Should be 10, death penalty for worst academic fraud, but prob 6

More than 1500 athletes took bogus courses which required no work, no attendance, but took irrelevant grammar school level writings for "credit". Many elite athletes were given grades needed to keep them academically eligible by the AFAM admin who researched exactly what grade each needed. Academic advisors steered athletes to these classes knowing they were guaranteed to get a high level grade.

Even though the classes were only 47% athletes (compared to the 4% of student population), the giving of fraudulent grades was an impermissible benefit available only to athletes.

This is the most massive academic fraud in NCAA history, carried on for 17 plus years, resulting in UNC illegally winning multiple NCAA & ACC championships and millions of ill-gotten NCAA & football bowl revenue.

Proportional punishment would be forfeiture of all games & championships where athletes who reached these grades participated and 3 year death penalty on any athletic programs who used significant number of ineligible students, ie football & mens basketball for certain, maybe others.

NCAA can't punish those who actually played so it's only weapon to deter future violators is to hammer. If they don't, Louisville, Syracuse and others who were punished for various infractions far less egregious should be outraged.
