Does the NCAA pick harder on the little guys?

Baylor must get up off the mat yet again

>> Baylor had been upfront about its wrongdoing. And Baylor had hit itself hard by placing itself on probation and getting rid of almost everyone even remotely connected with the scandal.

Underwood guessed the NCAA would look favorably on Baylor's proactive investigation. He guessed that, maybe, the school might lose another scholarship or two. He certainly didn't expect more than that.

On Thursday, he found out otherwise. He found out that life isn't always fair when it's the NCAA suits defining fairness. Baylor got hit harder than any school since SMU received the death penalty in football in 1987.

The problem with the punishment is that the people guilty of wrongdoing already have departed. Instead of punishing the people who are guilty, the NCAA is punishing the people brought in to clean up the mess. The NCAA is punishing players who've never met [former coach] Dave Bliss. <<

Seems like NCAA ...

... "sending a message" more than picking on a particular program. There have been lots of similar actions by law enforcement and various ruling organizations to "set an example" to discourage future abuses -- the name Martha Stewart comes to mind. Seems like another example of this.

My guess is that those university people had to say those things.
