This may be way out there on the conspiracy line but...
Does anyone else think it is weird that the NCAA waited until after bowl selection to hand down this penalty?
1. The SEC and ESPN and NCAA are all in bed together
2. Urban Meyer comes to OSU
3. The SEC gets pissed
4. The SEC calls ESPN who calls the NCAA
5. The NCAA drags their feet until after 2011 bowl selection

You can't tell me that the NCAA didn't know months ago that they were going to give OSU a bowl ban. I'm sure that idea wasn't thought of yesterday morning. I think it is the NCAA's way of sticking it to OSU. "We will have them go to a crappy bowl this year, and ban them next year. 2 for 1."
