NCAA Hands Down Swift and Severe Punishment To USC

No, wait. scratch that.

The NCAA actually hammered IUPUI pinning the lack of institutional control scarlet letter on them. The Hoosiermakers will lose scholarships and vacate wins in six sports.

This was a apparently a really easy one for the NCAA to investigate and enforce as they and IUPUI share a hometown. IUPUI may have to also do chores around the NCAA facility after school for a few weeks.

And all of this vengeance because of a rogue academic adviser.

The NCAA infractions report placed blame for the violations on an academic adviser -- portrayed in the report as incompetent -- and his staff.


Anyway, it's funny to see the lack of institutional control tag bandied about without apartments, cars, money or handguns mentioned. Tim Floyd scoffs at Mike Garrett and the NCAA from the Chico's Tacos on Alameda St.

As for USC, post three day NCAA pow wow, they have decided that their practices will no longer be open to agents, financial advisors, pederasts, mimes or recruits with fewer than three stars. The USC missive alerts us:

"Among those not permitted access to practice are agents (such as athlete agents, marketing agents or financial advisors to athletes) or their employees, representatives or affiliates."

Awesome. England has also gone on record that they will not send Neville Chamberlain on any forthcoming diplomatic missions held in Munich. Brian wonders if this proscription will also apply to Snoop Dogg and Will Ferrell.

Mike Garrett and the NCAA, keeping the good times rolling.
