Here's where I think the NCAA arguably got it right. The football program brings in a lot of revenue and employment for that town. Shutting down the program would have had an economic shock throughout that community.

Re: Sex Abuse Scandal Rocks Penn State

Looks like the Big Ten didn't do a damned thing really.

Big Ten Conference Censures Penn State « Big Ten Network

Quote:
Among the penalties, the Big Ten says Penn State will not be allowed to share in the conference’s bowl revenues while it is banned from the postseason by the NCAA. Here are the conference’s additional sanctions on Penn State:

Censure: The accepted findings support the conclusion that our colleagues at Penn State, individuals that we have known and with whom we have worked for many years, have egregiously failed on many levels—morally, ethically and potentially criminally. They have failed their great university, their faculty and staff, their students and alumni, their community and state—and they have failed their fellow member institutions in the Big Ten Conference. For these failures, committed at the highest level of the institution, we hereby condemn this conduct and officially censure Penn State.

Probation: The Big Ten Conference will be a party to the Athletic Integrity Agreement referenced in the NCAA release, and will work closely with the NCAA and Penn State to ensure complete compliance with its provisions over the 5 year term of the Agreement.

Ineligibility: As referenced in the NCAA release, Penn State’s football team will be ineligible for postseason bowl games. It will also be ineligible for Big Ten Conference Championship Games for four years, a period of time that runs concurrently with the NCAA postseason bowl ban imposed this morning.

Fine: Because Penn State will be ineligible for bowl games for the next four years, it will therefore be ineligible to receive its share of Big Ten Conference bowl revenues over those same four years. That money, estimated to be approximately $13 million, will be donated to established charitable organizations in Big Ten communities dedicated to the protection of children.

Reading that and the comment section has me shaking my head. Amazing some people still dont get it.

When I read PSU fans call the Freeh report baseless, incomplete, baised, etc. makes think the government should clear everyone out of Happy Valley and the military should just nuke Beaver Stadium and destory the surrounding area. These people just dont seem to get it...its extremely disturbing.

My buddy just texted me and said, "Congratulations, you just won the 2005 Orange Bowl.



I had to laugh at this tweet by Gano.

Additional actions by the Big 10: PSU will forfiet their share of Conference Bowl Game revenues and it will be donated to charities for child abuse.

The ball has just begun to roll.

Penn State losing recruits because of penalties - Sports News from USA Today


Say goodbye to that #1 QB recruit.

Re: Sex Abuse Scandal Rocks Penn State

While we're talking about changes in State College, they need to change their uniforms now.

Paterno INSISTED on keeping the plainest-possible uniforms. No logo, no names.

That look is part of his now-destroyed legacy. The statue is down, the road names are changing, lets finish the job and update their uniforms finally. Move on.

Re: Sex Abuse Scandal Rocks Penn State

Graham Spanier wants to set record straight with Penn State Nittany Lions' Board of Trustees - ESPN


Hey guys, I don't recall a conversation about child molestation about one of the more prominent people in the state of Pennsylvania. Even though you have emails in which I was copied twice, this is no substantial proof that I knew anything.


This guy would make for a great politician. Full of shit till his last breath.

Re: Sex Abuse Scandal Rocks Penn State

Apparently the Big Ten was considering removing Penn State's membership in the conference. They just decided to take the $13million/year in Bowl money instead.

I'm looking forward to seeing the Indiana Hoosiers rip them apart on the gridiron every year from now on.

Looking over their schedule, they open with the Ohio Bobcats, a good team...not the usual cupcake opener.

Then Virginia, Navy and Temple before the Big 10 teams.

They could lose every game.

I especially want Navy to blow their doors off...a program with real role models, unlike PSU.

I imagine they'll be competitive this year with seniors and juniors choosing to stay. It'll be the depth and the future teams that will most likely cause the PSU program to suffer. Not like PSU was that great to begin with. Over the past decade, I think they've average 8 wins a season? Pretty mediocre if you ask me.

Someone on the local talk radio station just suggested the melt the bronze statue down into some kind of commemorative coins and sell them with the profits going to charity since a lot of people would want a piece of that statue.

Sounds OK aside from the sick part about selling that statue to the twisted Paterno-worshippers, even if they money will do good.

Re: Sex Abuse Scandal Rocks Penn State

Some more well versed PSU fans articulating their displeasure. Don't these idiots know they are attaching their names to such hateful words?


"I HOPE U ALL FUCKIN DIE" And Other Reasoned, Measured Responses To The NCAA's Penn State Punishment


Hope their employers find out. (or future ones)
