Not so very long ago, I would have said this was overkill.
But then, the rape apologists starting pouring out of the woodwork. "Oooh, you can't punish the program!" "But the football team had nothing to do with this!" Oh yes it did. Oh yes it freaking did. They had built a culture of enabling one of the single most despicable crimes that a human can commit. Meanwhile, their football program was thriving, not just culturally and financially as well. In short, it was built on the backs of these children.
And NOW the crocodile tears start to flow? Puh-lease; where was this sympathy when the story first broke? Anyone wanna remind us of the pathetically self-absorbed reaction when the scandal first broke last fall? I could care less if Penn State wins another football game. Ever. Their fans are pathetic enablers and absolutely are getting what they deserve.
