So a University should be allowed to violate rules, regulations, and code of conduct and then simply fire all involved, then let the judicial system take care of them, and simply wash their hands clean? Hell No, there has to be consequences.


What rules did the University break?


Per NCAA President Mark Emmert:
Our Constitution and By-Laws make it perfectly clear that the Association exists not simply to promote fair play on the field, but to insist that athletics programs provide positive moral models for our students, enhance the integrity of higher education, and promote the values of civility, honesty and responsibility. The sanctions we are imposinsimplisticallyg are based upon these most fundamental principles of the NCAA.


That's good enough for me. Too many people are thinking to simplistically about NCAA rules and bylaws by only focusing on rules that affect the game of play (i.e. illegal recruiting, points shaving, illegal benefits, etc); the NCAA and athletcs is much more than that.

Oh don't worry more will be going to jail; their trials have to start. Spanier, Curley, and Schultz will be spending some time behind bars. Paterno would probably be joining them if he was alive.

..You could say Paterno got off easy. He went to the grave with guilt, but other than that, nothing. Lost games, doesnt have the record, no statue, whatever. When he went there were still people protesting that He should keep his job. He was basically still on top.

Some people involved will also lose countless amounts of money fighting this through the Civil lawsuit arena.

Still really havent heard anyone shelter any of the blame yet either. Thats pretty sad.

Thats how the whole problem started in the first place, I honestly think they thought they were immune to the consequences and actions of one creepy sick Chuck.
