NCAA: 'Corrective' Measures for Penn State

The NCAA says it will levy “corrective and punitive measures” against Penn State in the wake of the child sex-abuse scandal involving former football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. The NCAA announced Sunday that it will detail the sanctions on Monday. It disclosed no details. Read more from The Associated Press. Emmert as recently as last week would not rule out the possibility of shutting down the Penn State football program in the wake of the scandal, adding that he had “never seen anything as egregious.”

Sanctions without due process? How is this fair? I’ d like to ask DiNardo how many of the victims he interviewed to say taking down the statue gives the victims a voice? How does ignoring the monster that did these terrible things to those young men and making the story about paterno do any justice to those victims?

I just think this whole thing has gone to far. I just dont see how the new players/students/coaches should be punished for sommething they knnew nothing about. We honestly dont know the whole truth. The report is just one persons opinion its not full proof. Its a shame the rest of the Paterno family has to go thru this when they knew nothing. If you truly want the “victims” to heal then take it out of the media so they dont have to hear it all the time. Another thing if the victims were so hurt by what was done to them then why didnt they themselves go to the police?? I can see being scared of what might happen but this stuff happened years ago and it should have been brought before. Im sorry if i sound like a supporter of what happened but im not i just think innocent people are being hurt by all this. What if someone in your family did this and you faced hate everywhere you go that would hurt. What happened therre was wrong and if Joe paterno really did nothing then i think that is horrible but im not certian the whole truth is out there yet. The NCAA can hand down what ever punishment they want(which they shouldnt be involved anyways) but its not going to change anything. the damage is done. I think Penn State has suffered enough honestly from the student athletes and teachers. All the sudden going to Penn State makes you a child molester and to me thats worse than any punishment that the NCAA could hand down period!!!
