    Big Ten

    Does the Big Ten have a moral obligation to revoke the membership of Penn State?

    Should the Big Ten tv contracts and bowl agreements be subject to the impending civil lawsuits against Penn State?

    This would never happen. Is the Big Ten embarrassed as hell for what is going on at one of their member institutions? Sure. But that is about it.

    The Big T(welve)en has no moral obligation to revoke membership. The university shouldn't be forced to suffer based on the actions of a few. This is not a death penalty situation (although it should be for Sandusky)

    This is not about kids, it's not about Penn State or JoePa. Similar to realignment it's only about money. Sad but true. Penn State will remain in the 10. The sad thing is the PSU NEB game will be the highest rated game in many years maybe ever

    The Big10 will not kick Penn St. out of the Big 10, and it would be stupid to do such. Penn St (the college itself not the football program) is a great college.

    Did the Big 12 kick out Baylor?

    Yes but what we have all learned tragically here is that football is money and money is king and nothing can stop the machine from making money. If Penn State's football program gets taken away (not saying it will happen) then they have lost it's viability to the BIG.

    You may want to change the question. Is the Big Ten concerned about the conference image to the point that they sanction Penn State football for a few years. Having Penn State on Big ten network or any network may be enough negative image for a while that advertisers may not want to be played during games. Then Penn State starts costing them money.

    Note: I do not watch much Big Ten football due to a lack of interest but now if I see Penn State on I may make a point of interest to turn the channel.

    When those "few" are the entire leadership of the AD and the university, it gets a little hazy. To be totally honest I think that Penn State should take a year off of football while they get their house in order, but I don't expect that to actually happen. What I do expect to happen is that the entirety of the leadership of both the university and AD will be gone and so will every member of the football staff from top to bottom. Realistically I don't see how they could do any less.

    Granted, a specific prohibition against child rape and potentially “pimping” children is likely not covered in the voluminous NCAA bylaws. The question becomes whether the crime is so overwhelming, the lie so big, the member institution corruption so great, the NCAA punts and a stunned public does not pay attention.
    Does the NCAA seriously need to put in it's bylaws that child rape is against the rules for it to be an enforceable offense?

    Interesting read. One comment below the article stuck out to me. I'd think it was funny if I didn't, on some level, believe that it could be considered by some to be a legitimate solution (or part of one). Hopefully I'm just being too cynical.

    Penn State may possibly need a 6 page manual to reinforce that itís potentially wrong for 57 year old men to anally rape 10 year olds in the shower. I recommend a steering committee to explore options.
