    I know this is the company line, and I use it myself when off this board. But, we didn't get penalized for allowing our players to get tattooed. Our players traded on the benefits of being on the OSU football team. Such a practice, when not properly monitored, can lead to a competitive advantage.

    Our coach lied about his knowledge of NCAA violations.

    That said, We were going to go on being OSU regardless of extra benefits. Oregon is only Oregon because of extra benefits. (I speak of Knight, not Lyles.)

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    This. If players know that they can have additional benefits while playing at certain schools, then that's a competitive advantage.

    Having the head coach lie (both to the institution and to the ncaa) about his knowledge of those benefits is a serious failure to monitor what's going on in your own program.

    And just to be clear - OSU has been severely punished. We now have to live with Urban Meyer as our coach.

    I just LOVE to point out to my friends from other schools how much OSU is suffering as a result of our transgressions.

    Reminds me of the time my wife caught me cheating on her and made me sleep with Jennifer Lopez every night for a month.

    Well, considering that my comment was a direct response to the allegation that there was a multi-year, systemic practice of giving players gear to funnel through a broker for money and JT was either complicit or at least aware of it.....IF that had been proven....

    Then yes, it would have been absolutely right if Ohio State shut the program down for a year or two, and I wouldn't have cared. Hell, I would have applauded the decision.

    This. It does seem that for every month that Ohio State was being dragged through the [Mark May] they came out smelling like a rose.

    Even some of the national guys were laughing about the bowl ban.

    "Great job NCAA, I'm sure the other coaches appreciate the fact that while they are preparing for their bowls Urban Meyer will be on the recruiting trail."

    I like to think of this next year as just a really long pre-season to 2013.

    Greg-guh Doyle blasts the NCAA for indicating that it won't be hammering Oregon for their institutional cheating to get players. I agree with him, although he's off base in his comparison to Boise State (since their LOIC was related to non-football violations),

    It's good thing this doesn't happen on any other campus, any other football team. Especially not here in Lincoln, where all the kids are always pot-free.
