The NCAA just hammered Penn St pretty hard. So hard that I'm thinking Penn was wishing they got the 'death penalty', they got something worse. The NCAA version of the 'death penalty' is when you shut down your entire operation for a season, it happened to SMU in the past, but the NCAA told Penn St to forget every season since 1998. All those wins vacated and Paterno's status as one of the most all time winningest coaches almost gone. Not to mention the fact the Nittany Lions have a new first year head coach who is extremely behind the eight ball since the NCAA also took scholarships from the university for the next four years as well as postseason bans. Guys like Lavar Arrington, Rob Bolden, Paul Posluszny, etc are suspose to forget they even played college football. The NCAA is overstepping it's boundaries here like it has done numerous times in the past and will do in the future. There should be no sanctions at all against the school because this was a legal matter that didn't have anything to do with any football players but you know the saying, win as a team and lose as a team. We will see if State can weather the storm here but who would blame recruits and coaches for wanting to jump ship at this point? I wouldn't.
I can't begin to tell u how Fu$ked up this decision is ! The present players or for that matter no players had anything to do with the sick actions of their coaches namely j. Sandusky . To punish the players is simply wrong and unwarranted ! I hopethe current coaches and players bail, I don't believe anyone would hold it against them ! Just my 2 cents.
