The "booster" was their legal guardian here in the states from what I understand, hence plane tix and housing and all that stuff.
The suspensions, OK, whatever. But the students have to donate money to charity, one of them like $1500 and he's a kid from like the slums of Colombia. So forget paying the players, now the players gotta pay to play.
IU can eat a fat dick, but the NCAA can eat a fatter one.
i agree with you here. NCAA toes a fine line between investigation and full out witchhunt with these foreign players.
as for basketball, this wont really affect IU. I think this is just a chance for the media to finally shed some negative light on the team this year lol
