NCAA comes down hard on Syracuse. Related: Thomas Bryant is visiting IU this weekend.


The NCAA came down with a stern ruling on Syracuse's infractions regarding "enforcement of procedures for students who tested positive for banned substances" over a 10-year period. A number of penalties were doled out, most notably a loss of 12 scholarships (3 per year for 4 years). Also of note and not unrelated, Thomas Bryant will be taking a visit to Bloomington this weekend for the MSU game. Indiana and Syracuse were both in his final batch of schools.
