As a K-State fan I still have to tip my hat to Oregon.  They should've been in that title game last year.

Recruiting violations don't concern me all that much.  As the legendary Barry Switzer once said, if you ain't cheatin' you ain't tryin'.

mentallo69: I think its a slap on the wrist personally. No vacating of wins, I mean come on


Maybe it's me but vacating wins seems like the most non-punishment possible. The NCAA doesn't even require schools to accurately show the vacated wins in the schools' record books. The fans who saw the games don't suddenly forget what happened on the field. The record books and recruiting materials all have the same number in the W column as before. Vacated wins change absolutely nothing. Taking away tv rights (which the NCAA doesn't seem to want to do anymore) or scholarships are the only things that get to sports programs. Vacated wins is pretty much like telling someone 'tsk tsk, naughty naughty' and leaving it at that.

I agree in theory but for this to work in football, you'd probably have to have an age limit.  One of the good things about college football is that it protects kids who are 18-22 years old from having to go up against guys in their physical prime at 25-27.  In baseball, a 27-year-old who's scuffling or needs to work on technique or whatever can go to the minors to get right.  I wouldn't want to see an NFL-caliber offensive lineman in that situation; he may need to work on his footwork or whatever, but he can and will maul a kid who's just out of high school.  So it would probably have to be at least somewhat different from the MLB model.

I agree with this.  People were at the games, they know what happened.  I guess symbolism matters when it's something like taking Joe Paterno off the top of the all-time wins leaders, but in the vast majority of cases it seems pretty trivial.

Understand and somewhat agreed, but remember they made U$C vacate their wins and national titles in wake of the Reggie Bush scandals. This really isnt that much different. It's all about the NCAA being afraid of losing out on that Nike money.

He sucked.  {clicks profile}  From Tennessee, eh?  Well, good luck with your QB, he's got loads of potential, but he didn't live up to it in college.  I mean, he's supposedly a great guy so I can't hate on him for his college underachievement, but I have no particular fondness for him either.

the punishment expires after 18 months, so as long as he lasts at least a year he gets a free pass

Surprised. I thought they'd get hammered to the wall.

Not that they deserved more given the allegations made (an SEC team not named Miss. State wouldn't even get a second glance for violations this minor), but I expected them TO get more.

Oregon has much, much worse skeletons in their closet, but apparently the NCAA doesn't care about them. Maybe they'll investigate them when they investigate Auburn.

In regards to the article, the punishments weren't THAT extreme, but not being able to recruit is nothing to sneeze at either. So yeah, I'm not an Oregon fan by ANY means (I do have a soft spot for their mascot though..I love the Oregon Duck almost as much as I love Mike the Tiger), but hey, yall will make it though this (LSU football/players is not a stranger to trouble, lol) and continue to kick ass (at least on the field)!

tOSU did not get smacked for the tattoos; they got smacked for lying about covering up the fact the tattoos happened.  If Tressel had gathered the guilty parties in a room, told them "guys ignore what I am about to say for the next 10 minutes", and then proceeded to lamblast them for being farktards while an assistant coach made sure a local reporter was walking by to hear it, then assigned a 1-game suspension for each of them ... the NCAA would have named him Coach of the Eon, retroactively given every NCAA championship in every sport ever to the tOSU football team, and probably changed the rules to allow tOSU players to accept unlimited money and gifts.  Instead, he covered it up, and then lied about knowing about it (while simultaneously keeping studious records of all the communications with the administrations about the lying).  He was doing everything except openly begging for sanctions.  I know college coaches are walking ids with negative super-egos, but you would think they would learn: when one of your kids does something naughty, you punish him gently, ring up the NCAA and tell them, and then ask if you need to decapitate the player.  Coaching staffs spend immense time and resources trying to build a facade of perfection.  If you just ring up the NCAA every couple of weeks reporting ticky-tack shiat and requesting they review it to determine if they need to banhammer you, at some point they get tired of answering the phone and tell you to bugger off.  They will actively tell you to not report violations - then you start running the comfort women dungeon out of the locker room.

phalamir: Robo Beat: animesucks: their best strategy in avoiding a major punishment was not being named the university of southern california

Everyone knows you're A-OK so long as nobody got a tattoo out of the bargain.

tOSU did not get smacked for the tattoos; they got smacked for lying about covering up the fact the tattoos happened.  If Tressel had gathered the guilty parties in a room, told them "guys ignore what I am about to say for the next 10 minutes", and then proceeded to lamblast them for being farktards while an assistant coach made sure a local reporter was walking by to hear it, then assigned a 1-game suspension for each of them ... the NCAA would have named him Coach of the Eon, retroactively given every NCAA championship in every sport ever to the tOSU football team, and probably changed the rules to allow tOSU players to accept unlimited money and gifts.  Instead, he covered it up, and then lied about knowing about it (while simultaneously keeping studious records of all the communications with the administrations about the lying).  He was doing everything except openly begging for sanctions.  I know college coaches are walking ids with negative super-egos, but you would think they would learn: when one of your kids does something naughty, you punish him gently, ring up the NCAA and tell them, and then ask if you need to decapitate the player.  Coaching staffs spend immense time and resources trying to build a facade of perfection.  If you just ring up the NCAA every couple of weeks reporting ticky-tack shiat and requesting they review it to determine if they need to banhammer you, at some point they get tired of answering the phone and tell you to bugger off.  They will actively tell you to not report violations - then you start running the comfort women dungeon out of the locker room.


Erm... I hate tOSU as much as the next guy, but that's a wee bit beyond normal hatred. First part is pretty accurate, though - tOSU wasn't busted for idiots trading memorabilia for tattoo's, it was busted for lying to the NCAA about it in a manner reminiscent of a kid being told publicly by his father "Stop poking your sister." then the kid brazenly laying a finger on his sisters arm with a shiat eating grin on his face.

/don't know enough about the Oregon situation to really comment. Looks like there's quite a bit of punishment on Oregon, but whether it's akin to the father taking away the PS Vita but leaving the kid with an iPad or akin to the father taking away the internet for a week I can't say.
//How much of an imposition is losing 14% of your "football evaluation days" on a football program, or 33% of official paid visits? Just how much of a penalty is this to a potential National Championship Contender?

puffy999: Surprised. I thought they'd get hammered to the wall.

Not that they deserved more given the allegations made (an SEC team not named Miss. State wouldn't even get a second glance for violations this minor), but I expected them TO get more.

Oregon has much, much worse skeletons in their closet, but apparently the NCAA doesn't care about them. Maybe they'll investigate them when they investigate Auburn.


The NCAA had this investigation open for 2 years. It's not like they looked at the material, said "whatever" and slapped them not he wrist. I fact, Oregon came out and said they would self impose these punishment and the NCAA denied this action because they wanted to continue investigating.

The NCAA wanted so badly to nail Oregon. They found shiat. Unless you know more about the program than what a 2 year investigation came up with. In which case, you might want to tell them everything you "know".
