Debate: Have the Sanctions Affected Ohio State Long Term, If at All?

As we all know, Ohio State was hit with some offseason sanctions, including a one-year bowl ban, and 9 vacated scholarships over the next 3 years. However, the Buckeyes seem to be doing better than ever, undefeated at 8-0 and currently sitting in the top-10 of rivals 2013 recruiting rankings. 

Have you seen any changes in Ohio State following the sanctions? Or was this just a brush off the back? Do you think anything will come of them?

Give us your thoughts on how the Buckeyes may, or may not, be affected by the punishment they accepted during the offseason.
