I’d be surprised if the NCAA would levy much of a penalty.
The NCAA is a little between a rock and a hard place on NC State.
On the one hand, all of the bad actors have been gone for several years. And after reading the Notice of Allegations, it's clear the NCAA is focusing on those individuals. That would seem to indicate some show cause orders are likely and maybe not much else, like what happened at UConn.
On the other hand two of the allegations are very similar to what happened at the end of the Jim Valvano era and which brought his career to an end. State was given a post-season ban and two years of scholarship reductions then. The Committee on Infractions is supposed to take into account a school being a repeat offender - even when the offense was long ago.
I think at a minimum, Mark Gottfried and Orlando Early get show cause orders and State gets a couple years of scholarship reductions. But because of the Valvano-era violations, it wouldn't surprise me to see them get hammered.
And of course what ever happens with State is going to serve as precedent for the other 5+ schools that are going to get hit.
Woohoo a couple of scholarships
That, plus the show cause orders, is the floor not the ceiling.
