and Mark Phelps.

    Nothing to see here! Where have Kansas or LSU had any punishment levied against them? The same thing will happen to their basketball program. Maybe they’ll fire the Swim coach and the NCAA will then call it good. But I doubt that too. NCAA is a non-existent party when it comes to large, media known schools.

    As long as Will Wade can still be coaching at LSU, none of this means a thing. Nothing has come from the FBI investigation to amount to anything by the NCAA. Just another headline that will fade into obscurity while all these guys keep their jobs. Pitino got screwed, only 1 to take any heat. Should still be letting his recruits make it rain for the dancers in the Ville. All the rest of these bozos get to keep up their slimy ways.
