    The whole handling of this mess by the NCAA was wrong. Sandusky got his. May he rot in hell. Penn State, however, never got a fair and unbiased investigation from the NCAA to prove they were at fault for anything. The NCAA violated all their rules and standards and now have to back peddle.

    This is what happens when people in powerful positions buckle to media pressure, vice doing their jobs correctly.

    Is this still stemming from the incident where the College president, athletic director, head football coach, etc allowed the repeated rape of children in the locker room and refused to do anything about it because Penn State puts football above the rape of children? If so it is very unfortunate that Penn State didn't receive much of a punishment for the most despicable act that a football program was a willing participant in. This wasn't about paying players this was allowing young boys to be sodomized on campus. Shame on the NCAA for not giving them the death penalty and furthering it by lifting the little sanctions given early, follow the money.

    That some sports writer in a time when the NCAA is a floundering ship the article may seem appropriate, for me it is not, any one who condones child abuse deserves whatever punishment is thrown their way. One could actually feel the hurt in some of the postings on this subject on this forum, it has achieved dead horse status, & most will no longer post. You might try that cultural achievement .

    As I said earlier in this thread.......

    "Some aspects of this matter must remain at the forefront, so at the risk of sounding redundant....

    There are two separate things going on here .

    One involves crimes. These are a criminal and or civil matter and as such, come under the purview of the appropriate governmental law enforcement agency and the courts.

    The other involves infractions which are covered by and are under the auspices of the NCAA.

    It seems that the NCAA can't grasp where the line in the sand dividing the two is located."
    ............It appears that you cannot either.

    It is sad that you put your college before the rape of children, it is sad the Penn State cared about the football program over the rape of children. It appears you grasp very little.

    Unlike you Marvin, I have a vested interest in Penn State and as such in seeing that only the proper persons, not the thousands of innocent bystanders that were, be punished, and then upon a trial and a conviction, that they be indvidually punished by the proper authorities.

    The NCAA's broad brush sanctions for matters which were for the most part outside their purview and belonged to the Commonwelth's courts, hurt me, my family, and thousands of others who had nothing whatsoever to do with these assaults .

    So Marvin, my response to your suggestion is, "Don't hold your breath"
