I think they could have struck a happy medium that would have been fair. For instance, the NCAA could have transitioned each scholarship to the 4-year variety. That would effectively limit the ability to 'run off' a kid. The same transfer rules could apply which would allow a person to leave if desired but they'd have a spot on the PSU squad if they wanted (for 4 years). Either way, the kid would have to earn his scholarship wherever he was at rather than getting a freebie.
That would be a lot more fair, imo, than letting a kid quit and keep his scholarship. The irony here too is the player(s) who quit and get the biggest benefit are this past year's freshman (3 year scholly with no football necessary). They'd have been the most likely of anyone to have had some idea of what they were walking into since they enrolled post-scandal.

The 65 limit will be in place for the following fall seasons: 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017. Because there is no 65 limit this fall, any kids who leave the team don't impact the scholarship limits at all.
Stanko, as a current freshman, is a worse case scenario in that he impacts 2014 (his jr year) and 2015 (his sr year). Incoming freshman this fall (including this past January's early enrollees aren't eligible to take advantage of the rule, so there can't be a case worse than Stanko's.
If between now and fall practice, a soph were to join him, he would impact just one year: 2014.
Whether they actually graduate in four years or not is really irrelevant. The ship is only good for four years not five.

I guess I will have to change my line to say 'our 64 will beat your 85' instead of 'our 65 will beat your 85'.
So the smart thing to do would be to recruit really dumb SEC caliber kids who would drop out of school once they're not on the football team because they weren't going to class anyway. Our problem is these kids who don't make it in football, but actually care about an education......
Yep. The NCAA is awesome isnt it?
WE ARE! And we will always be...
I sure hope the judge gives Emmert a beat down in a few weeks.
Im still waiting on an update from my boy. I will post as soon as I hear more from him...
