NCAA Pulls 2 SuC Hoops Scholies For Academics Issues

USA Today:

The NCAA on Tuesday hit more than 200 college sports teams with scholarship reductions and other sanctions because of academic shortcomings.

Among them: Sweet 16 qualifier Tennessee and five other teams coming off NCAA appearances in men's basketball and two Bowl Championship Series entrants, Kansas and Hawaii, in football.

The programs posted subpar Academic Progress Rates (APRs), which have been computed by the NCAA for the past four years and hinge on retaining players and keeping them academically eligible. Twenty-six teams -- including 20 in the longtime problem sports of men's basketball, football and baseball -- were flagged as chronic underperformers and handed stiffer penalties including reductions in practice time.

Among the programs that failed to meet APRs: Timmeh's gapclosers:

 

In men's basketball: Fifty-three programs -- about one in every six in Division I -- were sanctioned, including 39 that drew actual penalties. Tennessee was among those getting "warning-shot" cuts of one or two scholarships. So were 2008 NCAA tournament participants Purdue, Kansas State, Southern California, South Alabama and Portland State.

So whose scholarship Timmeh going to pull? Lil Romeos?

Guess this is what happens when you fill a program with "student athletes" with diplomas from the internets. lololololol
