Found November 07, 2012 on Inside the Hall:
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.

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

Crean: Abell not ‘scratching surface of how good he can be’

Depth has been cited as one of the many reasons Indiana is the preseason pick to win the national championship. But Tom Crean has been careful in the preseason to not prematurely anoint his team as deep until he can substitute without experiencing much of a drop off in production and consistency. A big piece to establishing that consistency from the bench is sophomore guard Remy...

With last Thursday’s game against Indiana Wesleyan not hitting the Big Ten Network until Wednesday, the inaugural Film Session comes a little late this season. Onwards.

One word sums up NCAA’s ruling: absurd

There have some terrible acts committed under the watch of the NCAA over the years, acts that make you question the integrity of college athletics. Reggie Bush’s name comes to mind.
