Of course these sanctions aren't going to scare anyone away. The NCAA had a chance to send a message (that the crime is not worth the time), and chose not to. They gave a one-year bowl ban AFTER players had committed. And those players likely won't play much their freshman year anyway. To have any teeth at all, they needed a 2-year ban. All this postseason ban does is penalize a few innocent players, and the fans that don't get to go to a bowl game. I knew it wouldn't impact recruiting in the slightest.
But there's a limit on scholarships. And you guys lost your cheating coaches. That was the biggest penalty at all. And there's no doubt Butch's players that are still with the program cannot help themselves. They will do something stupid in the next couple of years, and this time it will be while the program is on probation. If I were you, I would not breathe easy.
LOL @ "I knew it wouldn't impact recruiting in the slightest."
I wonder how many TBK posts I could find, if I liked wasting my time, where the lil critter yapped about the current recruits bailing or new recruits choosing another program?
100's i'd bet going back to the beginning of it all. poor lil thing has been pure giddy over the UNC football program dropping to the d00k level but it ain't gonna happen. hang in there critter, and just be happy that state fans have anything at all to cheer about.
