"It's really hard to know what ..., 7 July 2012 [cached]
"It's really hard to know what an allegation in this particular case would look like," said Mark Jones, a collegiate sports attorney for Ice Miller LLP in Indianapolis who worked with the NCAA for 18 years and was managing director of enforcement when he left in 2004.
Jones doesn't believe that is "in any way a likelihood," but he added that theoretically the NCAA does have the power to levy that dreaded penalty.
"It's a sanction that's available to the committee on infractions if they make a major finding," Jones said.

During the eight-hour hearing in November 2001, NCAA enforcement director Mark Jones expressed "every confidence" in Alabama officials, but said "we did not think they had control over Logan Young."
Jones cited the alleged involvement of Young and fellow Tide booster Ray Keller as a key factor in encouraging investigator Rich Johanningmeier to pursue allegations involving the recruitment of prospects Kenny Smith of Stevenson and Albert Means of Memphis.
"I think maybe I might have even said to (Johanningmeier) that if it was Logan Young or Ray Keller or somebody, it's probably worth doing," Jones said.
Jones said the NCAA was obligated to withhold information from Alabama involving alleged violations in the recruitment of Smith and Means - including the identity of a confidential source.
"Our obligation has to be for the development of the information, because we represent the rest of the schools," Jones said.
