    Tell me why should players and coaches of the team in the present who had absolutely nothing to do with the crimes that Sandusky committed be punished?

    they should not. but paterno knew about the incidents and covered them up. he and sandusky bear the blame for this, no one else.

    the child molestor and the guy who covered for him: they are at fault.

    I agree with you so maybe you can tell me why the current team is being punished?

    the NCAA needs to look tough on this, probably. fairness doesnt matter as long as the image of 'doing something' is portrayed.

    No. The current players and fans had nothing to do with the Sandusky mess, so why should they be punished?

    Punish the guilty parties, that's what I say.

    The NCAA is a joke.

    They got off easy. years of letting this stuff go on. No one talked disgusting.

    Should've been worse, 13 scholarships allowed for 5 years, but with unlimited walk on guys to the FCS limit of 65.

    The NCAA tried to take the job of the courts away. I agree something needed to be done to Penn State, but not destroy the program. Im glad they are doing well this year, even though I am a fan of a different big ten team.
