Podcast on the Brink: Discussing the NCAA’s ruling

Another season is upon us, and so, too, is another controversy.

Just days before IU is set to take on Bryant in the regular-season opener, the NCAA handed down nine-game suspensions to freshmen Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Peter Jurkin for taking “impermissible benefits” from A-HOPE founder and Indiana Elite coach Mark Adams, who was deemed an IU booster.

Herald-Times beat man Dustin Dopirak and Bylaw Blog creator John Infante join hosts Matt Dollinger and Greg Rosenstein to discuss the news and take an in-depth look at the NCAA’s handling of the case and IU’s future.

Among the topics discussed on this week’s show:

· Why the nine-game suspensions occurred
· What the decision means for IU’s future relationship with Mark
Adams and the A-HOPE program
· How both Mosquera-Perea and Jurkin can pay their fines
· The likelihood of IU winning an appeal with the NCAA
· Impact on the Hoosiers’ frontcourt for the first nine games of the season
· The handling of the Mosquera-Perea/Jurkin case by IU’s compliance staff in the wake of Kelvin Sampson

    Glad you guys were able to get a little of your political thoughts in this podcast. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to get that on an IU basketball site.

    Anybody know if its possible for the charity of their choice to be Mark Adam’s A-Hope Foundation? Alex? I think that would be a great way to stand up to the NCAA a bit

    Just acknowledging there was an election last night in the first 30 seconds. I’m guessing you weren’t a big fan of our debate podcast either. We’ll try and keep it clean next time!

    No comment on how crooked the NCAA is. Now I know you won’t post this but I said it anyway!!

    Well after getting all the information i just have to say wow. It does not surprise me but how can two kids be punished for something we worked with the NCAA on and now they punish them for doing something wrong that the NCAA said it was okay? Makes you scratch your head we told the NCAA about what happen we have been doing the right thing. I think it time for the NCAA to do theirs that is reinstate this kids and let them play. What happened was over twenty years ago.”Come on MAN” geez these kids were not born yet and though punishing them for something they did not even do. I know NCAA has to go case by case but If lets say someone bought a little plastic football for his grandson and then had that same grandson go to the college of his choice oh better not cause he would have to sit nine or more games cause grandpa bought him a plastic football when he was 3. Why am i not getting this. It does not make any sense

    To create a enonomic hardship on these kids is wrong! What ever the intentions of the NCAA their way out of bounds on this, intentional foul!!!

  • IUDan

    So I’ll bite . . .what can we do here? I have to say this is ridiculous and a complete overreach by the NCAA – how can we influence them?

    Isn’t the real problem that no I-HOPE player can come to IU who received monetary benefits without some penalty being levied? Please tell me I’m wrong!

    First off, great podcast. I really enjoy listening to these.
    The NCAA’s ruling is ridiculous. Dan Dakich said on his show that when cooperate with the NCAA, you get slapped. But when you hide from the NCAA, you don’t get caught. It seems that Dakich is exactly right in this case. There are so many dirty programs all over the country but the NCAA decides to punish two innocent student-athletes for accepting living necessities in a new country. CTC better close the Varsity Shop if he wants to keep recruiting in-state. What a joke.

    HannerTime & Peter just experienced an american bureaucracy @ its worst. The ‘greatest’ country on the planet just pissed on 2 foreigners trying to live the american dream! Pathetic, absurd, outrageous … words that describe the NCAA (Nazis can’t achieve anything).
    Let the appeal and media attentiion on this be successful in reducing the suspension to 3 games. GO HOOSIERS!

  • Oldguyy

    It did serve to diminish your credibility.

    ncaa rules probably cover only domestic recruiting. if schools go fishing overseas, how do you control it? Rich schools can afford what it takes to engage in this recruiting, poorer schools are at a disadvantage. That disadvantage must be at the heart of ncaa concerns.
