The Tostitos Fiesta Bowl: Tilting Away From Corruption Since 2011, Mostly

In the wake of the BCS presidential oversight committee's levying of a $1 million fine against the Fiesta Bowl Wednesday, the NCAA (whose licensing committee must still hand down a decision on the further fate of the game) released a statement reminding us that there's still a chance for some actually punishing punishment to be meted out in this investigation (to say nothing of the scourge of the Insight Bowl, yet to be laid to rest!) Here's NCAA Vice President of Communications Bob Williams:

The BCS task force actions regarding the Fiesta Bowl are serious and constructive steps in the right direction. The NCAA postseason bowl licensing subcommittee will review the task force report as it considers whether to reaffirm the Fiesta Bowl and Insight Bowl licenses for the coming season. The subcommittee is planning to meet next week and expects to make a decision in the near future.

"Steps" is perhaps not the term we would use, considering how much money the Fiesta Bowl lost and could afford to lose. Shuffles in the right direction? Perhaps a strong lean?
