By definition, a secondary violation is one that is isolated or inadvertent in nature, provides or is intended to provide only a minimal recruiting, competitive or other advantage and does not include any significant recruiting inducement or extra benefit. Most secondary cases are self-reported (either by the institution or through a conference office).

Secondary Infractions Self-Reporting - NCAA.org. Three violations, all directed at improperly publicizing the program's recruitment of various athletes, means that we are no longer talking about a violation "that is isolated . . . in nature." It's highly debatable that we're talking about a violation that is "inadvertent". In that way, I think it's time that these violations at Tennessee be upgraded from secondary to major. They no longer fit the definition of secondary violations.
