There was nothing to punish.

Penny gave money to a kid to move to Memphis so he could play on his HS team. While he was the HS coach. Not the Memphis coach. A year before he was ever offered the Memphis job and while the Memphis job wasn’t even available and he was a HS coach

He got the Memphis job a year later. Wiseman did go to Memphis but only played 2 games

Only played three games because of the question of his eligibility. All that to say, don't care. This Era of stupid ncaa toothless investigations is over. NIL killing that garbage is the best thing about it.

It was 3 games, with the 3rd coming after the ncaa ruled him ineligible.

The fact that they got this light of a punishment after openly defying the ncaa like that is shows how completely pointless the organization has made itself.

Wiseman never should have been ruled ineligible.

There was nothing to punish.

Probation is a harsh penalty for literally no offense.

Hardaway, a memphis booster, paid for wiseman, a known high level basketball recruit, to move to memphis before his junior year of high school. Wiseman then attended memphis when hardaway, who has indisputably given him money, conveniently became the coach shortly after wiseman moved to memphis.

Athletes making money on their own YouTube channels were ruled ineligible before NIL, but wiseman shouldn’t have been?

Probation is literally not a punishment.

Playing a player ruled ineligible is literally an offense.

Hardaway gave UofM a one-time gift of 1M in 2007. He was not a booster in the sense anyone uses the word.

The hell it isn't. It's a deferred sentence.

Also, I forgot that Wiseman was never ruled ineligible before he decided after three games to leave the team.

The NCAA cleared him and told UofM he was eligible the summer before the season.

Meanwhile other schools are openly paying recruits and don't get any punishment.

Three years probation, fines, vacated games, any punishment is undeserved.

Not to even fricking mention that when Wiseman was a recruit, and Hardaway was still his HS HC, he was advising Wiseman to NOT play for Tubby Smith at Memphis.

Less than an hour after news broke that the NCAA had ruled Memphis freshman James Wiseman ineligible, a Shelby County judge granted the potential top pick in the 2020 NBA draft an emergency temporary restraining order, allowing Wiseman to play Friday night against Illinois-Chicago.

You’re clearly in denial about this entire situation. Straight up lying makes you not even worth responding to.

I think lsu was off the hook when they fired wade. The ncaa wanted him nailed.
