BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Indiana University today (June 26) released the text of a further allegation that has been made against it by the NCAA Committee on Infractions. This allegation, called Allegation 6, is titled “failure to monitor,” and follows five other allegations made against the university earlier this year by the NCAA. A hearing concerning these first five allegations was held on 14 and 15 June. The text of the letter citing this new allegation can be viewed at http://www.indiana.edu/~iunews/letter.pdf. Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie said the University intends to defend itself vigorously against this additional allegation.
From the letter:
From May 25, 2006 to July 31, 2007, the university failed to monitor the men’s basketball program in terms of (a) the general monitoring required of all NCAA member institutions; and (b) the heightened monitoring required by the prior infractions history of the former head coach; and (c) the required strict adherence to those additional processes it put in place pursuant to its adoption of penalties imposed in Infractions Report 250.
The university has three options:
1. To rest on what was said at the hearing (in Seattle earlier this month).
2. To submit a response in writing and rest on that response and the presentation at the hearing.
3. To file a written response and request an in-person hearing.
