No football for the next 3 years. Let all the players transfer to other schools. The price for looking the other way while children were raped and damaged forever.....in fact, ban the football program for life, since they didn't care

I agree. SMU got the proverbial CFB death penalty for much less.
PSU tried to protect their brand instead of the kids. Its sick.
I used to be a big Joe Pa admirer. There is a special place in hell for him now Im sure.
And all those big power people (you know the same ones who ordered people around arrogantly) who have also commited the crimes need to see a lot of time behind bars.
The corruption at that school is sickening!

The egomaniac and megalomaniac JoPa destroyed Penn State football a long time ago when he refused to retire, dragging the whole state down with him. The rest of the Paternos should be tarred, feathered, and run out of Happy Valley on a rail; they're a disgrace! To bad they can't be sued into poverty.

I feel, the NCAA came down, just a tad too harsh on Penn State football.....not sure about, negating past wins or what that's about....the reduction of scholarships is deadly to a program.....that will do the most damage.....

Why does the NCAA feel their can take 60M from the state of PA? I have no problem with the victims suing
and I hope they do and win....but why is the NCAA picking their pockets? I don't care about what other things the NCAA wants to do....but taking the 60M is just greet.

My only regret is that Paterno didn't live long enough to see all the shame and humiliation he caused Penn State and that he didn't get to listen to what the victims had to say when their court date appears.

Of course I am assuming that he and Hitler are sharing a bunk together in HELL! I hope when Sandusky gets there he remembers to tell him about the statue coming down.

I feel the NCAA didn't come down hard enough imo. I had a lot of respect for JoPa till now. And to allow that to go on and look the other way is beyond my belief. Penn St shouldn't be allowed to play football at all for a few years imo. I don't want you to think I hate Big 10 Football because I don't just the crime here. I would feel the same if it was Georgia or Bear Bryant imo.

Not against the NCAA, the fine iis going to be put to good use. It will he'll build and maintain abuse against children centers.
I think the big ten should drop them as well. Now for the current players, they should be given a pass to enroll at another school with no penalty.

Penn state will never be the same again, it will take 100 yrs or more, and that generation will just know it as a scandal, but we for now know it as horrible. Joe should have yanked sandusky by the ears, and bbooted his butt out when he first heard about it. Too bad for joe, he was too consumed in his football, and that's sad, because he was a great coach.

Sandusky was responsible for Paterno's greatest victories and Penn States reputation as Linebacker U. The egomaniac and megalomaniac JoePa was a fraud and should have retired a long time ago.

All these penalties from the NCAA are going to do is squash the dreams of hundreds more young boys who have grown up aspiring to go play football for Penn State. How does that help the victims heal? Joe Paterno did as much as he could do! He went to his superiors! My daughter is a teacher and she cannot call the police if one of her children tells her they have been abused or if she suspects it. She has to report it to her superiors. Then they contact Children's Services and they investigate and they contact the police. There is a process that has to be followed! Joe did his job the Athletic Director and the President FAILED those children, NOT Joe Paterno! For God 's sake people enough is enough! Let this man rest in peace!!!!!

Joe had more power then anyone at penn state. When he seen nothing was done he should have followed up. Its obvious he was thinking more of himself them innocent children. His lack of caring caused more children to be abused over the years. disgusting

It might be squashing the dreams of the college footballer want to bes but these penalties are at least some justice for the victims. The actual victims of a CRIME and CRIMINAL. The want to bes are NOT 'victims' because the school they voluntarily chose to attend is being sanctioned for a criminal cover up in the ATHLETIC department and NOT the education department.
