Crazy thing is that Gary Parrish called it on his radio show two weeks ago because he had been held out of two exhibition games because "ankle issues". He said there may be more to the story, but then got a call from someone in the athletic office and was told by the NCAA that he was cleared to play. Then all of a sudden this. We went from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows in six days. Damn!
2706893, From what I read what made it a violation.

Is that penny donated 1 million dollars to the school before he was a coach, so by doing that he had become a booster according to the NCAA, so when he paid 11,500 for moving expenses for the kid it was seen as payment by a booster.

So had penny not given the school 1 million dollars before being the coach, the moving expense payment would have been legal ?

Also the school reported it back in may so it wasn’t some snitch thing. It appears that it was a technical violation.
2706899, i also heard that was the reason...
Posted by PROMO, Mon Nov-11-19 02:47 PM
and if the only reason it's illegal is because he made that donation, the NCAA should jump in front of a bus.
2706936, Fucking bullshit. Like Coach K or Calipari haven't done this.
Posted by Castro, Tue Nov-12-19 09:50 PM
2707064, Well obviously Coach Cal hasn’t done that.

2706985, I hope they play him all season long.

Thumb their noses at the NCAA. Would love if every team did this when the NCAA is on their bullshit. It'd be the end of the NCAA. My dream come true.

2707597, The NCAA is totally despicable
Posted by allStah, Thu Nov-21-19 01:09 PM
You fine a kid 11,500 for taking money for moving expenses. This is beyond logical and fair. So where is he going to get the money from?

However, you’re going to allow him to play during March madness so you can make money off of him.
2707598, what a bunch of sanctimonious bullshit.
Posted by Dr Claw, Thu Nov-21-19 01:11 PM
because he was a "booster" it's illegal? but if he was just some coach, it'd be all good? LMAOOOOOOOO
2707661, Basically
Posted by The Real, Fri Nov-22-19 11:17 AM
And all of this was done prior to Penny even being the Memphis coach.

2707600, Pardon my ncaa ignorance
Posted by Cenario, Thu Nov-21-19 01:18 PM
But the kid can get penalized bc the parebt accepted something? What if it was unbeknownst to the player? He still gets penalized?

And when they start fining the player?
2707665, I can answer these.
Posted by Frank Longo, Fri Nov-22-19 01:53 PM
>But the kid can get penalized bc the parebt accepted


>What if it was unbeknownst to the player? He still gets penalized?

Yes, though most players who get caught in this situation all say they didn't know, so it's hard to tell when that's a line and when it's the truth.

>And when they start fining the player?

That is... new, and, of course, insane.
2707673, Sheeesh, while system is dumb

2707674, racist. They not gonna let Penny be Blk Calipari. End of story.
Posted by Castro, Fri Nov-22-19 08:27 PM
2707675, I don’t think race has anything to do with it.
Posted by allStah, Fri Nov-22-19 08:51 PM
Calipari was outed at Umass and at Memphis, both programs suffered when he left.

And Pitino was terminated and stripped of a championship at Louisville.
This is just the NCAA flexing it’s authority whenever anyone tries to challenge it.

2709226, Leaving Memphis...will prepare for the draft
Posted by Dstl1, Thu Dec-19-19 02:56 PM
2709229, Good for him. Get paid. Don't let the NCAA profit from your play.
Posted by Frank Longo, Thu Dec-19-19 03:05 PM
