Sandusky Abused Children, NCAA Abuses History

If the NCAA wants to show its importance, and has a great chance to offset the perception of its greed - it's about to sign the most lucrative FB TV contract ever, and is about to start a bidding war for the rights to host the playoff bowl games which start next year - then they have the perfect avenue through its handling of the PSU 'offenses'. Problem is, the NCAA has no real purview over a potentially criminal offense (PSU admin's supposed coverup) that may or may not have averted 'bad publicity'. They also have no authority to force the university to create a fund for child sex abuse or any other purpose. So that's at issue... if they don't have the power, do it anyway and challenge someone to oppose them. Kinda like Obama.

The one thing the NCAA could have done is to expell Penn State: who wants to be associated with Penn State?

Instead the NCAA came up with penalites that Penn State agreed to. As far as the NCAA, Penn State got off easy.

I would have considered kicking Penn State out of the NCAA and maybe take them back in in a few years.

B, then would Prager et al. say that was unfair or fair?

One of the NCAA's punishments of Penn State was the vacating of all its football team's wins from 1998 through 2011. It was in 1998 that Penn State coach Joe Paterno and university officials became aware of the accusation that assistant coach Jerry Sandusky had showered with a young boy.

As a result, Penn State's 112 wins are no longer wins, and Joe Paterno is no longer the coach with the most wins in college football history. Instead of 409 victories, his record shows 298.

Before explaining why this decision is morally wrong, I should note that...
