Kansas State's Curtis Kelly will miss six games for accepting impermissible benefits on the purchase of clothing at a department store. Kelly has already missed two games. He'll be eligible to return Jan. 15 against Texas Tech.

Kelly and teammate Jacob Pullen were ruled ineligible moments before the Wildcats' game with UNLV last week. Pullen will miss a total of three games. He'll be eligible to return Jan. 3 against Savannah State.

The lengths of Pullen’s and Kelly’s suspensions are based on NCAA guidelines for extra-benefit violations, according to KSU officials. Players must generally sit out 10 percent of a team's scheduled regular-season games (in this case, three games) if the value of a benefit is between $100 and $300 and 20 percent of a team's scheduled regular-season games (in this case, six games) if the value of a benefit is between $300 and $500. In other words, Pullen accepted between $100 and $300 in discounted clothing while Kelly accepted between $300 and $500 in discounted clothing.

Kansas State is 10-3 and ranked 17th nationally.

The Wildcats play North Florida at Bramlage Coliseum on Friday.

And what's crazy is that the KSU suspensions start NOW...not sometime next season like Ohio State's.  Funny how that worked out.

Just a thought, Cam Newton knew about his fathers' dealing around for money.  I predict in about 6 years, he will be ruled ineleigle and the ncaa, in al its wisdom will tell him to return the heisman.  Auburn might get the national title but the truth will come out.  Chisik is not clean in all this.  Are you going to beleive a guy with his record came to Auburn, replaced Tuberville, who was a really good coach and all of a sudden Auburn is better than Alabama?  Shame on all involved, go Oregon!

K-State has already played Gonzaga, Virginia Tech, Florida, UNLV and Duke.  Not too shabby for this time of year.

He should have had his Dad pick up a boatload of cash for him instead.  Not only is that legal, but encouraged by the NCAA.

If I recall correctly, the Ohio State guys have to repay between $1000 and @500. If the penalty is on a sliding scale, then they should be penalized longer. If $100 gets you 10% and $301 gets you 20%, it seems like 45% for $2500 is light.

Just so we can clear all the stuff up, the OSU footballers actually received a STIFFER penalty than the KSU hoops guys. As stated above, the rule is based on a percentage of a teams games. 6 games for hoops is generally 20% of approximately 30 games. The OSU football guys were suspended 5 games which is 45% of the teams schedule. Therefore simple math says..the Buckeyes penalty is more severe....move on!

NCAA IS THE BIGGEST CONTRADICTION EVER. If it costs them and the tv networks then they delay suspensions but just some regular season games--immediate suspension.
