What a bunch of ****!Oh and vacating wins is about the most worthless meaningless punishment there is!
    Something tells me that no matter what the penalties were, you would have been upset about it.
    but when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was "Stannis! Stannis! STANNIS!"

    Take a step back and look at the message it sends! Do you think one victim watched that get released and feels like justice was served? Seriously some worthless wins vacated and a 4yr bowl ban? Wow PSU can't make its annual trip to the Citrus Bowl for a embarrassment. Do you really want to argue saving a institutions right to play a game versus child rape?
    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"

    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.
    And make no mistake, the victims will be getting plenty from the school through their lawsuits, which are only supported by this punishment.

    Spare me the fine is a joke the program probably generated a hundred times that during those years! Wake up the scholarship losses isn't that big of deal either schools work around that penalty all the time.

    Actually, I think considering the NCAA's power here, it DOES send a message.

    "We'll destroy the winningest coach in our sport. What do you think we'll do to YOU if you step out of line?"
    ... the legend is no more.



    It's not like the NCAA can stab the offenders in the groin. (would be nice, but outside their authority )

    I'm not exactly sure what you wanted them to do. Death penalty? Meh, none of the parties involved are still there.

    Yep death penalty absolutely! Firing offenders should not lesson a punishment. The problem here is on the surface the NCAA makes an announcement claiming stiffest punishment ever then after the out cry for justice settles the NCAA lightens the punishment during the appeal process. Take USC for example 2yr bowl ban, and loss of 30 scholarships over a 3yr period. Then later the NCAA decided to not enforce the loss of scholarships till after the bowl ban.

    Let's not compare 80 scholarships to 30. Not to mention Penn State can only sign 15 a year instead of 25 so if more than 15 kids leave each year for graduation, the draft, transfer, etc. too bad. Penn State isn't working around these sanctions. They're ****ed for a damn long time. Probably won't even be in the Big 10 in a few years after being incapable of being competitive in the conference. This is worse than shutting down the program for a couple years.

    Bro, they decimated the program. This isn't a few Schollies like Ohio State. They lose 10 initially and 20 total for 3 additional years. Nobody will want to attend that school in fact, one recruit has already decommitted. All players are eligible to transfer without penalty and schools can go over their limit to accommodate PSU transfers.

    This is far worse then what the death penalty would have been.

    Yes USC got around the scholarship reduction by having time to stock up but Penn State is not appealling. No comparison.
