This is not good news for Kansas basketball and head coach Bill Self.

The NCAA is reportedly preparing to issue allegations that detail multiple major violations on the part of the Kansas men's basketball program.

This comes following a summer of speculation that had to do with schools involved in a pay-for-play recruiting scheme that's been investigated by the FBI.

Kansas associate athletic director of public relations, Dan Beckler, told The Kansas City Star that they have not received any notification from the NCAA regarding this matter.

Kansas, along with NC State, were among the schools associated with Adidas that was named during the federal investigation. That alone could get KU in hot water.

If Kansas ends up receiving any major violations, which could take months to be handed down, they have the opportunity to appeal, which could take quite a while and not have an impact on the upcoming basketball season.
