I guess I should warn you, if I turn out to be particularly clear, you've probably misunderstood what I've said.

WE ARE! And we will always be...
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
Here's what is kind of making any sanctions iffy. The people involved in the alleged cover-up are the AD, head of security, and president. As everyone else gave them the info they heard and "put the ball in their court". JS wasn't an employee by the football team when this happened. So if the NCAA is going to come down it has to be on the athletic department right? You could slap an ethical conduct on Joe, but the whole situation overall has no connection with the football program only the facilities which are controlled by the AD. If the NCAA were to hammer PSU, how could they justify singling out the football program in a loss of institutional control penalty? If they were to punish PSU wouldn't they have to punish the entire athletic department? I mean usually these circumstances involve a particular sport, but in this case it's just the football facilities,and the school's administration. If this happened in the BJC and MM saw it and told Joe and everything else ensued would it still be the football team being punished???
...and if you're not down with that, then I got 2 words for ya.."suck it!!"
Consider the source...
You find out life's this game of inches, so is football. Because in either game, life or football-the margin for error is so small.
He's 100% correct in my opinion. This will be an all or nothing case in relation to the NCAA. If they choose to classify Jerry Sandusky as an Special Administrator to the football program (which, by its definition, is completely possible), then the oversight of his on-campus conduct becomes subject to NCAA's Ethics Code, and the breach is tied directly to the football program. Breaches of NCAA's Ethics Code, if extreme, can be associated with LOIC. The NCAA would need to set precedent in that pursuit, and it is undetermined at this point whether they will choose to do so. IMO, no PSU fan should confidently expect nothing nor fear the worst. It could go in either direction, but the pressure on the NCAA (not to mention the ease of their case) will continue to increase as more Administrative wrongdoing emerges.
PENN STATE FOREVER
