Did NCAA punish Miami fairly?

It took more than two years, but one of the NCAA's messier recent chapters is over now that college sports' governing body has punished Miami for recruiting violations connected to convicted swindler and former Hurricanes booster Nevin Shapiro. The discipline included scholarship losses in football and basketball and a five-game suspension for current Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith. But there's no bowl ban for the Hurricanes, who sat out two postseasons as self-punishment while awaiting a ruling.

What do you make of Miami avoiding a bowl ban but losing nine total scholarships over three years as a result of its connection to the Nevin Shapiro scandal?
