What an absolute joke! Countless children had their lives ruined by unspeakable actions and PSU has to sit out 4yrs of being embarrassed in the Outback Bowl! Just curious what is the NCAA going to do with the money from the fine? Are they going to start a trust for the victims? More then likely they will be out private jet shopping and Nike will stroke a check to cover the fine!Look at the excuses to protect the Big Ten? What a bunch of ****!Oh and vacating wins is about the most worthless meaningless punishment there is!
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"
Looks like the scholarship penalties are...
15 scholarships instead of 25 handed out each recruiting year for 4 years.
65 scholarship players instead of 85 allowed on the roster during the season for 4 years.
The last 14 years of JoePa's wins ERASED.
A fitting posthumous **** you for all he REALLY cared about.
1) Win the next game.
2) See goal #1
"The problem with internet quotes lies in verifying their authenticity."
Save the ranting Ryan. This is worse then the death penalty and if you had actually listened you would know the fine comes from football revenues not boosters.
There is no way you can ever give back the victims their lives before these egregious acts but this is a strong message for the future.
Sure enough, no shutting down the program for any seasons. The sanctions will hurt and they might be reduced to Indiana status for some time, but PSU can recover from this. Wonder who all decides to leave.
INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA has had its say on Penn State. Now it's the Big Ten's turn.
The Big Ten will announce its own punishment for Penn State for massive failings during the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal at the school. University of Iowa president Sally Mason, the chair of the Big Ten's Council of Presidents/Chancellors, will discuss the penalties along with league commissioner Jim Delany at 11 a.m. ET. Big Ten presidents and chancellors announced their own investigation into the problems at Penn State back in December.
What will the Big Ten do? The NCAA already has hammered Penn State with heavy scholarship losses, fines and a four-year postseason ban. ESPN.com has learned the Big Ten doesn't want to be redundant with its penalties. Unlike the NCAA, which collaborated with Penn State in advance of Monday's announcement, the Big Ten will act on its own.
The big question is whether the Big Ten will expel Penn State. My conversations with league sources indicate this will not happen, although the presidents considered the option. Big Ten bylaws state 70 percent of the league's presidents -- in this case, nine of 12 -- must vote for Penn State's removal to trigger expulsion.
