Josh Selby to Miss Nine Games

Seems like Selby’s situation was finally cleared up. News comes via Kansas’ student newspaper: “Selby, the No. 1 overall recruit in the class of 2010, must miss nine games, or 30 percent of the Kansas season, per NCAA rules. That includes the three games he has already missed. ‘I think it’s a fair ruling,’ coach Bill Self said. ‘The rules are black and white.’ He must also pay back money received in impermissible benefits, but the Kansas Athletics and NCAA press releases differ on the amount. According to Kansas’ press release, the amount is $4,607.58, while the NCAA’s press release dictates a $5,757.58 fine. Kansas associate athletic director Jim Marchiony said Kansas’ number was the correct figure. Either way, the money Selby pays back will go to a charity of his choosing. Kansas is able to appeal the ruling, but Self said it would not.”

    This seems harsh when compared to what pearl got. But at least he will finally play.

    The NCAA is great. Every time a player is fined for accepting improper cash — they pay the fine back with money accepted as improper cash.

    Excellent point NDP, why are they fining kids? They’re not getting paid to play college ball. They’re telling these kids not to take illegal benefits but yet there turn around and take money out of the kids pockets. This is a double standard and the NCAA is an absolute joke

    Another stupid inner city kid fallin for anything, If your one year of playing college ball is only worth 5G’s seriously sellin yourself short. Wondered why you wouldn’t give Terps time of day, now it’s apparent that Gary didn’t need you that bad to mess up the program again..see Rudy Archer! Have fun out in cow country and what does that say about KANSAS’ program? Congrats on making Baltimore look bad, then again you went to the Lake!
