NCAA Follow the Money, part 5214.

Read this little gem from Ohio State and also this little gem for pawning Autographs for Tattoos.

Sure, they'll be suspended but not for the big BCS game, and only one meaningful conference game next year. Otherwise, that would cost us a bunch of money.

So, SEC = no penalty

Big 10 = no penalty for money games

Pac 10 = loss of bowl games and scholarships

Of course, I think the NCAA has it in for the Pac-10 for trying to bribe members of the Big XII into joining the "Super Conference."
