I found out at a Turnpike rest stop on the way home for break.

I wonder when Penn State will hit rock bottom. Every day is lower than the one before. Hopefully soon.

Rock bottom may come soon... the NCAA has decided to investigate Penn State for "lack of institutional control," which tends to lead to the death penalty in the most severe cases, of which this certainly applies.

That's great. My big job next year has to do with covering football, so the death penalty would just be perfect. That will solve everything. Awesome.

the ncaa won't give them the death penalty. the school has already given themselves the death penalty

they are going to overhaul the coaching staff and there will be recruits who will either back out or not even consider penn state.

they are going to be fucked competitively for a very long time. sorry peef

Okay, for non college sports fans, what does "death penalty" mean in the world of the NCAA? Does it just mean the whole program gets killed? Would that be for all sports, or just football?

(.... NCAA would include football, right? /clueless)

It would mean football would be banned for a year or two, completely destroying its ability to recruit for at least a decade.

SMU got the death penalty in 1987. Since that time they've lost almost three times as many games as they've won and have only been to one bowl game.

This is the rumor that's been making the rounds. I am as wary as you all are, but this is what has been said.

If there's one thing that's been exaggerated in all this, it is Paterno's authority. Yes, he had the ability to tell them to fuck off when they asked him to resign in 2004, but that was purely because they didn't want to fire him and deal with the public backlash. It certainly doesn't mean he could do whatever he wanted behind the scenes.

And he was never friends with Sandusky. They respected each other as football minds but they never got along very well.

All that said, this rumor sounds like a desperate Penn State fan hoping for the best possible light for Paterno.

It would make him look better, but I'd still wish He'd have gone to the police anyways. A full investigation means the police would have interviewed him, and obviously they didn't. Id be feeling suspicious at that point, I think.

Yeah, he still could have done the right thing and gone to the cops if he was that mad. That probably would have kept Sandusky away like he wanted.
