Nearly 24 hours after the sanctions were handed down by the NCAA against the Penn State football program, it’s time to weigh in.
The sanctions were steep, there is no doubting that. They also, however, were appropriate.
Let’s review them for those that might not have seen it or don’t recall from yesterday:
- 60 million dollar fine
- Banned for 4 years from postseason play
- Down to 15 scholarships per year for four years, down from 25
- Football players can transfer to other schools without penalty.
- All wins are vacated from 1998-2011
- 5 year probation
The NCAA is right, ladies and gentlemen, this had to be done. Turn the page and we can talk about why.
