WE ARE! And we will always be...
cbs sports article... Look at the comments from the Ohio U sports admin prof... Pretty telling... The NCAA never follows its own rules hmmm. Yep. More ammo for Corbett's crew. Antitrust. Yep.
'I am angered and saddened by this situation. Trust and credibility are essential to our regulatory tasks,' said NCAA president Mark Emmert. Not long after issuing that statement on Wednesday, word spread that the NCAA actually had Shapiro's attorney on its payroll and that the attorney had aided the NCAA in its investigation. 'This is obviously a shocking affair,' said Emmert. Really? Is it?
Seems like a culture problem at the NCAA if you ask me. Seriously, this is a BIG DEAL! And, this is potentially only scratching the surface of all of the things that could have gone on behind closed doors at the NCAA. Now that PA has sued the NCAA, it is quite possible that more could be exposed should the lawsuit go to trial. Does the NCAA really want all that?
Nope. Which is why if we are found to have standing, its going to be very very VERY good for us.
My concern is say the sanctions are reduced or lifted....can the NCAA then go back and do an actual investigation and possibly sanction us again?!?
The only way sanctions are reduced or lifted is through court order or a settlement with the NCAA. Either way makes it very unlikely the NCAA would go back and try to revisit the investigation or sanctions, especially as PSU would have already served under a period of sanctions at that point.
Exactly. No chance.
And what can they do that hasn't been done already?
F the NCAA. Emmert and his donkeys can suck it.
F the NCAA
F the BOT
It's been stated here numerous times and I agree this makes the NCAA look very bad. I'm sure Emmett isn't doing this out of the kindness of his heart. I'm sure someone found out and threatened to sue or else the NCAA would t be doing this. I'm still convinced that they found major violations but how can they sanction Miami now and anyone view it as legitimate? I also agree that they used information that they weren't allowed to use and it strengthens the case that things like this and PSU's situation are beyond the control of the NCAA.
Dominate The State
Let em. No one at PSU has to cooperate, they don't have subpoena power. If the NCAA investigates once (if) the sanctions are dropped/reduced, I can guarantee no one at PSU will lift a finger to help them.
Even if they were to open an investigation on you, they cant use any info from the hearings of Sandusky, Curley, Schultz or Spanier. They would have to ask their own questions...and no one not involved has to answer anything.
Envy the past, Fear the future
NCAA sanctions coming against the NCAA for "lack of institutional control."
Emmert should have done more.
He had to know
maybe we can force them to sign a consent decree that says they accept that they were wrong in punishing us and cannot do any further investigation, if they dont sign we will sue their pants off.
Someone needs to call Emmert up and fire his ass over the phone.
Or, have someone come over to his house and hand him a letter with a phone number on it.

I'm just curious why all the leadership isn't at least suspended until a full investigation is done. Oh wait....they don't have to play by any set of rules. The NCAA makes them up as they go along.
"One man didn't build this program and one man sure as hell cannot tear it down."
The only reason that the NCAA is having an investigator look at this is so that they can sanction Miami and not get sued. However, in the end, I think that they will accept Miami's 2 year bowl ban and agree to a minor scholarship reduction (5 scholarship per year for 3 years (20 per year allowed), total limit at 80).
In two years the NCAA will cease to exist. By then the Big Four conferences will have formed and will implement their own governing body(ies). The dollars at stake are overwhelming.
Also, if you hire a competent law firm you can get any crime/sentence reduced or thrown out anywhere in this country. The major major crime committed has been the BOT's willingness to accept sanctions and blame for what happened and allow the entire university and its alumni to bear the scars and stench from it. Their response to it all makes no sense other than to shift blame and focus away from them or theirs.
They need to fire Emmert. It's that simple. Fire Emmert and hold multiple conferences with members to see how they would like the NCAA to function in the future. Scholarship restrictions don't solve anything, bowl bans don't solve anything, all they do is hurt the innocent. Focus more on fines and personal sanctions (player disqualification, coaching restrictions, ect.). This whole organization looks like a complete cluster F right now.
They won't fire Emmert for this simple reason.
As bad as it is this thing has picked up very little steam in the media. Sorry but that is fact, heck it isn't even on the top stories anymore on espn.com.
What a joke. It is still obvious the media was the ones piling on and others followed suit.
Emmert is one defiant piece of work. You know what they say, pride comes before the fall.
