Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore involved in Iowa recruiting violation

We interrupt your football Sunday and trick-or-treet prep to bring up the absurd but true story of a recruiting violation Fran McCaffery's staff committed at Iowa.

The Des Moines Register reports that the Hawkeyes notified the NCAA of violations that took place when two recruits -- including guard Josh Oglesby, now an Iowa commit -- had impermissible contact with a group of people including Asthon Kutcher and Demi Moore at an Iowa-Iowa State football game.

This is hardly the type of violation that can take down a program. But it's not exactly the type of press McCaffery needs as he tries to rebuild a program that has sunk to the bottom of the Big Ten pecking order in recent years.

"The university is remorseful that these violations occurred," associate AD Fred Mims wrote in an Oct. 1 letter to the NCAA. "We believe they were the result of sloppy management by our basketball staff."
