Re: Improper benefits at the U?
The "threat" of NCAA sanctions hovering over Miami were penalty enough. Al Golden had to convince years worth of recruits to come to a school potentially facing major sanctions. This, along with the self-imposed bowl ban, was enough.
On a side note, why would any school "self-impose" penalties anymore? The NCAA is feckless and doesn't have the credibility to impose any real sanctions on schools. In the past few years, they botched the Miami situation (relying on a convicted felon amongst other things) and completely overstepped their authority in the Penn State situation.
