Penn State Past, Future Decimated By NCAA Sanctions
Mark Emmert, NCAA president, announced the consequences of the Penn State child sex scandal today. The program now suffers a four- year bowl ban, a loss of 40 scholarships over the next four years, and a 60 million dollar fine against the university, which will be used to fund groups specializing in child sexual abuse prevention or assisting victims. The 14 years of victories were wiped out by NCAA sanctions, dating the Nittany Lion's last official win on November 22, 1997. All the penalties resulted from Joe Paterno's failure to report crimes convicted by child molester Jerry Sandusky, who was a coach under Paterno at Penn State. WCJB's sports analyst Hubert Mizell said the penalty was an extreme measure that did not fit the crime.
