Around these parts, every 5th person you meet is a Penn State alum. They are mostly going bullshit.

I am glad the fine is going to charity as that part of the punishment will not hurt PS in the least - the boosters and alumni will raise those funds in a month.

Cherry, that is true about almost any NCAA sanction against a school. It's a necessary evil if there is to be any enforcement of NCAA rules.

The good thing for the current players is that they can transfer to another program if they want, without having to sit out a year as is normally the case for a player to transfer.

You can call me Al.

The Paterno/PSU "aura" made recruiting top flight athletes possible. That aura is not only gone, it's an albatross.

I agree Al (can I call you Al?)

Without Paterno, PSU would have never been a power house school to begin with. Now, they will lose out on scholarships and recruits, kids will jump to other schools (if not this year than next when other big time programs can free up a scholarship for them) and no big time coach will come near that program for YEARS to come. They will find themselves competing with Indiana and their ilk for low level bowl games at best once the bans are lifted.

Those combined penalties over that time frame might even be worse than the "death penalty" for one year.

The fine will go to child abuse charities...the actions of the NCAA were justified and IMHO, sufficient. I have no argument with the punishment whatsoever.

Talk about "death penalty"!

Penn State has removed the statue of Paterno and put it into storage.

NCAA spanks Penn State HARD! Was it enough? Four years, no bowl games, loss of 10 scholarships per year. Also all games 1998 - 2011 are forfeited and are losses. All current scholarship athletes are free to go to other schools without a waiting period to play. $60,000,000 fine.
