Worse than death?? PSU

this is a discussion within the College Community Forum; Penn State sanctions were hastily reached by NCAA's Mark Emmert and are anybody's guess - Yahoo! Sports NCAA really drilled them. I don't really understand the vacated wins, but think the rest is warranted. edit- sorry, that story doesn't list ...

Penn State: Which is worse - NCAA Sanctions or take the suspension

If you were Penn State's athletic program would you rather the NCAA sanctions handed down this morning or a 1 to 2 year football death penalty of the football program instead.

The sanctions handed down by the NCAA were as follows:
  • Four year postseason ban
  • 10 initial scholarship losses and 20 per year for four years
  • $60 million fine
  • All wins from 1998-2011 vacated
  • Five year probationary period

I voted BIG TIME that the NCAA sanctions were worse than a brief death penalty because the sanctions impacts will be felt for years to come, the death penalty would have restarted the program in 2 years. Nuff said.

Not anymore according to the sanctions. I think the NCAA wants Joe Pa out the record books.

Yeah he was at 400 something before, Halo. That's exactly what they were trying to do there.

Both penalties methods would be harsh in their own way. Perhaps this method is better. I like that Penn State has to pay a fine $60 million now to help out other victims of child abuse. And the Sandusky victims will still have their day in court to sue Penn State for their negligence.
