    As much as I don't agree with penalties as stiff as what's being rumored, they would have to allow players to transfer without penalty if they do that. If so, I hope some RBs, WRs, and O-lineman would be willing to come to Florida. We have a few extra scholarships to offer and desperately need some more muscle and firepower on offense.

    I think a lot of the "reports" will prove to be BS. 2-year bowl ban and maybe a few dozen scholarship strippings stretched out over a few years is my guess. Not much worse than what USC got.

    The death penalty is dead. People throw that term around so wantonly every time there is a scandal anymore. It's not happening. The NCAA even acknowledged it was excessive in SMU's case.
    but when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was "Stannis! Stannis! STANNIS!"

    There is no comparison to paying recruits or selling memorabilia or tatgate to enabling a pedophile to operate in your facilities and knowing what was going on. I disagree with how harsh the penalties could be if they go as indicated but I won't be surprised. Quite honestly I expect them to get hammered harder then any program ever has, with the exception of SMU.

    Will be interesting to see what comes of it. I don't think they get the death penalty, but 3+ bowl bans, a **** ton of scholarships, and TV bans wouldn't surprise me. Been awhile since we've had a TV ban. That one would probably hurt the most. And of course probably fines as well.

    TV bans hurt the whole conference. I doubt it will get that far.

    I doubt the NCAA really gives a **** at this point.

    I'm pretty sure they scrapped TV bans awhile ago.

    The NCAA cares a great deal. Trust me.

    As bad as Miami has been for years now they're still a cash cow in TV ratings. Miami is Howard Stern-like. You watch because you love Miami but more people watch Miami because they hate Miami. And with the way the economy is today, more and more people are staying home and turning on their big screen televisions.

    True. I didn't even think about the other schools when mentioning TV bans. They'll surely do something to empty the pockets of PSU though for sure.

    PUS is getting fined 60 million dollars, all to be given to children's charities.
