agree 100%. the ncaa is guilty of "erasing history" much more often than just this one time though. i think it is a dumb penalty. i will ALWAYS know JoePa is THE coach in college football. reggie bush will ALWAYS be a heisman winner. the fab 5 will ALWAYS have 2 ncaa tourney title games under their belts. we just need to ignore the ncaa and the bs they try to pass.
fine them, give them the bowl ban, take some scholarships away...take them off of tv for a few years...whatever you want. 2 things you cant do...1. try to pretend like these games were never played AND won, and 2. the "death penalty". im just glad they were smart enough to not go hard after the second.
