This is not objective. This is not love or hate. This is not a decision.
Either they have the proper paperwork on the autombiles or they dont. Guess what, I bet they dont.
This should warrant a return of the of the famous SMU death penalty.

While I agree that Ohio state should get some severe sanctions levied against them, I don't see the "death penalty" happening. College football's sole purpose is to make money, and I'm sure that OSU would be harmed financially, esp. in this economy, to have its huge revenue-making football program shut down completely for 2 years, as was done with SMU. The Big "10" would suffer, too, as OSU is its marquee team currently. Also, a TV ban is unlikely, as that would harm the Buckeye's opponents and its TV carriers (Big 10 network, ESPN, etc) financially. College football is a different landscape now then it was 25 years ago, what with all the constant TV exposure and all.
That having been said, I can easily imagine OSU getting U$C'd x 2. Tressel, the AD, and compliance dept. getting fired, the guilty players being dismissed, loss of scholly's and bowl games for a few years, etc. But no way they get the SMU death penalty.
