Do you think if more shady stuff is found out through the SI investigation that the NCAA does some SMU death penalty-esqe actions to The Ohio Sucks University? I wouldn't shed any tears if they lost all there scholarships for two years.

No, that would never happen to a school like OSU. SMU got that because they were SMU. Now Boise State? They'd drop the hammer. Even still I doubt you ever see the death penalty again. OSU generates entirely too much money to get anything more than something like USC got, lose a few scholarships, a few bowl games, and some TV. A program like OSU can easily survive that for a couple of years.

You never know. Before 1987 SMU was actually a storied football program, dominating there conference and giving us such things as the Pony Express backfield and Doak Walker, but you're probably right, I don't see any slush funds or OSU alumni paying players. Although Prior having eight cars in three years is a little suspicious.
The sad thing is people are dumb enough to believe every school isn't doing this.

The Spygate thing a few years back really exposed sports fans' ignorance to reality.
