I agree with Gov Corbett and wish him luck in this suit:
I'm no legal expert, but I do have a pretty good handle on ethics. On ethical principal, this is repugnant. If the NCAA doesn't have any authority here, then I guess they don't have any authority over any athletic program in the country. Plus, I'm guessing that the NCAA did their homework before levying the penalties.
