Is there some way to make everybody lose? NCAA, governor, Sandusky, Paterno's ghost, and Penn State trustees and directors?

It's really hard to root for Corbett in this mess since it was his actions as AG that kept Sandusky a free man because he was able to get Corbett money for his election through the Second Mile charity.

Elegy: Shtetl G: According to the article, with the NCAA plan the 60 million was going to:

The Freeh report, the result of an inquiry conducted by former FBI Director Louis Freeh at the university's behest, became the basis for a consent decree between Penn State and the NCAA. Subsequent sanctions against the school included a $60 million fine to be paid over five years into an endowment for child-abuse programs.

With the new PA law:

The Pennsylvania legislation received final approval Wednesday in the House before being signed by the governor. Senate Bill 187, sponsored by Sen. Jake Corman (R., Centre), would place the fines in a trust administered by the state Treasury and appropriated to the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. From there the money would go to child-advocacy programs.

So the PA plan would have the money "filtered" through the government and eventually some of it going towards child advocacy, what ever that is.  The NCAA's plan has it going to help child abuse programs which may or may not be all in PA.  All things considered, I think the NCAA's plan has a better chance of actually helping little buggered kids.

Both the NCAA and Penn State

That's kind of my thing. The fine was imposed to punish PSU. If the state keeps the money, they'll just shuffle it back into the general budget as "advocacy programs" and slip PSU a different 60 million to make up for it, essentially negating those penalties.

In the other hand, I can see why the state legislature wouldn't want the NCAA to be able to suck $60 million out of the tax revenues of the people of Pennsylvania. That one isn't going to be popular anywhere.


As a PA taxpayer, I want the NCAA to go fark themselves.  As a college sports fan, I want the NCAA to go fark themselves.  As a human, being I want the NCAA to go fark themselves.

I see a pattern developing here.

I can't believe the Penn State supporters aren't shutting the fark up about all of this.  They shouldn't have a football team at all.

I think the NCAA should just kick Penn State out - no longer making them an association member thus making it impossible to schedule games against other NCAA teams - the University can stay in the B1G (a la UChicago) but the sports teams get cut out too.

I am no fan of the NCAA (and think this money should go to charities to protect children) - but I am just done with Penn State.

I wish we could just put everyone involved in this on a rocket and fire them into the sun.
