It's going to be an interesting offseason for several college basketball programs, as NCAA allegations loom large. While not every team's identity is known yet, the belief is that a few powerhouses are at risk.

Kansas dealt with a season-long issue involving Silvio De Sousa and the NCAA. The talented forward didn't play the entire year due to suspension.

Last week, CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd revealed that at least six college basketball programs will be notified of NCAA major violations this summer.

There is no telling if the Jayhawks will receive a Level I violation, but it was previously reported that they're under NCAA investigation.

Bill Self spoke to the media over the weekend about a series of topics, which included the CBS report about schools getting notices for violation.

From 247Sports:

"There was absolutely no NCAA news last week based on what I read except obviously a spokesperson spoke about what he thought was going to happen," Self said. "How can I say this? I was shocked to read something that something could be said that was not specifically intended for anyone, but it made all 20 schools that were mentioned in the FBI deal and their fanbase feel like it was."

[...]

"I've got no comment on it because only he knows what exactly what he meant by what he said, except that fact that he said schools would definitely be served this summer, which, I guess that could [very well be] true," Self said. "I just think to predetermine what's going to happen before investigations are done, I think that comes pretty strong."

Next season should be special for Kansas as long as it avoids any postseason bans or suspensions.

Stay tuned for more updates on these potential NCAA violations.
