If it were, then way didn't every athletic program get hit with some kind of sanction because of the AD's involvement in the coverup. I don't think the NCAA should be the moral police, in my opinion it sets a huge precedent. Maybe I am just confused as to the responsibilities of the NCAA but in my mind they are just there to enforce their rules to keep the playing field fair.
    And came down with the penalties in record time. The NCAA has never acted that fast ever.

    Particularly when the school agrees to be punished. Its rather like someone entering into a plea bargain to avoid a trial not being generally able to complain about the result.
