    NCAA to hand down "unprecendented" punishment to Penn State

    So apparently even if it isn't the "death penalty" they are gonna get hit hard as hell.

    "I've never seen anything like it," the source told correspondent Armen Keteyian.

    Mark Emmert was granted authority to punish PSU in unprecedented manner by NCAA Board and Committee

    Penn State sanctions expected to be extremely harsh and could even be perceived as more damaging long-term than "death penalty"
    per ESPN Joe Schad

    Expect it to be a rather long bowl ban and considerable loss of scholarships. Also it mentioned that the football program AND the school itself are both facing sanctions from the NCAA.

    And now Nebraska will be stuck with the most impotent school in the conference as a cross-divisional rival. I wanted it to be Wisconsin, I have family there!

    I would hope so, makes no sense to penalize players by forcing them stay on board a sinking ship.

    This has been the case in many of the situations like this with bowl bans and penalties I don't see why this would be any different. Especially when it is actually further punishment since it gives the players more motive to leave the program. While making them stay would actually benefit Penn State.

    I'm most interested in if Delaney has the balls to kick Penn St out. I'm not saying I want it to happen, but it has been tossed around as an opportunity. It would force the Big 10 to find a 12th member and quickly. I doubt the league and the university presidents want to lose the revenue of the Championship game and the market that Penn St brings.

    Hey everybody, just to let you know, there's going to be live coverage of the possible sanctions on Sports Center at 8 AM, followed by the announcement of the sanctions at 9 AM!


    Seriously, this is pathetic. How much longer is ESPN going to try to milk this for every penny they possibly can without anybody criticizing them? Hours upon hours of people repeating the same outrage, advertising live coverage of discussion of the sanctions before they're even announced, this is ridiculous. They'll just keep doing this, and not a single person in the media will say a word about how much ESPN is profiting off of this while most of their "coverage" is just repeatedly rehashing the same ideas.

    It's what they do, and people eat it up.

    I think taking away scholarships is the best route. They aren't going to be playing for a NC in the near future so the Bowl Ban sucks but I don't think it hurts them as much. Take away scholarships for a few years and the program will disintegrate. But fans can still show up and pack the stadium if they want to.

    So they lost 80 scholarships over 4 years, vacated all wins from 1998-2011 (100+ wins, which means Gagliardi is the all-time wins leader, Robinson leads D-1, and Bowden leads D-1A), fined $60M, a 4-year bowl ban, and all players can transfer immediately. All that's left now is the decisions on TV money and the B1G. The bad part is those administrators and other adults who knew can still collect their pensions and paychecks, and most probably won't end up in jail.
