KU on Probation

You can read more complete points here, but below you can read the straight dish on what the actual consequences are. The good news is that none of the violations have occurred under Self's watch, and that the violations that occurred in the men's basketball program were probably secondary, pending the NCAA's verification of the internal investigation.
