HS might have had a few bad years at the end...

but Joe Pa went down in flames…ouch…

and Penn State just got rocked…40 schollys, 60 mill in penalties, all wins since '98….

That program just got ruined. I wonder when they are going to address UM.

60M in penalties, that will go to "creating child sex abuse awareness programs around the country"…

They might have avoided the "death penalty" but this is a visit to intensive care at least.

And going from 25 to 15 new scholly signings ayear for 4 years will kill their depth, not to mention the 4 year bowl ban hurting recruiting AND the loss of some of their current roster. Any programs with available scholly's today could prosper, those who don't have any more available won't.
Anybody else here wonder if any of our new Coaches old Big10 connections (or just Ohio for that matter) might make a few calls today?

Ya know Troy and FIU and UM will be!

The fact that players can transfer without having to sit a year will be what really hurts this team.

As would be our luck, ZERO players from Florida on the PSU roster and only one 2013 commit;

Neiko Robinson - Yahoo! Sports

Shows interest here but no offer in the past. But for PSU to offer he must be pretty good as he would be the only Fl. based player at PSU next year, they do not recruit Florida (at least not under JoPa, maybe now under O'Brien).

Only other PSU recruit from the south (this time from this years incoming class) is a 3 star dual threat QB from Cairo, GA;

Steven Bench - Yahoo! Sports

He is also listed under "interest" but no offer.

I like the huge fine.  Do something for the victims and abuse awareness moving forward.

What I don't like is that the sanctions can destroy a program and hurt 100s of 1000s of people (students, alumni, fans) who had nothing to do with this tragedy perpetuated by only a few.

That may not be a popular view, but I think that is another tragedy by penalizing so many who had nothing to do with this.
