Jerry Sandusky was convicted. Joe Paterno was convicted in the court of public opinion. His statue was taken down. The report by ex-FBI Director Louis Freeh has shined a light on the crimes and the cover-up at Penn State. And now PSU got there’s- tomorrow morning by the hands of the NCAA.
The NCAA has hit Penn State with a $60 million sanction, a four-year football postseason ban and a vacation of all wins dating to 1998, the organization said Monday morning.
The career record of Joe Paterno will reflect these vacated records, the NCAA said.
Penn State must also reduce 10 initial and 20 total scholarships each year for a four-year period.
NCAA President Mark Emmert will made the announcement Monday morning at 9 a.m. at the organization’s headquarters in Indianapolis.
Unprecedented is a very loaded word. But it didnt’ mean SMU and their death penalty in the 1980s. They were not hit with that type of sanctions.
