This is silly - properly sold, the sanctions are a recruiting advantage.
Off the top of the head, here's what a new top recruit gets from SC:
Immediate starting. At other schools most recruits redshirt.
Lots of playing time. Even if they don't redshirt few freshmen get significant playing time.
Playing in a bowl in their soph year as a soph. (if they make a bowl - likely, since bowls are so watered down.)
Being a leader on the team when the swarm of 5stars arrive in your junior year.
