FILE - In this Oct. 22, 2011 file photo, Penn State coach Joe Paterno walks off the field after warmups before an NCAA college football game against Northwestern in Evanston, Ill. NCAA president Mark Emmert says he isn't ruling out the possibility of shutting down the Penn State football program in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. In a PBS interview Monday night, July 16, 2012, he said he doesn't want to "take anything off the table" if the NCAA determines penalties against Penn State are warranted.
