A journalist has no idea what the NCAA is going to do. Just because 1 level 1 infraction means 1 year post-season ban doesn't mean 5 level 1 infractions will mean a 5 year post-season ban.
Oh daaaaaaaaaaang, I didn't know about the specific tiers and penalties within each level of sanction.It depends what Tier of Level 1 each of the Sanctions are. Our had specific minimum and maximum penalties at each Tier. Ours was Level 1, Tier 2 (out of 3 Tiers) so the max was 2 years per sanction and minimum was 1 year of postseason ban. If all of their Level 1s are Tier 2 or higher, they HAVE to give them a year a piece unless there is a written in overall maximum too. I'm hoping that on the appeal, they drop our Level 1 Tier 2 to a Level 1 Tier 3, which has no minimum and a 1 year max, or even Level 2 so that they drop the Postseason ban and maybe just keep the scholarship reductions and fines.
Kansas and some of the other schools are also going to have a completely different review board than we did from what I heard. The other board was put together specifically to deal with the schools who had significant allegations against them from what I've read. That could be a good thing or a bad thing.
I legit have never heard that there are specific tiers and penalties for infractions. "Aggravation, standard, and mitigation are the three tiers of Level I violation. Aggravation has a two to four-year postseason ban, standard has a one- to two-year ban and mitigation is zero to a one-year ban." So, I say give Kansas a 20-year postseason ban.Hang'em High!!!
5 years!!! 5 Years!!! 5 Years!!!

That would mean the NCAA will have to be somewhat consistent in penalties that it imposes. That goes against everything they have ever stood for.I think that I heard the change was pretty recently. Like maybe when this stuff first started coming out a couple of years ago?
Yeah, I think OSU got screwed. They didn't have anything to gain by the wrongdoings of the former assistant. It was for his benefit only.Yeah, it’s supposed to help with the consistency. Seems like they have certain verbiage/things they look for in their investigation or in our case, the FBI’s investigation report. The main issue is that they seem to be mindlessly following it and why we got slapped for something we shouldn’t have. What I mean is that in that in the report they kept droning on with the word “bribes” like it was their golden ticket. Turns out when a coach bribes a player, it automatically becomes a Level 1, Tier 2 violation. Makes sense on the surface as 99% of the time a bribe between a coach and a recruit/player is the influence them to pick the school or even stay instead of go to the NBA. Unfortunately instead of digging a bit and seeing that the bribe wasn’t for a recruiting/competitive gain and instead for personal, monetary gain and actually hurt the university’s chance to retain said player. They just turned their brains off and tried to use certain words to manipulate the report (that they didn’t do) to fit their narrative. Systems are a great outline, but mindlessly following it can have bad side consequences too.
Larry Parkinson, the COI chief hearing officer and the director of enforcement for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, said Oklahoma State's penalties shouldn't serve as a barometer for potential penalties for other schools involved in similar infractions cases.Shocking.
Will be interesting to see if KU gets a ban for every level 1 violation. If that happens you can probably remove KU from being competitive for the next 10-20 years.
I think you’ll see more players stick it out if teams get 1 year post-season band. The last 5-10 years has shown that tournament play doesn’t really matter anymore when it comes to impacting draft stock. Now teams who aren’t allowed on national TV may have a bigger impact.
