Missouri Football Receives Postseason Ban for Tutor Misconduct

The last time Kentucky played Missouri, the Tigers took a tough loss.  Today they received an even bigger blow than a loss on an untimed down.

Following an investigation into inappropriate use of an academic tutor, the NCAA has given Missouri a postseason ban for the football program following the 2019-20 season.  The baseball and softball teams will be banned from postseason play following the 2018-19 seasons.  Each program also gets a five percent scholarship reduction and recruiting limitations.

In one instance, the tutor completed an entire course for one football player.  She took math placement exams for a pair of football players and was pushed to complete coursework to ensure students would graduate.

Before you read the entire NCAA report on its investigation, consider this: former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant and Arkansas receiver Jonathan Nance transferred to Missouri this offseason.  Built to have their best team since back-to-back SEC East Titles, how will Barry Odom’s squad respond, and will Bryant even be there when the season starts August 31?

    Hopefully for Kelly Bryant he hasn’t signed his LOI yet. That would suck – transfer to a new school only to have that school immediately banned from the postseason for your one remaining year of eligibility

    Not to burst anyone’s bubble, but this happens everywhere. Literally everywhere. I had a friend at UK back in 2005, and he was ‘pushed’ to do coursework and complete class work for a high profile QB we had. When he refused, he was switched off that QB’s tutoring detail. He loved UK sports, so he didn’t report it. But it all depends on how miffed the tutor is whether or not it blows up.

    You are an idiot. I use to work for CATS fornthe football team and this never happened. The tutors are CATS are very helpful but I promise you, they were never told to do course work or take tests.

      Maybe the tutors being cats helped them get around the rules

    I’d be lying if I said I didn’t “help” some football players with their homework while at UK.

      Damn, no wonder the football team’s GPA was so low last semester.

    If I were Mizzou I would mail a copy of UNC’s findings to the NCAA with a drawing of a big middle finger up on the cover page.

    The pitfalls of not being a “blue blood”. At least the NCAA knocked out this investigation lickity split. If it was UNC this would have drug on until Luke Maye graduates in 2026.

    Can players with only one year of eligibility remaining now transfer to another school and play immediately? Thinking that the rule used to be that if the post season ban lasted until the end of a player’s eligibility they could transfer and play immediately.

    Just think of the findings of the FBI into BBall and all of those teams and coaches are still playing/coaching today. Well except 1 coach down the road who was already in trouble for another issue. It is about $$$$$$.

    EVERYTHING in Div I sports that brings in cash is about money! Don’t ever fool yourself into thinking otherwise. No one could seriously believe otherwise.

    They got louisville and that’s all that matters. Don’t care what they do with anyone else, they got UL, who care about unc. In fact, the more they let others off, it makes me laugh and be happy that they burned UL.

    They are just suppose to take notes for them . They also arrange the info in the most beneficial way , which is fine in my opinion . Then the student athlete just studies these & makes it more efficient & easy to do the class . No complaint here
