The actual penalties will probably amount to the same thing as the death penalty, just not as symbolic. Massive scholarship losses over four years, no bowl or conference championship games, and possibly most importantly the NCAA released all football players to transfer without having to sit out one year. If an exodus starts, it will be interesting if Happy Valley still fills up when they are losing 77-0 to Purdue.
Since players get to choose where to go to college, it's hard to imagine many top prospects choosing Penn State anytime soon.

Particularly with a guarantee that the player will NOT see a bowl game. That is a big strike for a prospect with NFL aspirations. He also knows scouts will take the school far less seriously. As one pundit/guru explained it, the NCAA bent their own rules so that teams picking up these players--who are leaving in droves--will be able to add on the scholarship. In other words, if you are only allowed, say, 20 scholarships, you can add former Penn State players and those who committed without it going against that total. So there is every incentive for other schools to snatch up these players.

Regarding you previous question, they can and do. Schools have been stripped of Final Four appearances even national titles:

USC Stripped of 2004 National Title

See the Olympics and other sports who happily retroactively enforce their rules. Something MLB may wish to consider when someone actually alive is running it. But I digress. . . .

I had the opportunity to hear the announcement. It is correct: the "death penalty" has a connotation. From a pure greedy not-caring-about-the-past, Penn State would have preferred the Death Penalty [Tm.--Ed.]. The infamous school that first received it received only a ONE year ban. They chose to keep it shut down for two. But there problem--nicely portrayed in an ESPN "30-for-30" documentary--they did not have the ability to attract top prospects without paying them. This is why they continued after the NCAA caught them. Without that, they quickly sank and other teams moved on.

A one to two-year ban--leave aside calls for "5-10-FOREVERSSS!" bans--would hurt but, as one Talking Head put it, Coach Bill O'Brien could argue to prospects and their parents that they could be part of a rebuilding of Penn State, "new legacy you will build, blah . . . blah." The lose of eligibility and scholarships pretty much kills any attractiveness for the next five years and probably longer. What prospect wishes to start up in a "loser school." He wants to be seen, get a chance to win, be seen, be seen winning, be seen, et cetera.

I see the argument for a Death Penalty for five years, but consider this--just thought of it--NOW all of the idiot Penn State supporters who STILL try to apologize for "Joe Pa" and the rest will have to watch their team SUCK for five to ten years. There will be games. There will be "real games." I have not looked to see if the Big Ten have ruled, but Penn State becomes a Bye Week on any schedule. It will be miserable for these types of people whose money and support rather drove the whole thing. Paterno had power because he generated  from alumni, fans, boosters, television contracts, and all of that.

Just ask Red Sox fans how they feel currently.

Fuck you!

That is the future of Penn State for the next half to probably whole decade.

Institutions erasing Paterno’s name from honors, awards
STATE COLLEGE MURAL (HALO ONLY)

A mural titled “Inspiration” including Paterno and Sandusky and other members of the State College community was painted near campus 12 years ago. After Sandusky was charged, his likeness was painted over. After Paterno died, artist Michael Pilato added a halo, to signify his death, not his holiness. After the release of the Freeh Report, he painted over the halo. He added a large blue ribbon, instead, on Paterno’s lapel symbolizing support for child abuse victims. Sandusky has been convicted and is awaiting sentencing.
Dude was actually painted in a mural with a halo? A fucking halo?

Like I said before, too many parallels with religion.

BTW, a halo does not symbolize a person's death, it symbolizes holiness.

I was wondering about this. Since local law enforcement didn't discharge their duties adequately (harumph), could this be a Federal Civil Rights case? Isn't there a parallel between what happened in the deep south in the 60's and what happened in PA? No one can deny that these kids were denied their civil rights, correct?

[off the cuff]

Local law enforcement? I thought it was only Penn State University officials who failed to discharge their duty to report the crimes to local law enforcement officials.

To maintain a federal civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. Section 1983, you have to sue the individuals involved and allege and prove they were acting under color of state or local law. Further, you have to allege and prove they deprived you of a right protected by the federal or state constitution or by law. What right is that? The right not to be the victim of a crime? Where in the constitution does it say that the government must protect you from that harm? The Supreme Court has held in case in of civil tort liability actions that generally, law enforcement officials do not owe citizens a duty to protect them from or to prevent crime or criminal activities.

The victims have grounds to sue Sandusky and possibly the other living Penn State officials who had a duty to report the incidents to the local law enforcement authorities, but those are likely to be state tort grounds, such as battery and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. I doubt you could make out a good federal civil rights complaint and have it survive a motion to dismiss or motion for summary judgment. I suspect this belongs in state court as a tort action, not a civil rights case.

The Progeny of the Pedophile Protector announced it would appeal the NCAA sanctions.

Immediate Response from NCAA: "Fuck you and the horse you road in on!"
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Joe Paterno's family said it planned to appeal the sanctions imposed by the NCAA against Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. The governing body's response: Don't bother.

Family lawyer Wick Sollers in a letter sent Friday to the NCAA said the Paternos would like to appeal the ''enormous damage'' done to Penn State, the community, athletes and the late Hall of Fame coach. He died in January at age 85.

But the NCAA quickly rejected their plan. ''The Penn State sanctions are not subject to appeal,'' spokesman Bob Williams said.

### UPDATE: Jerry Sandusky Wants to Be Moved to General Populati

Jerry Sandusky Wants to Be Moved to General Population.
This is a request I believe that should be granted.

I know there are a lot of people who believe that Sandusky will received some “prison justice” if he is put in with other inmates.

They did serenade him the other day as if they were waiting for him.

But, we will see how the prison will treat him and if they give him some form of protection even if he doesn’t deserve it.

Some just do not get it:
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- A Penn State trustee cited a need for due process in telling the NCAA on Monday that he intends to appeal college sports governing body's strict sanctions on the university for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Trustee Ryan McCombie said earlier Monday in a letter to fellow board members that he planned to take the action and sought an NCAA hearing. He invited other trustees to join in the appeal.

McCombie's lawyers later sent the NCAA their intent to appeal letter, saying they also represented other trustees.
Several other board members have indicated they will join the appeal, said McCombie's lawyer, Paul Kelly of the Boston-based firm Jackson Lewis. But Kelly did not provide a number or identify the other members, and said he was still gathering names.

Pedophiles? What Pedophiles?!
Fine. Now give them the death penalty in addition to the other penalties. Maybe the Cunts will learn.

The Penn State Board should resign based on the grossly incompetent way they handled the NCAA. They gave away the entire store & permanently ruined the school's reputation.

Rather vague critique there. I'd like him to say what he thinks they should have done.
Ten bucks says it's even stupider.

The reputation of the school was ruined by Sandusky, Paterno, the former president and others involved with the football program.

Has Trump had anything to say about them, or is his criticism only for the board of trustees?
