Now the team will have to enter the 2019 college football season with the knowledge that a successful campaign won't lead them to a bowl game, pending appeal.
According to the NCAA bylaws, Bryant could opt out of his Missouri commitment and play elsewhere without penalty. That would last through the SEC Tournaments for baseball and softball this May, and the Tigers would be allowed to participate while the appeal is being reviewed.
"Once these issues were brought to our attention in November 2016, the university moved swiftly and fully cooperated with the NCAA Enforcement staff to jointly investigate the allegations that were made", Missouri athletic director Jim Sterk said in a statement.
Does he decide to stay at Missouri and play out the year knowing that the team will be banned from postseason play?
Although the tutor said she felt pressure to ensure student-athletes passed courses, according to the committee's report, the investigation did not support that her colleagues directed her to complete the student-athletes' work.

This means that anyone with net taxable income up to Rs 5 lakh will not be required to pay any taxes. So, only those whose total income does not exceed Rs 5 lakh will be eligible for the benefit.
In its report on Mizzou, the NCAA drew a distinction from a case involving "paper courses" taken by athletes at North Carolina. The committee found that Kumar also completed math coursework from other schools for six of the student-athletes, including an entire course for a football player.
David Roberts, the chief hearing officer for the infractions panel, defended the penalties. Each program will also have 5 percent fewer scholarships for the upcoming year, and a series of recruiting restrictions that include fewer visits.
Roberts said the former tutor, Yolanda Kumar, along with the school and NCAA all agreed that infractions took place, and at that point it comes down to applying proscribed penalties. "In support of that position, UNC asserted that although courses were created and graded by an office secretary, student-athletes completed their own work".
A 10-year show-cause order for Kumar, during which any NCAA member school that employs her must restrict her from any athletically related duties. "Here, by contrast, Missouri acknowledged that the tutor completed student-athletes' work".
Tacked onto that, if the appeal isn't successful, is a 1 percent deduction from the football, softball and baseball program's budgets.
If you understand that, then let me know. The Committee on Infractions tried to distinguish the difference on Thursday. Sterk later sent a letter to Kumar confirming that she had provided impermissible benefits and that she could no longer be associated with the athletic department. "We will move forward living up to our frequently stated ideal of "Win it Right" and vigorously defend this unjust penalty".
