What would be the ramifications of Tressel? Could he coach during week just not 1st 6 Saturdays. Also could he recruit first day hired?
No clue to either but I see no way Hart can go that direction
He is essentially banned from coaching at the NCAA level for the duration of the show-cause. Note that I said "essentially" not "actually" because he can be hired if UT wants to live with additional penalties. One of the best explanations that I've read recently was in reference to hiring Tressel at UK, but the sentiment is mirrored almost exactly by UT.
"The NCAA could, with no problems whatever, slap recruiting restrictions, additional suspensions, financial penalties, even up to and including throwing UK out of the NCAA altogether. That last one is not going to happen, of course, but it could easily ban UK football from television, a situation that would surely be problematic for the SEC. And do you think Mike Slive is going to sit back and allow Kentucky to import a scofflaw like Tressel without taking a shot or two, especially if the NCAA decides to mess with their TV contract? I'm guessing he won't."
"The NCAA has the power to turn up the heat as high on Kentucky as necessary to make sure we don't put more money in the pocket of a man who violated NCAA rules as egregiously as Tressel. Add into the mix the fact that UK football is a serial NCAA violator over the years, and Barnhart cannot expect an iota of sympathy from the Committee on Infractions where Tressel is concerned."
Great coach. Not a terrible person. Never gonna happen.

You My dear victory-starved Wildcats fan, that cost could be vastly higher.
There would be an explosion in the popularity of orange sweater vests. It would be a catastrophe.
