Sometimes it takes a monstrous act to create a monster.
That is exactly what has happened at Penn State.
The NCAA has levied it’s punishment against the college for it’s role in the scandal surrounding Jerry Sandusky. $60 million in fines, a four-year postseason ban, loss of 20 scholarships per year (for four seasons), the allowing of immediate transfers of current players and the vacation of all wins since 1998.
The crime was heinous, but is the punishment just?
The Joe Paterno era at Penn State has come to an end.
After 46 years at the helm and just hours after announcing that he was retiring at the end of the season, Head Coach Joe Paterno has been fired by the Board of Trustees. This is all in the wake of the charges against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who allegedly molested eight young boys between 1994 and 2009.
Joe Paterno just released a brief statement: “Right now I am not the football coach, and that’s something that I will have to get used to.”
Another casualty is University President Graham Spanier, who resigned before he was terminated.
