Technically Pete Carroll never got in trouble for anything. The got their sanctions because Reggie Bush's parents got a house and OJ Mayo got gifts from agents before even stepping on the court. I'm not going to pretend that Carroll never did anything wrong because every coach is doing something that's a violation at one point or another.

So to me this is a fair ruling, it honestly could have been nothing with the way the NCAA conducted themselves in the investigation.

Personally I'm not in favor of bowl bans & scholarship losses because to me they punish the wrong people (the players & fans). I think they should just slap the universities with huge fines in all cases.
Then they just raise tuition.
