Those who can, do; those who can't, coach; those who never could, complain about the first two.
Those were all made up by the mod at scout's Washington site fyi. Oregon hasn't even received a notice of allegations yet

It's interesting so many people were agreeing and enjoying the harsh penalties listed in the OP.
Is that because you want to see harsher punishments across the board to violators or you think that what Oregon did was far worse than Ohio State, etc, and the Ducks deserve stricter punishments?
Without any true basis for this opinion; I think Oregon is viewed as more corrupt that OSU. It may simply be that Oregon's recruiting violations had more impact in the state of Texas than Ohio State's did.
Paying for recruits is far, far more harmful to the sport than allowing current players to make money selling their things on the side, and is an actual tangible advantage given to the cheating team.
Oregon could benefit on the field by buying a recruit. OSU doesn't see any benefit on the field when Terrelle Pryor trades a jersey for a tattoo.
BTW, the part about banning OOS recruiting makes the whole OP suspect. Never heard of such a thing from the NCAA, sounds made up.
If true, Oregon needs to get hit hard, but I'll believe it if/when it happens. Until then, it's much ado about nothing.

the violations were far more egregious than anything I've seen in the past decade. Bama got a bowl ban and that was a booster.
oregon's HEAD COACH knew he was paying for a player and oregon's HEAD COACH new about attempts to cover it up, it's on the the athletic department's books for chrissake.
Did you happen to catch the Shapiro and Miami case?
There needs to be harsher penalties accross the board to make cheating more costly. This won't remove the problem but it will change the cost benefit analysis for some programs. Ultimately there needs to be a temporary coaching ban or serious monetary penalty levied directly against the coaches who facilitate or allow the cheating. This would motivate people who are in a position to curb or stop the activities.
Loss of conf TV revenue for a year for the school on probation would have college/univ presidents take notice...I'm sure the other 11 schools in the Pac-12 would love to take Oregon's share of the Pac-12 ABC deal...or the Fox Sports West coast deal...or the bowl TV money
