They've made zero real institutional changes and the culture of football first likely still remains, as evident by the university's own past actions in preventing an active pedophile from being brought to justice and by the fanbase at large that rallied in anger over Paterno getting fired in the wake of everything that became public. We didn't know then what we knew now, but ******* did we have a pretty damn strong inkling about what happened and Paterno's involvement.
People that were directly involved in the scandal in question no longer being there has never been a legitimate excuse for schools not getting punished in the past, because if it had then USC should've been safe after Bush and Carroll jumped ship. Direct your anger at the institution that allowed all of this to happen for a decade, both for the negative ramifications that your university is experiencing now and for the victims of Sandusky's crimes for all that they had to go through.
And I get it.... Penn State fans should be pissed if it came to this, much like how I'd get pissed if Illinois got hammered in such a huge way, but directing your anger at the NCAA instead of your own backyard is all kinds of foolhardy at this point in time.
