I'm not defending Kelly. I really hope that they sit Seastrunk and possibly James, because I don't want us playing with ineligible players. Definitely not Ohio State or USC level, but I definitely see a loss in scholarships and possibly more. If Kelly really did cover this up, I don't want him as head coach.

tOSU should get worse punishments than USC. There was an eight-year pattern of repeated violations and lies at tOSU, as opposed to just one player at USC. tOSU should lose a ton of scholarships, 4 year bowl ban, and and maybe a 2 year TV ban, IMO. Harsh, but the NCAA should make an example out of tOSU.

Personally, the whole 'vacating your wins' thing is a total bunch of grade A horse puckey.

Most of us here watched Ohio State have a great season last year and they finally won a bowl game, against an SEC team no less! Now they want to tell everyone that 'It never happened. You didn't see anything...'

Bull.

Oh, and Lights Out: Nice idea, but you and I and everyone else here knows the NCAA isn't going to drop the hammer on Ohio State. If is it a hammer though, it would be one of those soft and squishy hammers that squeaks when it hits you. You know why? Because the NCAA is full of nothing more then spineless cowards that are more willing to follow a dollar trail then a trail of lies and deceit.

I said "should," not "will." The NCAA is the classic schoolyard bully - they love using the death penalty on D-III soccer programs, but when a blue-blood program screws up royally, they're too scared of lost revenue to give a real punishment.

That only happened once, and the athletic department in question wasn't even aware it had a soccer program for awhile...and that they were trotting out very ineligible players.

The other D-III death penalty involved giving athletic scholarships to foreign ringers players. D-III schools aren't allowed to give out athletic scholarships.

Wait a second... A D-III school got the death penalty from the NCAA? When was that??

Only school I (and everyone else) know who got it was SMU's football program during it's 'Pony Excess' days (BTW, if you can find it on DVD, go and watch Pony Excess. It's a great documentary).

There are 4 other instances:

1952-53 Kentucky basketball: Not a formal implementation of the modern death penalty, but a combination of point shaving and Kentucky players actually getting paid to play prompted the NCAA to set its phasers to "smite"-earning Kentucky a postseason ban and eventual season cancellation when the NCAA pressured the rest of its membership to not play them in Non-Conference play (the SEC already barred them from Conference play.)

1973-75 Louisiana-Lafayette basketball: Massive academic fraud, including ignoring GPAs that were below the NCAA's rather generous minimum and an assistant coach forging a principal's signature on a transcript.

2003 Morehouse College soccer: Explained above. The team does not exist anymore as a consequence. (oopsie, they were D-II, though)

2005-2007 MacMurray College tennis: The "ringers" incident. A postseason ban in 2008 and 2009 was also included.

In addition, I wouldn't be completely surprised if Boise State's women's tennis program got hit with the death penalty for their little scandal.
