Sources: Calhoun to be cited, no postseason ban

The NCAA will hold a press conference at 3 p.m. today in which it will announce the fate it's put upon the Connecticut men's basketball program.

ESPN.com's Andy Katz has a source telling him Jim Calhoun will be cited for "failing to create an atmosphere of compliance" amid the Nate Miles controversy. That story was first broken after an investigation was done by Yahoo! Sports nearly two years ago.

Gary Parrish has confirmed Katz's initial report, which also states UConn assistant Beau Archibald will be given a two-year show-cause. What's a show-cause? It basically means Archibald cannot be hired by anyone at the NCAA level without the Committee on Infractions' say-so. (He's basically put on the shelf for two years, something some believe may happen to Bruce Pearl in some capacity eventually.) Calhoun's name will be draped over this, but it's not looking like the Huskies will get slammed by the NCAA.

UConn is not expected to be dealt any sort of postseason ban. That harsh punishment could've been avoided due to the fact the Huskies cutting themsleves via two years worth a probation and docking a scholarship for this season and next.

On the surface, and before everything goes public on behalf of the NCAA, this looks like UConn's going to get out of this mess without too many gashes; a multitude of scrapes is more like it.

Check back in with us just after 3 p.m., when we'll be updating the blog with news and commentary.

Come on, that post was more full of B.S. than any I have ever written. Come on. I'm a Huskie fan for crying out loud, he made a ton of call to Nochimson. He got off easy... Not as Easy as Cam Newton though.

I guess that the NCAA did not want things to happen to UCONN like what has happened to Indiana. It will be awhile before IU recovers from the Sampson era, if they ever recover, so they didn't want poor UCONN to suffer through the dismal years of rebuilding.

So what happens to Tennessee? I bet the hammer will fall on them why because the media (espn,DICK vitlale) have made it there personal obligation to trash Bruce Pearl every telecast all the while keeping the uconn investigation hush-hush. Even when the two played earlier this year all the attention was kept on Pearl and Tennesse even though uconn's infractions were far worse than Tennesse's. The self imposed actions taken by Tennessee (no recruiting for Pearl 1 year a 1.75 million reduction in pay and 6 month ban on recruiting for two assistant's) also SEC commishiner Mike the slime Slive enforced an 8 game conference suspension on Pearl which he has already had to serve all of wich adds up to more than the NCAA slaped on one of there beloved big east bedmates.

Does anyone have oversight of the NCAA? The United States federal deficit is trillions of dollars and the NCAA is tax-exempt. Are you? I pay 25% -- why not the NCAA?

KingBishop, from one UCONN fan to another, if you think Calhoun had no knowledge of this, you're flat out crazy.

I feel this is a perfect punishment for the allegations. After all, Calhoun did not have any knowledge of any wrong doing. All the allegations for the most part were committed because of Josh Nochimson and Beau Archibald. The way the University handled the situation after it came to light is also a big reason for the lenient penalty, UConn took immediate action by taking away Archibald's job and taking away scholarships. I think the NCAA handled this situation in a manner that will make all us Huskie fans happy......LOL... Go Huskies!!! In all honesty after the Cam Newton situation the NCAA is going to have to go easy on all teams committing infractions.

Maybe it's because the see that the NCAA is a filthy whore of an institution. Is there a more corrupt and dirty entity than the NCAA? If so, tell me who it is.

I'm sure the NCAA will issue a full apology to Calhoun and UConn at their useless press conference. Maybe they can bring him his slippers in their mouths and curl up at his feet. What an absolute joke this is, and we wonder why kids take money from boosters. Maybe it's because the see that the NCAA is a filthy whore of an institution. Is there a more corrupt and dirty entity than the NCAA? If so, tell me who it is.

If it were Soth Alabama College for the Blind, the NCAA would put the school on seven years' probation and take away four scholies. They're afraid of Calhoun for some reason. Maybe they're afraid he'll drop dead.
