A team should not lose wins, unless there is cheating involved. Punishing past and future players for the conduct of one man and a small group that may have helped over up his actions for whatever reasons is bs.
I think the point they were trying to make was that it was not just misconduct by one coach, but a conspiracy of silence by the entire football programme and the university authorities.
