Re: Kansas, with 30 years straight in the tournament, 5 NC games and 2 titles, it's hard to imagine that a potential 1 year postseason ban is even a fly on the windshield.

Whether it’s fabricated or not, I respect Boyton’s public statement saying they will weigh all options for Cunningham, many of which include leaving OkState. Something like: “I didn’t recruit him for 4 years to suddenly abandon what’s best for him”
Yeah, given that it is a personal gain indictment (Lamont getting " commission" from agent) and not a recruiting violation, I think OSU and Boynton are getting a raw deal. Boynton seems like a standup guy.

It will be interesting to see this play out. Wouldn't be surprised to see this penalty thrown out or lessened at some point.

If there's ever a time to give out or get hit with a 1 year post-reason ban, etc., it would be during a global pandemic.

So, one of the previous tweets mentioned Auburn...I am an oldster who holds a grudge like nobody’s business...if they get tagged, is it finally the nail in Satan’s proverbial coffin?
They will be given a 1 yr tournament ban retroactively.

Kansas basketball coach Bill Self considering legal action vs. NCAA, attorney says

The best defense is a good offense.

This is just like Anthony Davis's Father threatening to sue the Sun Times (or whomever it was).
