D-Day nears...

IU will go before the NCAA infractions committee next weekend, hoping the proverbial book will not be thrown at them for issues related to the basketball program.

A summary of the NCAA's case was released Thursday. Media accounts are available here and here (including a pdf of the summary).

According to reports, the summary includes transcripts of three-way phone calls as well as testimony from potential recruits about what subjects were discussed. Former basketball coach Kelvin Sampson has disputed some of the claims.

IU thinks its self-imposed sanctions are enough and its decades-long clean record should count for something. The fate of next season and beyond is in NCAA's hands. Hopefully, they don't make an example of us.
