How would giving the death penalty to psu punish Sandusky? Or even Spanier, Paterno, Shultz, and Curly? I understand the making a point angle, and the general public is just angry so they want something to be done to quell their anger. But from a logical standpoint it simply makes no sense.
Also, anyone saying it's needs to be done to "send a message". You can't actually believe that??? ANY person participating in a cover up is always going to be more concerned about what is going to happen to themselves first and foremost over what happens to the company they work for. You think spanier, shultz and curly care what happens to psu football at this point? no they are worried about going to jail. so tell me again what this message sending is, please
EDIT - saw that the school is likely to be fined instead, point still stands to those who wanted death penalty though
That honestly would be dumb if they could only do something if the people who caused the infractions were the only ones that could get punished. That means that as long the university fired someone or released a student that caused the infraction that they could no longer be punished. That could allow colleges all over the country to do illegal activities without worry of getting punished by the NCAA as long as the infractor(s) are no longer at the university.
