    This may be a stupid question, but why can't the ncaa hit a program in the pocket book when they find serious violations? I was wondering why, such as the case with SMU and Miami in the early 90's, the ncaa punishes entire communities by taking away post season play and scholarships.. rather than require a university to get rid of the students and administrators involved and fine the school. Such as the case with men's basketball no one that was involved in the improprieties is effected by the suspension from post season play... :( :osu:

    because it is an unequal punishment. you cant fine OSU and temple the same amount for the same infractions.

    I thought about that but it seems there would be a way to make it proportionate to how much revenue a schools athletic department brings in...If a school knew that they would have to pay a large chunk of money it seems as though their would be serious effort to police programs especially in conferences like the SEC :osu:

    Also, taking away post-season play and scholarships DO hit the teams in the pocketbook and yet it is clearly under their authority to do these things. If they just hit them with an equivilant fine it would be millions of dollars which would be argued in courts I would think.

    Your right the Universities would have to probibly all agree and sign on to some crazy legal document.. it just seems that taking a program down punishes so many people who have nothing to do with the situation...

    Something asshole boosters fail to realize when they pay a kid so they can say "they own him." It will eventually hurt the university in some significant way. It can be stopped and hopefully Ohio State is putting together sanctions for boosters that will eliminate their even thinking about a hundred-dollar handshake.

    How about this... if you want to hire student athlete's to work at your firm you sign an agreement saying that you will only pay them fair wages for hours worked, etc. and if you break that agreement tOSU will sue you blind.

    Most places would no longer be wiling to hire student athletes of course, but we wouldn't have the violations either.
