I suspect that the sanctions will have to run their full course before PSU will again be competing on a level playing field (appropriate metaphor, I suppose); but last season's experience (and so far this year) shows that PSU can count on some extra depth from the families who have sent more than one generation to Happy Valley.

That's a lot of what it was about in the best of days.

Interesting little article done by Gene Wojciekowski in regards to Penn State Sanctions and giving an opinion that the NCAA should at the very least re-think it and consider reductions:

Breaking News!

NCAA to reduce penalties against Penn State regarding Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse matter - ESPN
Penn State to regain scholarships

The NCAA has decided Tuesday to reduce the historic penalties against Penn State, returning some of the 20 annual football scholarships that were forfeited under the sanctions handed down in July 2012 because of the university leadership's lack of action regarding the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse matter.
"Beginning next academic year (2014-15), five additional initial scholarships will be restored to the university's football team," Penn State said in a release Tuesday. "This amount will continue to increase until they reach the full allocation of 25 initial in 2015-16 and 85 total football scholarships in 2016-17."
The NCAA had reduced the number of 85 scholarships to 65 as part of the sanctions in the Sandusky matter. The scholarship reductions were for four years.
The decision by the NCAA is a reflection of its satisfaction with Penn State's reforms, including implementing most of the recommendations made by Louis J. Freeh in his report last July, the source said. The university has said that it has implemented 115 of Freeh's 119 recommendations.
At a meeting in July, coach Bill O'Brien held a closed door session with the board of trustees asking them to appeal to the NCAA to reduce the football sanctions.



IT ALSO SOUNDS LIKE TOO IF THINGS CONTINUE TO PROGRESS LIKE THEY ARE NOW, BOWL BAN WILL ALSO BE LIFTED.
