Kobe Bryant can get away with Rape, but Kabongo gets slammed for a freakin plane ticket..
Shabazz Muhammad gets like 2,000 dollars in clothes and benefits and Kabango gets slammed on a plane ticket..
Think the suspension for the whole season is to much..
They'll appeal, but I don't know what they can get back if it's for lying.
“Kansas may wind up number one in these polls, but that would be so unfair to Texas...” -- Len Elmore, 2/13/11
To that point, this team has shown signs of improving and maturing. It will be painful, but hopefully, things work out. Still, I want to see the report.
Hell no. The Athletic department needs to fight like hell for this kid.
If they don't appeal, any respect I had left for Dodds would be gone.
Imagine when this team can consistently make layups.
Chances are, he will be declared permanently ineligible for collegiate sports, making his desire to play a moot point. He should probably leave school and head for the D-League.
Texas may appeal, just as Oklahoma State did, but it will be a formality with no chance of success.
If that was what they planned to do, they would have done that.
Misleading the NCAA investigation is the reason for the suspension
Yup. If Myck really was hiding info and lying to the NCAA then he got what was coming.
Signatures are stupid. You should block them.
At the age of 20, being stupid is not an excuse. If he lied, bye and let the team move on.
I'd like to see him back at Texas for next season if true.
It's the player that can appeal and I'm sure he already has.
That's the pros... school appeals in the NCAA...
Yes, I was wrong on that. Embarrassing as a former athlete.
I understand that when the NCAA came on campus to interview Kabongo, the compliance office was notified, but no one bothered to tell anyone with the basketball program.
If true that is complete and utter bullshit. Kabongo lied, probably in a panic, but he lied, so penalize him. But you think that maybe someone from the basketball office might have told him, "just tell the truth and we will back you all the way,"
He would have been suspended, but he would have been able to play at least by conference action.
Season long suspension is a little harsh IMO.
How about 15 games? 20 games? Geez....

He didn't get a whole season for improper benefits, he got a whole season for lying to the investigators. NCAA has a reputation of really slamming anyone who tries to deceive them. If he would've 'fessed up, he'd be playing this weekend.
The true test of a man's intelligence is how much he agrees with you.
This. The punishment for lying is always worse than it would have been for the original transgression.
