If Penn State had any decency, Sandusky would have been in prison 14 years ago.

Babwa Wawa: bacongood: "No, people are not buying #8 because that is the star player, it is just the team name they want. Really, we are not making money off this kid."

Jersey sales are the primary reason for putting the players' names on them. I'm guessing the ADs have wanted named jerseys for years, but Paterno nixed the idea.


you can't sell ncaa jerseys with names on the back. all of the replica jerseys are nameless. give or take the customized jerseys.

LesserEvil: We already have heard from several people that JoePa demanded, and got, special treatment for Football Players who ran afoul of the law or had academic issues, which are, in themselves, major violations. If more evidence turns up to corroborate the allegations already made, PSU's football program is toast.


Yup, one of the Deans in charge of punishing students quit due to the fact she fought with Paterno all the time. PSU did not want the NCAA showing up with a shovel and combing through all their files.

Eccentric Fixation: TheManofPA: I can't believe those 3 trustees put in that appeal and vow a lawsuit followed by the player's appeal. I mean, it is like they want the NCAA to reconsider and give the 4-year death penalty by showing the culture won't change with these current things. What do they think will happen? The NCAA will go sure, let's wait....okay your former administrators were just found guilty and sentenced to jail so I guess we'll lower the penalty by 2 years and give JoePa all his wins back?

Seriously, what do they hope to gain by prolonging this other than potentially making a lot of trouble. The NCAA probably doesn't want all of the bad things out there which is why they struck the lighter deal, now you ask them to bring more at you?

The NCAA and the PSU president wanted it over with asap. That's why they did the deal they did without following standard procedure. These idiot trustees wanting the NCAA to come in and do a FULL investigation is just stupid.
Do they really think PSU is so squeaky clean that a pissed off NCAA won't find hundreds of minor infractions, maybe some major ones, along with more info on the coverup?
They need to get over themselves and just take the punishment.


THIS. I suspect the NCAA investigators will be shocked by the violations JeoPa oversaw during his tenure. Anybody willing to overlook (and even abet) child rape would think nothing of committing major violations, as long as they could get away with it.

We already have heard from several people that JoePa demanded, and got, special treatment for Football Players who ran afoul of the law or had academic issues, which are, in themselves, major violations. If more evidence turns up to corroborate the allegations already made, PSU's football program is toast.

How wonderful.... putting the names of players on jerseys, just in time for players who probably do NOT want their names so prominently associated with Penn State.

velvet_fog: these trustees and former players just need to STFU and move forward.


SO MUCH THAT. They just need to get over it. It's done, it's over with, and all of this whining is not helping their cause. I don't agree with the NCAA's actions on this mess, but take the medicine and move on. Fighting is only going to make it hurt more.

Great headline about a pointless PSU uniform change gets redlit last night, and this retarded crap gets greenlit. Criminal.

"Penn State jerseys to have a blue ribbon to honor victims of child abuse, because if anyone deserves a blue ribbon for child abuse, it's Penn State"

FriarReb98: Ignoring the bargain basement joke, I've never understood why teams cared so much about "traditional image" that names were such a big intrusion on an already-identifiable athlete.


It helps the argument that jersey sales are just people buying team jerseys, not player jerseys.

"No, people are not buying #8 because that is the star player, it is just the team name they want. Really, we are not making money off this kid."

/surprised PSU did not lose more players, though I guess they can still lose them next year.

It's not about the image. It's done for the same reason they shave your head at boot camp. When you are a football player, you are not an individual, you are not special. Or something like that.
