NCAA gets out the comfy pillow: the Ohio State penalties

The NCAA handed out their sanctions to Ohio State today. The summary version:

  • Nine scholarship reduction over 3 years
  • One year bowl ban
  • Five year show-cause penalty for Jim Tressel.
The show-cause is fairly stern, but the rest of it just goes to show that the NCAA is right: they don't adhere to any sort of consistent standards when applying penalties. Whether or not you think that's a good thing is rather likely to depend on your particular school affiliation.

Gene Smith apparently thinks these penalties are harsh. Boo hoo, Mr Smith, boo hoo.
