I would have liked to see them keep the bowl game for the kids, but not let PSU get any revenue. Put it into a fund for abused children or something like that. I think there were ways to punish the school, with doing the least amount of damage to the kids that go there.
The NCAA needed to send a message that there are things more important than football in this world, and Penn State had to be punished to send that message. If they let them keep their scholarships and football program intact, it would effectively be doing nothing more than saying that a decade of covering up sexual abuse isn't that big of a deal in the NCAA's mind.
And letting them keep playing and just donating gate revenue to charities also sends the wrong message, namely that throwing money at a problem after the fact instead of addressing it head on when it first arises is a-okay.
