Syracuse Self-imposed Ban

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff:

I am writing to give you advance notice that the University is announcing today it has self-imposed a one-year post-season ban for the menís basketball 2014-15 season as part of its case pending before the NCAA Committee on Infractions.

This one-year ban includes the ACC Tournament and any additional post-season tournaments such as the NCAA Menís Division I Basketball Tournament and the National Invitational Tournament (NIT). I made this decision in consultation with the Board of Trustees Athletics Committee and with the support of Athletics Director Daryl Gross and Menís Basketball Head Coach Jim Boeheim. This was a difficult decision but one we believe appropriate given the facts associated with the NCAA investigation.

Syracuseís history demonstrates a strong commitment to integrity, responsibility and fairness, values I have personally observed in practice many times since becoming Chancellor last year. The University has taken this matter seriously and worked with the NCAA for nearly eight years to investigate and address potential rules violations. The process has been exhaustive.

We have taken responsibility for past violations and worked hard to ensure they are not repeated. We believe these voluntary sanctions are consistent with those imposed on other NCAA schools in similar cases. I have included below a copy of the University announcement that will be issued shortly.

I am disappointed for our current menís basketball players who must shoulder this post-season ban as a result of things that occurred years ago. I also recognize that not participating in post-season play will be disappointing for you and other Orange supporters. However, we look forward to moving past this matter and I am confident the menís basketball program will be strong and successful both on the court and in the classroom in the years ahead.

Sincerely,

Chancellor Kent Syverud

I like the move.

Picking a down year to "punish" yourself from being one and done in the tournament. 

I have to believe if they are 22-0 they would not be talking about a voluntary ban.

If it ends up being the only sanctions its a good move for sure. Can imagine they would "voluntarily" take a ban unless some type of deal had been worked out with the NCAA.

It's not certain they would have even made the tourneyment this year.
