Thayer Evans of Fox Sports says:
The University of Miami is doing it right by self-imposing a bowl ban. That’s something Ohio State never did . Granted there are differences, however, OSU still allowed players to play in the Sugar Bowl after 5 players became ineligible by accepting illegal benefits (now known to include money as well as tattoos). The NCAA should never have allowed this. Now, OSU is still trying to “snake its way out of NCAA woes” by minimizing penalties.
“The NCAA should factor in Ohio state’s arrogance” when deciding what penalties to impose.
