I'm hearing the NCAA penalties are imminent. There is some face saving going on here. They are trying to hit individual former coaches hard and for about 15 players who refused to cooperate in the investigation...they will be banned from campus or any association for 10 years. There will be vacation of wins most likely which is OK because nothing of substance was accomplished during this whole period from 02-09. They will also tack on a full 5 year probation. All of this to placate the enforcement division sothey can save some face. In exchange...to ensure no further litigation or bad PR from the university itself the sscholarship reductions are expected to be fairly light....ie in the vicinity of 10 total and of course no more bowls since 2 were already self imposed.
