That said, I can honestly say, the people who want PSU crushed are wrong. I would say this exact same thing about ANY college football program in a similar situation, where the football program was so significantly tied to other parties that should not be punished because of a few.



This. Screw the NCAA.
This "few bad apples" meme is old......sorry but the football institution engaged in a criminal coverup...they should be penalized in the extreme.

PSU as an institution of higher education unfortunately will experience some of the blowback but that is a consequence of their school allowing a particular collegiate sport to dominate their identity in a cult-like fashion. This is what happens when you don't "diversify"....hopefully the academic institution will learn an invaluable lesson from this tragedy...one would hope so considering the damage.
