Honestly, I'm so tired of talking about these sanctions, the reality being that these schools commit significant infractions, and get a slap on the wrist.
Even if they have to vacate their banner, the fans all still got to celebrate the joy of a Championship.
No one can ever take that away from them.
At least Louisville self-imposed their postseason ban during a season where they were a ranked team, unlike Syracuse who self-imposed when they had no chance of making the tournament.
But the only way to punish these programs, is to knock them out of the postseason for several years.
Imagine a 4 year postseason ban?
That might stop teams from providing illegal benefits.
Does anyone think Pitino is losing much sleep over a 5 game suspension?
Even if they lose all 5 games, the committee will write it off like they did with Boeheim.

This is no punishment at all. Total BS why even bother?

Although at times deserving, whenever someone takes away a title for sanctions, (such as USC football) its always more so hypothetical. No one else won those titles, except that team and will always remain as such to everyone else so it doesn't matter what the NCAA says.

I thought this article was a good take on the whole mess.
