What should happen to Penn State?
The Freeh Report was released today which details the investigation into Penn State’s actions (or rather inactions) regarding Jerry Sandusky’s molestation charges. The report finds that for fourteen years, many of the school’s highest officials blatantly ignored any accusations of wrongdoing against Sandusky and continued to allow him to lure young boys to the school.
Freeh writes, “Our most saddening and sobering finding is the total disregard for the safety and welfare of Sandusky’s child victims by the most senior leaders at Penn State…In order to avoid the consequences of bad publicity, the most powerful leaders at the university — Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and Curley — repeatedly concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky’s child abuse.”
Should Penn State face sanctions from the NCAA? Is it fair to allow the school’s athletics to be punished?

@wardamneagle “This shouldn’t tarnish his legacy because he did far more good than bad” WHAT THE **** WORLD DO YOU LIVE IN!! What good did he do besides run an awesome football program??? In what world does running an awesome football program constitute “more good” than sexually assaulting multiple young boys and ******* them up mentally for the rest of their lives.

Joepa isn’t completely innocent in all of this, that being said i didn’t support him being fired. This shouldnt tarnish his legacy because he did far more good than bad. The death penalty by rule is limited to schools on probation so it shouldnt be used but they could be put on probation which is fine with me. no postseason ban though.

Anyone that thinks it wasn’t known around the campus is stupid. The school covered it up and Joe Pa profited from the scandal. The entire thing needs to be blown up.

Why would they punish the athletics of the school? I was there today and ran with one of their 300 meter hurdle runners and he was one of the best I’ve seen. It’s not fair to penalize good athletes who have worked so hard to get there to play for some guys actions.
