I truthfully didn't think the penalties were as bad as they could have been...I view "vacated wins" as a bullsh*t penalty because everyone that plays/follows the teams through the years knows who really won that game and how it was celebrated at that time - plus vacated wins has an asterisk next to it...the money is kinda big, but for an institution that size it will not be bad, the football program alone can make that for them...4 year bowl ban isn't that long either - this is a team that really isn't too great right now nor has a high interest of highly touted recruits, even before the scandal was brought to light
If you're a Penn Sate fan, I think you breathe a sigh of relief at these penalties...could have been way worse
not if you're a penn state recruit, like they said on mike and mike.. where the hell can u play right now, (for free) when the season is so close? If you stay you will never ever see a bowl game..
and going forward years from now not us but the younger generation won't know of the joe paterno that we all knew of.. i feel bad, only a little bit because he's dead n sh*t.. but what they did is inexcusable..
