Sack Lloyd Carr / Other Detroit Area Sports / Ohio State Escapes Ban

From the Detroit Free Press

The NCAA's committee on infractions finally ruled on former coach Jim O'Brien and former assistant Paul Biancardi's improper extra benefits to a former recruit and a former player.

Ohio State's penalty was relatively light: It drew three years' probation, will have to repay 90% of its tournament earnings from 1999-2002 (about $800,000) and erase its tournament records from those seasons, and take down the 1999 Final Four banner.

The charges stem from former player Boban Savovic's Ohio State career from 1999-2002, when he received improper benefits from a booster, and from recruit Aleksandar Radojevic's $6,000 loan from O'Brien.

The NCAA was hard on O'Brien and Biancardi, now the head coach at Wright State. If O'Brien gets a job at another college in the next five years, he and his new school must appear before the NCAA's infractions committee to discuss whether he will face additional limits.

Biancardi was prohibited from recruiting until Oct. 1, 2007.

Although I'm a Michigan fan, I'm glad to see that Ohio State escaped a harsher punisment. Having seen the effects of scandal on Michigan's program, I wouldn't wish it on anyone. And it wouldn't do the Big 10 any good to have another of those.

Definitely agree, especially with Ohio State's basketball program looking so great right now. Greg Oden here we come!!!!!
