NCAAF  > General NCAAF  > Repeat Offenders..??
June 5, 2011, 02:39 AM
I;m not an NCAA policy expert, by any means, but i wonder about something...

....wasnt OSU on NCAA probation as late as 09' for other violations?

....if these new allegations of violations starting all the way back to '02 prove to be true...(even SOME of it)

Can the NCAA 'retro-classify' based on information obtained in a separate investigation? Wouldn't that place OSU under the Repeat Offender Policy?

...and wouldn't that make the '10 violations of probable LOIC, and who knows what else, place OSU in violation of the Repeat Offender Policy?

....depending on what is proven, and how the NCAA decides to handle such a long term, program-wide, potentially university-wide, case of violations, this COULD be the worst nightmare of ANY college sports program..

Giants make the most noise when they fall...THE Ohio State University may have its reputation used against it by the NCAA to make a statement..

The NCAA couldn't give THE Ohio State University the "Death Penalty"..could it?
...even if ALL of these things prove to be true....would it??

....SHOULD IT???

tOSU had major infraction on the mens basketball team in March 2006. They got 3 years of probation.

I think the repeat offender window is 5 years, but the NCAA can use its discretion as to whether to declare a given infraction a repeat offender situation.

The Columbus Dispatch reported back in April that when the NCAA handed out the allegations, they stated that repeat offender status was on the table for this case.

But in answering your full question: Ohio State is nowhere near a death penalty. Not even close.

Give them a 60 total scholarship limit for a few years and call it even.

Go back and look at how many times the NCAA used technicalities to keep Auburn from receiving the death penalty. They were guilty as hell but the NCAA gave them grace.

Auburn was guilty of multiple violations in concurrent time periods, but the NCAA ruled that --- since the information on the 2nd/3rd/4th violations was brought to light AFTER the 1st investigation had commenced --- that Auburn wasn't really a death penalty candidate. LOL.
