MEN’S BASKETBALL
KANSAS: The school wasted little time issuing a forceful response to the NCAA after it received a notice of allegations with serious accusations against its storied men’s basketball program and its Hall of Fame coach.

Not only did the school deny many of the charges, and seek to diminish others, it also attempted to shift the narrative to one of victim by suggesting the NCAA is trying to make an example out of the Jayhawks.

“It’s no secret that there is tremendous pressure on the NCAA to respond to the federal court proceedings involving college basketball,” said Coach Bill Self. “Compelled to reassure member institutions and the general public that it can police its member institutions, the NCAA enforcement staff has responded in an unnecessarily aggressive manner.”

The NCAA announced in late 2017, after an FBI probe revealed a seedy underbelly of the game, the formation of a commission to make recommendations on cleaning up the sport. Now, many believe the NCAA is taking those suggestions to an extreme.
