As I said -- USC is competitive with 75 kids on scholarship. I find it hard to believe 10 scholarship kids (most of whom will never see the field in any given year) will cause Penn State to be non-competitive.
I also find it incredibly difficult to believe that top-tier recruits care about missing a trip to a bowl game. They care about playing in big-time conferences and playing on TV first and foremost. Penn State will still offer them that.
What did those 65 players on scholarship have to deal with the whole scandal? I guess everyone who says "We Are Penn State" is complicit in the scandal and cover up.
The NCAA is hammering the people who had zero, absolutley nothing to do with the scandal and coverup.
