Looks like the NCAA is taking a heavy look into the Kansas Basketball program

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-Kansas vs Northeastern Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Following the FBI inserting itself into college basketball recruiting, the Kansas Basketball program continued to appear and have its name brought up, including allegations that the program paid two recruits.

Well now, it appears the NCAA is taking a look into the Kansas Basketball program and head coach Bill Self.

Shocker, right?

Yesterday, Kansas received its notice of allegations from the NCAA, including allegations of lack of institutional control, three level I violations in men’s basketball, and a head coach responsibility violation against Self.

Things aren’t looking too bright in Lawrence right now. However, this is just the beginning of the process.

Kansas will have 90 days to respond, and based off the statement released yesterday, the university is planning to fight back against the allegations. They can also appeal any assessed penalties, so this process will drag on possibly throughout the entire college basketball season.

According to the Kansas City Star, the Jayhawks could be in danger of missing out on their first postseason in 30 years.

However, if we’ve seen anything from the NCAA in investigating compliance matters, anything can happen, so stay tuned to see what happens with Kansas and Bill Self.
