The best thing to ever come out of Tennessee...I-65 heading south.
I don't like retroactive punishment either, but these rules are on the books. You can't just have a culture that ignores the rules in a widespread, systemic fashion.
The answer is to have each player sign a contract when they set foot on campus that allows punitive damages after their NCAA career is over if it's proven they broke the rules. Coaches should be required to have similar wording in their contracts. But forcing the NFL to deal with the NCAA's poor decisions / leadership isn't the answer.

I am simply a fan who has no impact outside of the money I provide the athletic department via ticket and memorabilia purchases and the energy I can provide when I attend the games. ©2009-2015, crimsonaudio
There is a spirit abroad in the earth, that of the Arch-foe of God and man: Radicalism. Nothing that is venerable with age, nothing just, true and pure, will be allowed to escape. This ruthless, leveling Spirit wages war against the Family, the State and the Church. Nothing is safe from it. There is no sanctuary which it will not invade, no just, holy, time-honored sanction which it will not violate. It swaggers, in its Titanic audacity, against the empire of the Eternal. J. L. Girdardeau

The only problem I see with using this approach in the future is that the NCAA has already made up their mind on Miami's guilt (which it's kind of obvious they are guilty). If they tried this on other schools in the future that they weren't 10000% sure of their guilt, it could be very bad. If the school was in fact innocent, they are already screwed. It would be like the police interrogating an innocent man saying "admit that you killed that person, or we're going to just assume you're guilty anyways and throw you in jail". With that said, I hope they decimate the U.
Double standard again by the NCAA. They assume by not talking the ex Miami players are guilty however the HBO4 stopped talking and they let the Barn off as they couldn't get the players to cooperate.
Didn't Miami self-impose a post season ban, even though they were in the running for the ACC CG?
Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.
Yep. And that should clue us on how bad they think it's gonna be.
