The NCAA verdict is in: $60 million fine; no bowl games for four years; a loss of 40 scholarships (ten per year over the next four years); and the school must vacate all wins from 1998–2011.
I didn’t predict the fine or the wins, but I was spot-on with the scholarships and bowl ban.
Personally, I think it’s fair and the $60 million goes to help sexual-abuse victims. Penn State football will be damaged, but that’s the point, no? They’ll be back within eight years. Can the same be said for all of Sandusky’s victims?
