    Since anybody who heads the program going forward would likely have had nothing to do with the scandal I see no reason to shelve them.

    I say 'yes'.

    Though it's really more of 'Temporary Coma' penalty (if SMU was any example).

    Only if the NCAA can provide a good answer to this question: why should the thousands of students and numerous athletes who chose that university, and have done nothing wrong, be punished for the actions of a few people?

    What? The entire reason for the PSU "scandal" was the cover up, the entire reason for the cover up, was PSU FOOTBALL. To assert, that without PSU football and the MONEY it generated, that there would have been ANY reason for the cover up is baffling. I agree that the NEW players, suckered into signing at PSU, have no blame, but without PSU there is still plenty of opportunity for both college and football, just not there. I say auto "red shirt" them and let them seek scholarships elsewhere. PSU will likely be sued nearly out of existance, to use funds generated by the NEW football players to repay judgements for past ILLEGAL acts is INSANE. The NCAA should not let football (or any sport) subsidize illegal activity past or present.

    Not really. SMU hasnt really recovered from it. They have only had 3 winning seasons since the "death penalty."

    If they figure out a way to do it without penalizing the players i would be for it. Its not their fault after all. Hopefully there will be criminal charges for the people involved in the cover up.

    Not just the players, but other programs and students. Football provides a rather large amount of money to schools through ticket sales, licensing, and other fees. Killing the program entirely because a dead man, a child molester, and a few other idiots made really, really bad decisions is like saying we should kill off all BP exploration/mining because of the Gulf Oil Spill.

    Why should they be allowed to help PAY the costs of for those past criminals? Football makes money, court judgements cost money. Where do you suppose the money to pay the massive PSU civil suits will come from? ALL outside funding for those crooks should be stopped.

    No, it is like saying that PSU should NOT be allowed to use future NCAA money to pay for its past crimes. Wait until AFTER all the sexual abuse victims have been repaid, via the upcomming massive civil suits, and THEN talk of resuming football (and other sports) to make money for that school.
