FILE - In this March 21, 2019, file photo, Kansas head coach Bill Self reacts in the first half during a first round men's college basketball game against Northeastern in the NCAA Tournament in Salt Lake City. A person familiar with the situation says the University of Kansas received a notice of allegations from the NCAA on Monday, Sept. 23, 2019, that alleges significant violations within its storied men's basketball program. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither the NCAA nor the school had announced the notice, which was first reported by Yahoo Sports.

SALT LAKE CITY — The NCAA Selection Committee has spoken, seeding 64 teams for the tournament that starts Thursday. What if the Committee on Infractions had a say, too? Records would still matter — but not the sort compiled during the regular season. Rap sheets, academic fraud, bad sportsmanship, terrible PR, good, old-fashioned bribes, the dreaded "lack of institutional control" — you could pretty much fill out an entire bracket simply listing what many of these teams have gotten wrong over the past months, years and decades. Of course, March Madness, which tips off Thursday with 16 games, has a way of pushing all that bad news to the back burner. "What sells sports are hype and hope, and you really can't find a better example of both than the NCAA Tournament," says marketing guru Joe Favorito. But first, let's take our medicine. Here's a bracket-style review of the pain and malfeasance that some of the schools in this year's March Madness bracket have inflicted on … [Read more...] about Busted: NCAA bracket filled with tales of transgression
