So, I'm ready for my next fix of NCAA induced Ohio pain. Obviously, something will happen. The question is when. We could have a statement of findings:
- between now and the end of the regular season
- between the end of the season and the bowl
- in the beginning of the new year
- after national signing day
I'd be interested to know if all of these potential dates are still on the table. Secondarily, I'm speculating on what would benefit Michigan the most and hurt Ohio the most. To some degree, having info come dribbling out from the NCAA every 3 - 5 weeks has been glorious. The best scenario I can see is a report right after a (lower level) bowl game, announcing sanctions including a bowl ban of a year (better, two) and the loss of scholarships. This would take away the option of not going bowling this year, and potentially bring Dunn into the MIchigan fold.
At the other end of the spectrum is a complete exoneration of Ohio, announced soon, such that there are no bowl bans and no scholarship losses.
The wild card would be for yet more new information to come out, conclusively establishing the dreaded LOIC and bringing the most significant and severe sanctions.
Anyone have real knowlege of what can be expected?
