The only argument I can see about NCAA sanctions is that it might not be considered under the NCAA's purview since it did not involve players, recruiting, the team, etc. But it did involve how the program handled criminal activity that occurred, and I think programs have been penalized for that in the past.

If I had the skills to be offered a football scholorship at any school besides Penn State, I would grab it.

Who wants to spend their entire 4 year college career hearing about the scandal constantly.

It will not go away ( the mentioning of it everytime Penn State football is played or discussed)

Shame on Penn State for honoring somebody based on who he appeared to be, but later turned out not to be? Everybody was fooled about who Joe Paterno was, not just Penn State fans. You don't think a great many Penn State fans have changed their minds about him? (Mod edit-one sentence deleted)

How do you know that the fans have no sympathy for the victims? Oh yeah, you really don't. <Mod Cut>

And honestly, even if Penn State was the only school offering a FBS scholarship, I would think players would be better off in FCS or Div II.

Nike is pulling joe pa's name off of their child development center at their corporate HQ's. You couldn't make this stuff up. If this whole ordeal was a screenplay it would be thrown out for being too sensational and unbelievable.

Wasn't it a Nike guy who was saying how wrong everyone was to blame Paterno when this first came out?

Yes, the CEO Phil Knight even gave the eulogy at JoePa's funeral, saying it was tragic that the coach "missed it".

Sorry, but he didn't "miss it", he was right on top of the scandal and directed the coverup.

If you refuse to see what hero-worship can enable after all that has occurred here I really have nothing more to say. You did read the FBI report right?

Funny how some of us posters are getting more invective from you than Joe Pa and others.

Go ahead, link your track record on the topic, seems like you just showed up to defend...I dont recall any condemnation from you....
