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"
Just one thing......................
Penn St BLOWS.
The last QB to win a game at Penn State... Mike McQueary.
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?
