The people controlling your school and athletic department were out of control. Can this be argued or is the definition completely different in terms of the NCAA?
Agreed. With all of this going on, and knowing how deep it ran, if this program isn't cancelled for two years, and on probation for longer at a minimum, than there is no point in ever worrying about NCAA violations in the future for anything. Because you can't possibly top the horror of this. You have to almost consider cancelling football period. Because, they have proven they can't handle, nor deserve a program.
And the Big Ten better work quickly to find a replacement.
I'm guessing that since the wrongs done in Happy Valley don't fall under the umbrella of "NCAA Violations", they will gladly steer clear.
