I don't understand this penalty. How is the family supposed to pay 12k if they did not have 12k to move in the first place? They are going to have to do something shady (per NCAA) just to get the 12k.

And how is the penalty for a booster giving 12k to a recruit's family simply "sit for 12 games and give a 12k donation to a charity".

My understanding is merely being a school contributor or booster meets the standard. You do not need to be an alum although that is prime facie evidence.


You are correct.

Wonder if anything is going to happen to the coach or is he off scot free?

I think in regards to this the "he wasn't coach at the time" defense will actually work. Wiseman's violation is exclusively in regards to Penny being a booster - not a coach - and boosters aren't generally within NCAA's scope of punishment.

I'm selfishly kind of disappointed Memphis didn't try going scorched earth on the NCAA, but this is almost definitely the better result for Memphis and the AAC.

Looks like the Wiseman family might have to take a loan from Penny to pay this fine!
