    Penn State: Punitive Measures announced Monday

    Sounds like they are about to get whacked hard. How quickly that program has been ripped apart.

    I think it's gonna be pretty stout and I'm interested to see what they get.

    Whatever Penn State gets will be more than what we get in the end. This will be a good a good measuring stick for Miami.

    The Canes penalty will pale in comparison to what PSU will get. I would be surprised if the Canes got more then a few scholarships and a bowl game.

    This could get interesting just because QB Christian Hackenberg's commitment is very much in play based on this decision, no matter what he or the press say.

    This might sound cynical, but my first thought is this is just window dressing for the NCAA. Similar to when Rex Ryan and the Jets handed out a unprecendented(!!!) suspension of Braylon Edwards....in which Edwards was suspended for 15 minutes. Im willing to bet the NCAA will set up a huge press conference(raking in ratings) and act like suspending a few bowl games is a huge deal while Penn State oh so reluctantly argees with the enforcements. You know, before everyone goes back to their board rooms and laughs.

    If they do hand out something even somewhat close to the death penalty, ill be stunned.

    Agreed but it'll be interesting to see how WE handle this over the next few days. Before we self-imposed because we knew we had committed violations. We may self-impose this time to avoid serious sanctions from the NCAA in the future.

    I think the NCAA has put itself into a position that they have to hammer PSU.

    I am starting to hear that it is now several sources indicating if given an option over what is coming and the death penalty, the choice PSU would make is the death penalty. I read 5 years of bowl bans and complete loss of scholarships. Of course we all know

    Whatever the penalties are, they should include vacating all wins from 2001-2011.
