Should Penn State Get The Death Penalty?

64 posts in this topic

We'll find out tomorrow at 9am.

Reports are that it will not be the death penalty, but there will be very severe penalties, with some sources saying that the death penalty would have been preferable.

Yep. Looks like they will be intense.

CBS News has learned that the NCAA will announce what a high-ranking association source called "unprecedented" penalties against both the Penn State University football team and the school.

"I've never seen anything like it," the source told correspondent Armen Keteyian.

The NCAA could make the most of these unfortunate circumstances by levying punishments that would impact the school and not the athletes. Let's not forget that whatever penalties are imposed will effect the entire athletic department since the football program obviously brings in the most money, of which portions are doled out to the other athletic programs.

The penalties the NCAA imposes now on schools has little effect on the schools themselves and a far reaching impact on the athletes. The school will retain their portion of any TV contracts which is easily the biggest chunk of change they receive. Penalizing them with no bowl appearances will cost them a few mil and removing scholarships will only hurt athletes.

While they likely will not get the death penalty, let's not forget when SMU did, the school was forced to shut the fooball program down in 1987.

Again, I think the NCAA could make the best of a bad situation by allowing an open exit policy for any athlete on campus without requiring a sit-out year. As a matter of fact, I'd consider letting them leave with their scholarships so another school wouldn't have to pick up the tab.

Punish a whole bunch of innocent athletes for the mistakes of the past. Seems legit.

Says all the USC players bc of the sanctions from Reggie Bush

Every time they rule innocent people get punished this is even more heinous as it involved everyone from coaches to the AD to the president

There was vitually nobody left on the USC coaching staff or the entire team roster by the time the NCAA laid down to law on USC. It was so long after Reggie left USC that it had no impact on the players because none of them were there. So, with a roster full of players who never played with Reggie, USC simply kept winning, NCAA sanctions or not.

Thanks for proving my point?

I'm expecting a 3 year bowl ban, 40 scholarships lost and a hefty fine involved.

Basically a death sentence, but not really one.

HOLY CRAP!!!!

That was basically a death penalty

60m fine, 4 year bowl ban, 40 scholarships over 4 years and 5 years of probation. Wins vacated from 98 - 2011.

Pretty much wipes Joe from the NCAA record books
