PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
There was no bowl ban for Tatgate. That came because of the Bobby DiGeronimo stuff, which made Ohio State a repeat violator - and worse, some of those violations happened AFTER Tatgate.
Which means technically the answer "no bowl ban" is the correct one no?

Okay, should have been "Ohio State Scandal as a whole"
Either way...OSU would have received some kind of punishment because NCAA was "thirsty for OSU" as my inner city students would say to describe it. OSU would have gotten some kind of punishment...at least scholarship reductions because of the repeat offender thing from B-Ball.

I believe our self imposed penalties were more than enough. Some dudes sold some of their own property. BFD. Not like their dadies were asking for 60k or whatever it was. Something seems a little off to me. But I digress.
In addition to Ramzy's point, where is the option for "No, the NCAA is never predictable because they have no solid structure for procedure or only follow it when they feel like it."
They should put people like Gene Smith on a committee to design a Magic 8-Ball to determine punishments. It could have answers like "Add a 2 year postseason ban" or "Add 5 to the scholarship reduction" or "'Investigate' until the media largely forgets the infractions" or "Have Sports-by-Brooks cover the story so it appears untrue" and so on.
