    Who could have foreseen hiring Frank Haith could turn out badly?

    Missouri vacates wins from 2013-14 season, self-imposes postseason ban

    Missouri officials announced on Wednesday that a 19-month investigation into its men's basketball program has uncovered multiple rules violations, including donors providing impermissible benefits to players and at least one prospect.

    The violations occurred under former coach Frank Haith, who is now the coach at Tulsa.

    Neither current coach Kim Anderson nor anybody on his staff were involved.

    Missouri has vacated all wins from the 2013-14 season and will lose one of its men's basketball scholarship in 2015-16 and another no later than the 2017-18 season. Beyond that, the Tigers are banned from this postseason, meaning they will not compete in the SEC Tournament or any other postseason competition sanctioned by the NCAA.

    One donor, who committed Level I violations, has been permanently disassociated.

    Another donor, who committed Level II violations, has been disassociated for two years.

    I believe Frank Haith also coached at Miami when the Ponzi scheme booster Shapiro had extended some extra benefits to those basketball players as well. I would think a repetitive problem like that would be cause for increased punishment when it happens at two schools in a row with the same coach.

    I also dislike when a program penalizes a team past the midway point in the season like this with seniors when those seniors have nothing to do with it, they have no chance at transferring out, and are basically forced to have no postseason their senior year. Same thing happened at Syracuse last year, the Seniors got screwed and they only had the sanctions hanging over them in the media for a month.

    I do not know what else the NCAA could do because if you allow Missouri to play in postseason tournaments this year when would you suggest that the postseason ban be started. I guess you could wait until next year so the seniors would not get hurt and the underclassmen could transfer out but I think we all know that is not the way that NCAA works:sad:

    They really should take a look at Tulsa and maybe give them a year or two postseason ban for hiring that coach.

    Well the article says Mizzou self-imposed the postseason ban. The NCAA has not kept Mizzou seniors from the postseason at this time, to my knowledge. Perhaps the NCAA should make a rule preventing schools from self-imposing postseason bans while the sport is in season, that way all the schools would have to deal with all the consequences of a postseason ban, and not just some of them.

    Where Frank Haith has been, there is no safe place.
