Theory that NCAA doesn’t punish major programs doesn’t hold up

David Glenn breaks down why the punishment handed to Louisville from the NCAA is yet another example of why the theory that NCAA is afraid of major programs doesn’t hold up.

The University of Louisville became the first men’s college basketball program to have a national title vacated after losing its appeal with the NCAA Appeals Committee. The Cardinals will have to vacate 123 victories including the championship, and return some $600,000 in conference revenue from the 2012-15 NCAA Tournaments.

David Glenn explains why punishments for Louisville, Syracuse and Notre Dame debunk the theory that the NCAA is afraid to punish bellwether programs.
