Nice pick-up. According to ESPN.com , Holloway also received offers from Gonzaga, Virginia, St. John's and Nevada.

Get off Sampson's back and get a life.
OF COURSE the report is going to say that. The investigation was paid for by IU $$$$ and likely performed by IU grads with likely instructions to spin all information in IU's favor. Lets wait an see how the NCAA views it.

Kid can't be too smart going to IU when Sampson has a good chance of not coaching at IU or anywhere for a year or more, Secondary infractions become major infractions when you do it again when you are on probation.

any relation to former seton hall pg from late 90's Shaheen Holloway. With getting NY kids looks like Sampson is trying to step in on Pitino's turf.

Best in school history doesn't mean much when it's Purdue.

I can remember back to when Indiana kids played at IU for 4 years (or up to what seemed like 6 years for Stu Robinson and Winston Morgan).

It cracks me up to think that a coach working too hard to recruit players the right way (read here: not bribing them) is a black spot to the program, but Bobby Knight isn't. I hate to break it to the rednecks out there, but the guy is known for throwing a chair on the court and assaulting a student, not the 1976 season.
Way to go Sampson with the strong recruiting - and those of us with a full set of teeth support you.
Classy, real classy. Maybe we should take those 3 banners down?

1) The IU NY pipeline just resigned. 2) The kid is in a prep school in Ohio, and 3) someone better look at the cancelled checks to that prep school. I bet Sampson's fingerprints are all over them.
Oh and I love this quote from rivals.com
"Coach Matt Painter landed a five-man recruiting class that could be one of the best in school history. It features four four-star prospects and was ranked seventh nationally by Rivals.com , ahead of the classes at such schools as Duke, Indiana, Memphis, UCLA, Villanova and Kentucky"
Of course it's the best class in school history. The bar isn't all that high......

Wow. According to Rivals Purdue's 2007 class is a whole two spots better than IU's....which came in at number 9. CBSSPORTS.com/Hoopmasters has the IU class ranked #2 and Purdue's #7.

How is your 2008 class doing? IU is well on their way to a second straight top 10 class.

How is your 2009 class doing? IU has a half-dozen five stars on their prospect list.

How about 2010? IU has a 4-5 star in the bag.

It takes more than one good class to stay with the Elite Dawgs. But hurry up and get good....It will make spanking you all that more much fun.

Good luck with the NIT this year!

P.S. It was phone calls dude. I know at your school the violations usually include payments to athlete so I can see how you get confused.

Predictable response. Question the integrity of ICE MILLER. You will do the same with the NCAA when they accept IU's report and don't impose any additional penalties.

Read the ICE MILLER bio Illiwhiny fan. They do thorough work and their recommended punishment is virtually always found sufficient by the NCAA.

I am willing to bet you haven't even read through the report IU submitted. I'll warn you ahead of time.....no pictures....so you will have to go slow. It has some tables in stuff too. Better get an interpeter.

Get your facts straight. IU was not on probation. We inheirted recruiting sanctions. Big difference. IU didn't commit any violations....thus we aren't on probation.

From the NCAA:

By definition, a secondary violation is one that is isolated or inadvertent in nature, provides or is intended to provide only a minimal recruiting, competitive or other advantage and does not include any significant recruiting inducement or extra benefit. Most secondary cases are self-reported (either by the institution or through a conference office).

Two secondary violations do not constitute a Major violation unless a significant recruiting advantage is gained and or extra benefits are provided (you know.....paying players like PU). Read the report submitted by IU. ICE MILLER, after a thorough investigation, submitted the violations, which were phone calls, as SECONDARY violations.

Keep living your pipedream. The NCAA is clearly going to accept the penalties IU has already imposed. While regretable and troubling......they are still secondary violations. IU will take the punishment and move on.

Purdue fans show their true colors on this site. I can remember back to Glenn Robinson riding around in his Cadillac under Gene Keady. Don't kid yourselves SPOILERMAKERS. Both your football and basketball teams have had sanctions so just move on and take your lickin' you know it's coming.

Well, how does a 3 star PG ranked at 102 and a 2 star SG not ranked help 1 five star become top 10? I'm confused.

people the cellphone things are way overused. You all say the exact **** thing. Like we all understand the sanctions. Half the time i wish the star would just band comments just so i wouldn't have to read all the stupid posts that everyone ALREADY realizes. Cant any of you be positive...EVER?

I almost feel sorry for Pee-Eew fans. But certainly won't feel sorry for beating them by 30 this year.

Another great pickup for the Hoosiers. Another bad day to be a Pee-Eew fan.

I think that the best guard in NY last year actually ended up going to a division II school. Richard Byrd is a freshman at Adelphi. He was under the radar until his team made it to the state semis and he scored 34 points on Mount Vernon. He couldve easily been a star in Division I. Terrell Tutu Holloway is going to put on a show in Indiana. He is that good!!
