NCAA won't penalize Iowa for Kutcher-Moore violation

Fran McCaffery can breathe a sigh of relief. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore may brought his program widespread ridicule, but Iowa will not be penalized for what the NCAA considers a secondary violation.

The report from the Associated Press:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa says the NCAA won't penalize the Hawkeyes for allowing two basketball recruits to meet celebrity fans Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore.

The school said Monday that the NCAA ruled the actions by Iowa staffers were "secondary" in nature and both unintentional and accidental. Iowa also said the recruits have been fully cleared.

Published reports in September and October quoted Josh Oglesby, a senior at Cedar Rapids Washington High School, and Marcus Paige, a junior at Linn-Mar High School, as saying they met the acting couple at the Iowa-Iowa State football game in September.

The school's report said the recruits also met two former Hawkeyes basketball players that day.
