Programs paying the price for indiscretions of past players or coaches happens all the time.
And in this case, it needs to happen big time at Penn State. That program became so big and powerful that something like this could happen just to protect its image. Even with JoePa and the idiots who were running the University gone, the program still needs to be put down for a while just to get rid of that aura of being able to do whatever they want, whenever they want, to whoever they want.
The vendors still have jobs at OSU. If we're discussing a Bowl ban for PSU that's another discussion altogether.
