    The NCAA continues their fine work.

    and gives Division III Caltech three years of probation and a 2012-13 postseason ban in men's basketball.

    Just....wow.

    Well done, guys.

    I don't see the reason for complaint. Caltech is the one that screwed up here, you can't blame the NCAA for following its own rules. And frankly, it's not like a postseason ban means anything to that school, since a team with one conference win in 26 years probably isn't making the NCAA tournament, so it's not like it's going to really hurt them anyway.

    No but this is another case where the NCAA looks really stupid. If what Cal Tech did violated a rule, change the rule.

    If you read the report, you'll find that the infraction involved a practice at Cal Tech where they allow their students to survey classes for three weeks before actually registering. These players were then considered not to be full-time students, thus the athletic programs using ineligible players and breaking NCAA bylaws.

    Absolutely absurd. Not a shred of common sense or even self-awareness in the NCAA's ruling here.

    It should be noted, though, that Cal Tech turned themselves in, in a way, forcing the hand of the NCAA.

    Finally, Indiana fans can rejoice now that Cal has been given a post season ban.
