You can still have a quality student-athlete experience and play in the NFL without going to a bowl game. Sure, they won't compete for a national title anytime soon and they might be a 3-4 win team for the next couple years. But I'm sure there are still a ton of kids growing up in Pennsylvania who dream about playing for the Nittany Lions.
I'm saying this as someone who thinks the NCAA penalties were fair. It sent a big message, gives a significant amount of money to sexual abuse victim programs and doesn't really punish current student-athletes.
I think it is going to take at least 10 plus yrs for the program to get past these sanctions. Plus going to PSU is now attached to scandal I think a lot of kids will think twice about going to a school that housed a known monster. I know I wouldn't want my kids playing their based on that fact alone. Only the diehard kids who have parents attached to the program will want to go there now.
If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
