The penalties are designed for what exactly? Punish the innocent students for something that a staff member did? Imagine what that does to all of their programs not just sports. This kind of stain doesn't wash off at all. And whats the deal with the statue?
Hmmm yea that makes sense, all this really does is kill the town that the school sits in economically, who wants to go to PSU after this? Pervert Statutory University......
100% Agree . This is extending culpablitiy past the real perpetrators and punishing the innocents. FOR SHAME.
Tell me how these sanctions are hard on the students.
I will, as soon as you tell me how taking $60M out of the school's budget won't have any consequence on the resources available to the school.
Because I think it would then be apt for the fans to hang that head a little lower for 4 years, share the shame in the same way.
Look, I'm sorry... But are you nuts? How does John Doe who loves football and his school is guilty of some pervert's criminal actions, and the cover up staged by the high brass? Why does he need to hang his head low? What DID HE DO?
Paterno's last years salary and bonuses totaled 1.2 million bucks.

Wait, what? Please tell me, how raping little boys would yield more victories.......
Is that the yankees secret too?
These colleges are supposed to be controlled by the state, they are public universities. They should clean house of all the corrupted college officials and find new ones. Then they could restore some scholarships and allow them to play unrestricted. College is supposed to be about teaching kids not glorifying football. If the college would have gotten rid of Sandusky when the first incident occured, none of this would have happened. This is all about covering up things and not taking care of problems that exist.

Paterno wasn't really the problem. He told the people above him and they buried it twice. He worked for these people and when you work for someone you do as they say or you quit. If he would have gone to the police they would have somehow gotten rid of him.
