    I agree that what happened was beyond ****ed up. All the players involved are either rotting or in jail though. The NCAA had crippled PSU to basically the level of a FCS team for the next 6 or 7 years. What more do you want? IMO the sanctions were excessive for the face that the people they really hurt had nothing to do with the scandal. Obviously they should have received some punishment as an institution, but what the NCAA handed down plus what they are going to be sued for is devastating.

    Tyler in todays court system getting a judgment and a payout are completely different animals. PSU has the fire power to tie up any judgment in appellate court for years.
    The above post is not subject to penalty under the TOS I declare the Hayden Fox defense. " It is impossible for the staff to know my context therefore I cannot be penalized"

    What they got is worse than the death penalty. A 4 year bowl ban ensures that not a single recruit worth a damn will bat an eye at Penn State for about 3 years at least. If it were Miami Id far rather they shut the program down for a year than for that to happen.

    Given the seriousness of the crimes and the level the cover up reached I think the NCAA was morally bound to send one message. "If as a institution you commit a heinous crime our conspire to cover up said crime you no longer have the PRIVILEGE to play the sport you lied to protect"

    They sacrificed the appeal by signing in agreement of the sanctions.

    On the "NCAA has no jurisdiction" front:

    If this judgement amounts to a competitive disadvantage (which I doubt anyone would argue with), then how could a cover up -- which for 13 years prevented the punishment -- have been anything but a competitive advantage for Penn State during in the years when Paterno and others smothered the story?

    Surely those who actively engaged in the cover up were worried about more than their legacies or Penn State's good name. They were worried about the program being affected, about losing scholarships and bowl games. To me it seems clear the absence of deserved punishment amounts to a competitive advantage, which would therefore mean the NCAA has jurisdiction.

    Does anyone have a thought along these lines?

    My thought is it us the NCAA's host and they make the rules. Every organization has a catch all rule they can user. Just like law enforcement careless driving, disorderly conduct etc.

    I was hoping for a response more rational than some version of "they can do anything they want", perhaps something even based in facts.
