If it wasn't clear before, it should be clear now: The NCAA has clear expectations for the way a head coach must monitor his program. Rick Pitino got a suspension because, as the panel noted, "a head coach does not meet his monitoring responsibility by simply trusting an individual to know NCAA rules and do the right thing."

Mark Schlabach ESPN Senior Writer 

The NCAA ordered Louisville to vacate basketball records in which ineligible players competed from December 2010 to July 2014. It wasn't immediately clear if the Cardinals would be forced to vacate their 2012 Final Four appearance and 2013 national championship.
