Good Knowing You Penn State Football

-$60 million dollar fine.

-4 year bowl/postseason ban.

-Significant scholarship reductions of 10 per year for a four-year period.

-All wins from 1998 to 2011 vacated. Sorry JoePa. You just went from 1st to 7th in head coaching victories.

-All current Penn State football players are eligible to transfer without having to sit out a year.

Basically the Penn State football program is dead. No 5 star recruit is going to want to go to Happy Valley when they know they can't play in the postseason or compete for a conference title. It was good...well...not really...knowing you Penn State football. You protected and knowingly covered up for a serial child rapist on your own campus. This penalty by the NCAA was deserved and justified.

Interesting that an arguably WORSE offense (at least morally) was treated less harshly by not resulting in the death penalty being leveled. I know all the people involved are dead or gone, and that it would have negatively affected the community's local economy, but if this doesn't warrant the death penalty, what does? Would Jerry have had to rape a boy on the 50 on gameday?
