October 12 -- Kansas avoided postseason bans on its
football and basketball programs today -- but the N-C-A-A extended
the school's self-imposed probation through October 2009 and made
more severe scholarship cuts than the school had hoped.
Kansas had placed itself on two years' probation. After the
N-C-A-A found a lack of institutional control of the school's
athletic program and extended the probation. The school's
self-imposed probation would have ended June sixth of next year.
The committee also cut three football and one men's basketball
scholarship for the 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 school years. The
school had proposed cutting one scholarship each year in football
and none in men's basketball.
