PURDUE MENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Big Ten teams report secondary violations




Date: 9/19/1997

    A recent article in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette analyzed the Big 10 schools and how many violations they had reported to the NCAA. The paper contacted all the Big10 schools. Iowa, Northwestern and Penn State refused to provide information. Of the 8 universities that did respond, here is the number of violations each reported to the NCAA...

    Wisconsin     16          1                 3
    
    These statistics are for the period between 10/93 and 10/96. 17 of Purdue's violations were a result of the NCAA investigation of Linn Dunn's program in 1994. Another violation that affected many Purdue sports was the holding of walkon tryouts before the official beginning of each sport's season. Purdue argued that the walkon candidates were not considered "student athletes" at that point and therefore did not have to wait until the beginning of the sport's season. The NCAA ruled that any prospect becomes a "student athlete" the second he or she begins such a tryout regardless if they are on scholarship or not and regardless of whether they are eventually chosen for the team. The Big10 office responded by sending a note to all the universities clarifying the definition. It is unknown whether any of the other violations at the other Big10 universites were a result of this case.
