Badger Bits: Tressel fallout continues; Should the NCAA have a 'death penalty' for coaches?

Holy crap, it's June already. That means we have just over three months until college football makes another glorious return. Get excited. In the meantime, we still have some Tresselmania to cover, so let's dive right in.

Paul Newberry of Madison.com thinks the NCAA should institute a 'death penalty' for coaches who violate its rules, similar to the 'death penalty' the NCAA used on SMU in the late '80s. Newberry suggests the NCAA ban coaches after two violations, and says the policy would stop coaches *cough*JohnCalipari*cough* from skipping around to new positions ahead of the investigations.

Hillary Lee of Off Tackle Empire and SB Nation Chicago looks at the fallout after a few major coaching changes (Wisconsin included!), and what it means for the future of the Ohio State football program. Granted, we haven't learned about the inevitable NCAA punishments, but it's interesting to see how some programs recover from coaching changes.
