Thanks for the recap, as if I don't understand the situation. That's not my point at all. To be punished by an entity that unanimously acknowledges the rules by which they're punishing you will be disappearing in some way can only be described as complete insanity. The reason I say that is because they, at their own discretion, enforce their rules however they want on a case by case basis, and they don't EVER explain their reasoning. They can choose to give no suspension. Or even time served by Ohio State's own suspension. Or they could end his career at Ohio State if they wanted. And you know the shitty part? No one, including the NCAA, would be able to provide an explanation for the punishment, no matter what that punishment was, and no one could really argue it. Appeals never get overturned.
Really there has been no rhyme or reason as to how they enforce this rule throughout its history. It's stupid.
