Yahoo: NCAA to begin investigating schools named in federal case

Lost in last night’s Champions Classic sadness was a story from Yahoo Sports’ college basketball team about the NCAA’s investigation into several programs accused of serious violations.

According to Yahoo, the feds have given the NCAA the nod of approval to begin investigating the schools implicated in the federal investigation. Until now, the NCAA steered clear as to not interfere with the federal investigation, but now it’s on:

Sources said that the NCAA has been in constant communication with the federal government since September of 2017 when FBI agents arrested 10 men affiliated with the underbelly of basketball. And this step marks a natural progression for the NCAA’s investigative team, which has not wanted to interfere with the federal investigation, to prepare to begin its search for violations of NCAA rules.

Sources indicated that there was no formal letter or declaration from the federal government, but rather an acknowledgement that in the cases of certain schools the NCAA can now begin its own investigation process. [Yahoo!]

So if you’re at Kansas, Louisville or one of the other programs implicated, the NCAA is coming your way to snoop around for any rule-breaking.

But with the NCAA’s track record, it could be centuries before anything is actually done, if ever at all.

    What is sad is watching Bill Self on the sidelines last night. What does the NCAA have to investigate?
    The FBI has done that for them.

      About to say the same thing. The FBI did all the work and even has these people on tape or records of the text messages. Bill Self should not be coaching and the fact that Kansas is allowing him to shows that the whole program is in on it the same way UofL was.

    Let’s not fret too much. Duke’s season will be vacated in 27 years.

    I’m South Dakota state will get death penalty, KU and UL will get “probationary period”. NCAA is as corrupt as the schools they are investigating

    So if Kansas was going to pay Zion, will the NCAA look in at Duke since he committed the next day?

    Hmm – Bam was mentioned. I’m sure they’ll love looking into Cal. But turn blind eye to Puke and Coach Rat Face.

    I agree with Jimmy. NCAA is currupt. Sadly so is the KHSAA.

    Nothing to see here, move along. There’s a better chance they will penalize me than any Bill Self.
