    Re: ESPN OTL article on PSU penalty negotiations

    From one of the comments below the article:

    zanz_mcfate
    "The circumstances have a handful of trustees discussing how to overturn the decree in court. "This was such overkill," one trustee says. "It's like walking around with a dagger in you. Emmert and the NCAA are basically ruining this university. They are destroying the school." "

    Exhibit A for why foregoing the death penalty was a mistake. They still haven't figured out that "the school" is not the same as "the football program."
    +1.

    They hired and retained people who made horrible decisions, and the longer they gripe about the sanctions (which pale in significance to the damage done on their campus), the less respect they will have from me.

    Re: ESPN OTL article on PSU penalty negotiations

    I write this with the illusion that they are reading my comments or care about my opinion:
    Penn State, thank your lucky stars that they didn't shut your program down forever. Now shut up with the complaints, the whining, and the talk of lawsuits or appeals. Thank you.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: ESPN OTL article on PSU penalty negotiations

    Look, I would have liked to see Penn St sit out a year or two as well, but you honestly think they wouldn't have appealed a death penalty? They probably would have appealed one year sanctions.

    Re: ESPN OTL article on PSU penalty negotiations

    The more I hear about the fans, former players, and the BOT gripe about the sanctions the less I feel sorry for them and realize perhaps it truly is the "communities" fault that this happened. So many people and organizations within that community turned a blind eye to what Sandusky was doing because of PSU football perhaps there really are no "innocents" and the community is getting what they deserve.
