Sandusky is in jail for the rest of his life, Paterno is dead, Curley and the rest of the characters are being tried in court. IMO the people that need to be punished are being punished. You shouldn't punish the current football players who had absolutley nothing to do with this situation. You shouldn't give PSU the death penailty because it would effect all the other student athletes at PSU.
I think when everything began to come out last October/November PSU acted in the proper way. The people who needed to be fired were fired. They hired a new football coach from outside the university. Kick PSU out of the B1G? Did Baylor get kicked out of the Big 12? Death Penality for something that happened 10 years ago and the proper have been punished? Punish the people who need to be punished, not the ones who are innocent.
That's why you let the student athletes transfer without having to sit out. They won't be punished and they get to play somewhere else.
I think PSU needs to spend some time out of the big time sports school business and focus more on the institute of higher learning business. Really I think there are plenty of other schools that should do this too, but the administration's actions make a compelling argument for PSU being at the forefront in this trend.
