Yeah I just heard that as well. Most believe PSU is working with the NCAA on what the sanctions are which is why they won't appeal.
If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
An excerpt from Dan Wetzel's latest.
http://sports.yahoo.com/news/ncaaf--...-spanier-.htmlSources say the school will continue to field a team. However, it will deal with heavy scholarship losses over the next three-to-five years as well as a multiyear ban in postseason competition and multimillion dollar financial penalties.
The standard line rippling through college sports Sunday is that while Penn State will be spared the death penalty, the penalties will make them wish they weren't.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
If the rumors on the punishment are correct, the Big Ten will have no choice: they will have to either suspend Penn State football from Big Ten play or kick the school out of the league entirely. It would be dangerous to send a team full of walk-ons to play football against Michigan, Ohio State, Nebraska and the like.
They can stay in the league, but there's no way they can play a Big Ten conference schedule without scholarship players. They'd lose by 100 points (if teams felt like beating them that bad), and their players would be dangerously physically overmatched.
There are rumors of a 4-5 year complete ban on giving scholarships. If the actual penalties are less severe, it could be that Penn State could field a team incapable of winning in the Big Ten but that wouldn't put its players in danger against the schedule. Like a bad Sun Belt team.
I wonder what the big 10+2 rules are regarding throwing someone out.
Maybe this has been said already but I was wondering what happens to the guys on scholarship now? Do they still have to sit out a year if they transfer? Even though the school deserves all the penalties they get the players don't deserve it.
