Seriously, a football coach was able to use school facilities to **** children for decades. The head football coach, athletic director, president of the school and others knew. Turning Sandusky in was weighed against how it would affect the football program and school and the powers that be decided that it was more important to protect the image of the college and program and let the ***** continue for years. Just think about that, the people in power continued to allow children to be ***** on school grounds because they thought it might look bad if people found out. The people in charge of Penn State found more importance in their reputation and prestige than in protecting children from being *****.

That is a serious problem in the value system of the leaders of the university.
Nobody disagrees that PSU leadership acted improperly. They will be tried and judged in criminal court.

The NCAA is not a criminal court. The implications of these sanctions will reach innocent people. They had to do it as evidenced by PSU's willing acceptance of the punishment, but I don't have to like it.
