    Gutsy decision. I imagine there will be some students who will try to physically block this from happening.

    Not sure where you heard that, but the decision hasn't been made yet:

    Cbsnews is reporting that tomorrow morning at 9 AM, the NCAA will announce "unprecedented" penalties on PSU. Death penalty perhaps? It's going to be an interesting day.

    Also, Paterno statue was removed this morning.

    I always found it amusing when people would say that the "NCAA has no jurisdiction in this matter." The NCAA has jurisdiction in whatever they damn well please when it comes to colleges and any involvement by athletics on any scale.

    This article does not sound like the death penalty but it will be harsh sanctions.

    This article is vague but it too suggests the death penalty will not be applied:

    Statue down, name remains on the Library.

    Because that makes sense....

    Yes I too went to "Other Sites" and found most posters were brutal in their attacks on the whole PSU institution....while those defending Paterno, or mainly the University were calling out that this was a "Liberal Agenda" When did not supporting anyone covering up for a child molester become a liberal agenda?

    Reminds me of the people who would call people out in the late 50's early 60's ...who were calling for Civil Rights as "Commie sympathizers"

    I wonder if unprecedented punishments could include no home games for a season or three?
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    THAT would be awesome. Not quite the death penalty but it still makes a pretty strong point.

    I doubt it, most likely a postseason ban, no TV, and loss of a number of scholarships.

    Taking away home games hurts Penn State but it also hurts the surrounding community. Why the need to punish those not directly involved in the program.

    Personally I would like to see PSU donate 50-100% of the profits from home games to charity for the next few seasons. That would be a good start in beginning the healing process.

    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    I guess the question now becomes does PSU appeal the penalty, or fight it in the courts. Or decide to take it's medicine and move on. Personally I think they should move forward, as the court of public opinion would murder them if they decided to fight this.
