Here's the thing, I'm not saying that Penn St. doesn't deserve more punishment in light of what we now know, but JoePa is dead and Sandusky will be dead if the inmates can get to him. The Fire Crotch, should be banned from anything college football, for life and all the higher ups have been dismissed. Although, this is far more serious than boosters paying money, the problem people have all been punished. An example needs to be made to make sure that this never happens again but a true death penalty would be too much.
25 years however should do the trick.
"It's not like they couldn't replace them in a heartbeat. "
The rumors that I have heard were that if they tried to kick them out it could get tied up in the courts for awhile. I don't know how true that would be because if that is how Penn State would handle it that would look even worse for their image. If the Big Ten was to decide to kick them out Penn State could start to clean up it's image by maning up and excepting it.
The other question is, if you kick them out does that end their football program? What conference would pick them up? Also would you allow players to transfer out without having to sit out a year? I would allow players to leave unpunished, but this is the NCAA they try to act tough all the time.
"Sandusky is innocent, he said so"
No, you miss heard him. He said I am going at taking away a child's innocences.
Roddy White is just a mo..ron
You would think, but their 2013 class is already looking good... http://rivals.yahoo.com/footballrecruiting/football/recruiting/commitments/2013/pennst.-34;_ylt=AuzuBiebyIDp_cr24T9TmkNGPZB4
Probably helps now that their head coach actually goes on recruiting trips...
"true but a lot of the worst details are only starting to come out now"
well the one example everyone looks to is with SMU, but that was only for a few years. If giving improper benefits to players is enough to get a program axed I would think a coach <raping childeren while using the athletic facilities should be enough.
But yeah if you gave a 30 year ban to the football program that would be the same as cutting the team.
