I tend to agree. This is a big blow to the ability for the program to be competitive.
Is their program still a money-making juggernaut? Yes. But they are going to take a big hit.
Just the hit they will take on recruiting will severely handicap their ability to be a top tier program for a long time. In the SEC, this type of penalty would be death by a thousand swords.
Is it enough in light of the reasons for the sanctions? I can see where reasonable people might argue otherwise. But there does seem to be alot of Penn State fans that are still in denial.
