I think the B1G Ten should still seriously consider banning them from conference play for a season. This is at least as bad as Baylor basketball's transgressions.
Reports are PSU will impose some sanctions of its own in addition to what the NCAA has imposed.
Someone needs to investigate John Gagliardi before it's too late.
Starting the vacating of wins in 2001 would have highlighted the fact: "see, 2001, that's where you REALLY screwed up"
To me, it would have been better (for the cause of preventing the next one of these at University XYZ going forward) if only the wins from 2001-2011 had been vacated.
I'd have been happier if the NCAA had also vacated all the cash PSU made from its football program since 98. That way, since they did the coverup to protect the cash cow and keep the money flowing, the punishment would more fit the crime.
I assume with the vacated wins, Bowden becomes the all time leader?
Seriously, I don't really see how Posnanski can go to print in August with his book. It needs a complete re-write now, not just a touch up.
We really don't need a baseball version of Armond White (the film critic who lambasted the Toy Story movies and kvelled over That's My Boy)...
the publication of “Paterno,” which has emerged as perhaps one of the most unfortunately timed books of 2012.
Perhaps? Per freaking haps?
Books take too long to produce to cash in on something like "Linsanity".
Well, the article does point out that apparently several "Linsanity" books were in the pipeline.
Isn't he leaving SI? Is that a case of bailing off a sinking ship or walking the gangplank?
Who, Posnanski? He left months ago.
Was it before or after scandal broke?
even if people believe he is guilty of the crimes for which he was convicted in June, it would be "ridiculous" to think Penn State administrators engaged in a cover-up.
"He said, 'To do what they're doing to Penn State is so unjust,'" Amendola said. "He loves the program and he loves the university."
"He said, 'To do what they're doing to Penn State is so unjust,'" Amendola said. "He loves the program and he loves the university. And he loves young boys."
You really think PSU has a few hundred million just laying around? As it is, having to pay a fine of $12M/yr for 5 years on top of dramatically reduced revenue from the football program for the foreseeable future is going to impose a lot of collateral damage on the university beyond just the athletics programs.
Finally, I want to go on record, since it may well be a first, that after reading this thread, I agree with Ray's assessment of the GJ summary and Pos.
All too true, but I guess I'd say that Posnanski's far from the only one. Basically everyone who hitched their career to Paterno's star, and that's a whole lot of people, is going to lose a lot. The lesson could not be clearer about buying into something too deeply.
Finally, I want to go on record, since it may well be a first, that after reading this thread, I agree with Ray's assessment of the GJ summary and Pos. He was flat-out lying. You can qualify the GJ summary in any way you like in your article, but to just ignore it and then misrepresent the state of "what we know Joe knew" is lying. No way around it.
i just LUUUVVV pos and feel bad for him. i'm hope HOPING he's keeping mouth SHUT because he has to wait until after that stupid book is out and gone. i'm hoping that after that, he'll make things right.
