UCONN dealing with “March Madness”

In the midst of the “March Madness” tournament, UCONN mens basketball deals with alleged recruiting violations.

Professor McCann comments about the situation in the Hartford Current:

University of Vermont law Professor Michael McCann, who specializes in sports law and writes a column for SI.com, said that the NCAA could come down hard on UConn. The NCAA could impose recruiting restrictions or take away scholarships, but it was unlikely to force UConn to forfeit games because Miles did not play.

“I think it’s potentially major, certainly if Calhoun was involved or had knowledge of what was going on,” McCann said. “UConn could argue that what Nochimson did was so outside the boundaries of his work with UConn or his association with UConn that he really was not acting on behalf of UConn. But I think it’s a hard argument to make because his actions, if they’re true, benefited UConn. I think the real question is, how high up the chain did these transgressions go?”
