None. The NCAA used an obscure clause that allows them to arbitrarily punish a member "for the good of the game", whether or not they actually broke any rules. It was a cop out, the NCAA trying to make it look like they were being proactive, when there was nothing to be proactive about. The criminal case hadn't even begun, yet the almighty NCAA already knew the straight poop, and had all info they needed to act. I would be shocked if the NCAA pres didn't get this advice from Goodell himself.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.
