This Sports Illustrated article claims that Tressel knew about improper benefits going to players as back as 2002. This "no nonsense" and "character first" coach has known his program has been dirty the entire time. If the NCAA really wants to make an example out of a team, they should do it to one of the biggest programs and one of the biggest cheaters ever. The NCAA is just as crooked as OSU was/is, so I doubt it (they're all in it for the money, too), but how may more schools will crack down on improper benefits if they take down one of the big boys' decade of winning? Seems fair to me. Seems really, really fair to me.

What he did wasn't "cheating" as it did not effect the games in any way. He simply broke an outside-of-game rule (more of a code of conduct).

Incentivizing players affects the game by affecting who plays in it.

Of course, official practice of sports revisionism, wiping out a decade of history, is moronic.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Can you provide any evidence that there was a single player that would have chosen to not play if they were not provided with "tattoos, cars, or cash" from this scandal?

It's not that they wouldn't play; it's that they would not necessarily have played for THAT team.
