    Wow. Haven't heard this. All of the things I read related to possible punishments on Twitter said that they would get harsh treatment but not the death penalty.

    College football is now all about making millions and millions. No way does the Big 10 allow one of their prized money makers go down without a fight. Losing Penn State is incredibly bad for the Big 10 conference. Michigan, Ohio State...all of them need Penn State. At the end of the season when it comes time to select the four to play for a title, Michigan and Ohio State don't want a committee looking over their watered down schedule and taking the one-loss SEC school.

    The Death Penalty was so long ago. Anytime a program gets in trouble it's so much fun to just toss that phrase out there. It's not practical punishment in this day and age. The NCAA is not out to execute programs anymore. It happened one time to one program who at the time was already on probation AND keeping books. Even at Miami and Penn State, two programs who currently aren't on probation, things are still hidden. There are some things that happened at Penn State that we'll never know about. But damn near everything was discovered at SMU because they ran their renegade program like a legitimate business.

    Id be stunned if the NCAA handed Penn State the death penalty.
    Agree with everything you said, but just wanted to point out that even then the NCAA didnt want to use the death penalty. They kept threatening, they kept throwing on violations, and SMU kept laughing in their face. It took years before they had the balls to finally kill SMU.

    You guys want to see delusional...go read the free boards over on Penn State's Rivals site.

    Penn State has been viewed as one of the cleanest programs in college football history. Then a coach butt****s some little boys and Joe Paterno helps with the cover up and all of a sudden ESPN is out to get them and there's a witch hunt lol. Really? A witch hunt? Little boys were raped in the showers and there's a witch hunt?

    I love how ESPN is blamed for everything when people can't take responsibility for their own actions.

    Honestly, everyone involved is already being punished legally or dead. I dont think they really deserve much more than a bowl ban and some scholarship losses

    Over on TMB, the vast majority of PSU fans have actually turned on Paterno and are glad to see the statue down.

    Well that's because the Mainboard only allows the greatest collection of sports fans to post...like myself.

    The Scout boards have the high majority of PSU fans seeing Paterno for what he is and are accepting the impending punishment. Always a few idiots in denial

    I am with Tyler. Schollies and bowl games is appropriate and all revenues earned for X amount of years goes to the victims and support groups for victims of pedophiles.

    don't think these people really hate Paterno. I think they hate themselves. They hate themselves because their schools
    never had the courage, the will, the ethics or the honor to hold themselves to
    the standards to which Joe Paterno held Penn State.
    Joe Paterno was more than just a football
    coach or even a man. He was an ideal,
    and he held himself and Penn State to that ideal. That other schools and coaches didn't has
    always driven their fans into jealous fits of rage.
