It could also raise additional issues for Tennessee and Mississippi State, which are both currently on probation until the summer of 2015 for previous rules violations in their respective football programs.
The good thing is that it doesn't involve the schools at all. This is more like AJ Green getting money for his jersey. The players are the ones who are going to be punished (as long as they can't prove the coaches/schools knew about it which would be very hard to prove).
So most likely for TN our DT who is in this story is suspended some games (maybe the season just to be safe) and pays back the money.
In other words....
