    Everyone involved in the cover-up should have been blinded and dropped off at the Nevada Atomic Test Site. The innocents should have been left alone.

    The administration covered up the crimes because their football program brought them prestige and income. Damaging those things is the only way to demonstrate the seriousness of such cover-ups.

    In the public eye Penn State will come out better because of these sanctions.

    Either way the reputation is going to be tarnished for quite a while, yet by doing these sanctions it at least gives the public their "hanging" so to speak, and might actually allow the wound (for the organization) to heal quicker.

    Hope that makes sense. Tried explaining it the best I could.

    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!

    For the amount of years that this went on for, I highly doubt only 2 people were aware of the situation. The rest who knew what went on either don't work there anymore or are too afraid to step up for fear of punishment. We're not talking about incidents that happened in an isolated basement of a home. Other people knew and shame on them too for keeping it a secret.

    but why punish the students? even if every staff member at the university knew, doesnt make it the students fault. fire the employees. dont sanction the students.

    To some extent, students are also responsible for letting this behavior happen. I agree, punishing them is harsh and shouldn't happen. I'm glad they chose to make an example out of the university and raise awareness of this kind of issue. While it may seem outrageous and unfair, it's about time this behavior gets exposed and dealt with. People need to stop covering their ears and saying "blah blah blah I can't hear you" and deal with the reality that kids are at risk for sexual abuse, no matter what environment they are in.

    WHAT??????????????????????
    how the heck am i responsible for a coach at my college raping children? i had no contact with our football team whatsoever. and yet, by your logic, i am 'to some extent responsible for letting this behavior happen' if a similar series of events occured at my college? these crimes are horrible, but the students are not responsible.

    Not the present administration or team. They did nothing wrong and they are the ones being punished.

    indeed, punishing these students is nothing short of sick. this was a sick crime. but they didnt commit it. it's ridiculous to see people supporting punishing innocent people 'so they can be seen as doing something against child raping'. if you want to do something against child raping, then DO IT! don't punish uninvolved people for your failure to prevent these crimes.
