You have to make a punishment that gets the point across. That's what those types of NCAA sanctions are made for. Yes you would be punishing players that had nothing to do with a violation of the rules, but it would be a future deterant for management. One year of a team being banned from the post season will hurt attendane, as well as scare away top end talent long enough to stop a team from breaking the rules twice. Putting a rule like this in place would also create the accountability I was talking about. Do you want to be the guy that ruins a chance at a playoff run for your teamates or will you think twice about taking the improper benifits?

Of course you could just be selfish (which alot of players would be) and break the rules. Nothing like burning bridges to endear you to your fanbase.
