How de-motivating is a football ban to a football program?
Is there a study or a history of teams banned from bowl play that demonstrates how it affects morale or effort on the field?

I'm questioning whether or not the whole Tribble/Davis debacle is really going to cascade down into the football side too much.

Auburn went 11-0 in 1993 when they were not only banned from postseason play, but were also banned from TV.

USC went 7-5 in 2010 and 10-2 in 2011 while banned from postseason play (but had appealed the scholarship losses, so those didn't go into effect until this year)

UF went 9-1-1 in 1985 and 6-5 in 1986 while banned from the postseason and TV.

Oklahoma State almost got the death penalty in 1989, but instead got a 3-year bowl and TV ban, where they went 4-7, 4-7, and 0-10 form 1989-1991, but they were limited to 20 scholarships per year during that time, too.

Basically, history shows that it isn't a big de-motivator. IMHO, the loss of scholarships and recruiting days will hurt more.

If it is a Penn State ban, it is a whole new ball game.

We already know it won't be anything more than one season. It could be 2012 if the appeal is denied expeditiously or withdrawn, or it could be 2013 if the appeal is denied after the season, or it could be granted and then no postseason ban will occur. The NCAA cannot tack on MORE penalties during an appeal, unless there is new evidence brought forth and the case is referred back to the COI.
