    Yes, read this early in the morning.

    This is theatrical comedy, produced and directed by the NCAA.

    1. Miami's booster.
    2. Ohio State football under Jim Tressel?
    3. UNC football team under Butch Davis.
    4. USC football and Reggie Bush under Pete Carroll
    5. Oregon, right now
    6. Arkansas football coach and his Harley

    And the NCAA cites CalTech for lack of institutional control.

    How dare CalTech allow student-athletes to use the same system as regular students in trying out their classes? That takes a lot of nerve.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    You can't even make this stuff up. Reminds me of the CJ Bruton fiasco.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: NY Times article on NCAA and Penn State

    This will be another in a long line of NCAA failures to punish a school that is completely out of control, while beating up on some little low revenue school just so they can show that they are enforcing the rules. In the past few years we have seen USC, OU, ND, Auburn, etc getting a hand slap or nothing at all for things the NCAA would slap the death penalty on ISU for. It is all about money and anyone that doesn't see it needs to take off their school colored glasses and look at the real history. The SEC seems to flaunts cheating, knowing that the NCAA will do nothing to the golden child....

    It is really, really sad.

    Did'nt Iowa State get the "death penalty" in football for buying a recruit a McDonalds hamburger ? Those days were kind of hazy for me . TYIA for info..

    Re: NY Times article on NCAA and Penn State

    Off the top of my head, here's a solution to the whole Penn State situation:

    1. Death Penalty. How long? As long as it takes.

    2. All current players & recruits will be given one extra year of elgibility (in addition to keeping their redshirt year if they haven't used it yet) and also given waivers to play right away at another Division 1 school. If they want to stay at Penn State to finish their degrees, PSU will fund their college completely until they graduate.

    3. All schools taking PSU refugees into their programs will be allowed to have these former Nittany Lions as surplus scholarship or walk-on players on their roster. If you take in 4 of these one-time PSU transfer players, your scholarship limit goes up by 4, and you can dress 4 additional players on gameday.

    4. I was going to say "force PSU to fund the college scholarships for these former players", but I don't think we need to go that far....yet. If Penn State students, faculty/administrators & alumni continue to be whiny little beeyotches about their punishment, drop that on them at a later date and then ask "Are you done whining, or do we have to go to Step #5?"

    I'd be careful with this one. You're just giving name brand schools an added recruiting advantage.

    I don't care. The advantage for the "haves" over the "have nots" is a secondary effect of this punishment. The main focus is to grab Penn State by the nose and kick them in the cojones repeatedly. Besides, even if some other school grabs a prime player from PSU and uses that player as the last piece they needed to build a BCS championship team? That still makes the big-picture story "Penn State has no chance at the BCS title because Penn State has no football team right now".

    It's a one year exemption that can only be used by approximately 85 players. Spread those players out over 100+ D1 programs, and it will more than likely be a blip that doesn't even show up on the radar.

    You can punish Penn St without giving all the name brand schools the added advantage that they don't need.

    Re: NY Times article on NCAA and Penn State

    The problem with Penn State is that their fans want to debate whether Paterno deserves a statue, the family wants to have their own investigation, the administration is trying to walk a line between legal and public scrutiny while retaining the legacy of Joe Paterno, no legacy = less money. They need to take drastic and swift action and clean up their own house no mattery how much money it costs them in the short run, forget the notion that JoePa did great things for them - in fact he created the institutional control issue and allowed unspeakable crimes to continue and they all went along with it. Public outcry will not go away, they may as well strip any connection to Paterno, clean house on anyone that knew anything about this and ask for a hiatus to get the time to clean it up. But they won't do any of that - and that is why Penn State deserves the death penalty.

    Although they have an very thick rule book, I don't believe there is anything specifically against aiding and abetting a child molester. They would probably use the "lack of institutional control," which they can use as a catch all for anything else.
