The NCAA isn't playing around when it comes to handing out punishments to college basketball programs, and the next school that could be struck with harsh sanctions is Kansas.

Earlier this week, the Kansas Jayhawks received its notice of allegations from the NCAA, which includes multiple allegations of potentially major violations against the program.

The Jayhawks were one of several schools implicated in the pay-for-play scandal involving Adidas consultant T.J. Gassnola, who was sentenced to probation and fined after a federal investigation and trial.

Georgia Tech was just banned from the 2020 NCAA Tournament and put on four-year probation due to impermissible benefits. It's possible that Kansas receives a similar punishment or one that is even worse.

Many college basketball analysts are speculating what the potential sanctions for Kansas could be.

To make a long story short, the Jayhawks should be worried about a potential postseason ban from the NCAA.

Gary Parrish of CBS Sports believes Kansas could receive a stronger ban than Georgia Tech. The only way it could avoid sanctions of that magnitude is if the program can prove T.J. Gassnola wasn't a school booster.

Stay tuned as the NCAA is cracking down on schools that received their notice of allegations .
