PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Sorry to even touch on politics, but given that this is an election year, I don't see anything happening with regard to the Cleary Act issues until at least next year.
Ironic. The man who made Penn State football what it is today may be the same man who destroyed it.
As ironic as ironic gets...

Do we really want this?? Now we would be prohibiting students from obtaining an education from one of the better academic institutions around. I'm not trying to minimize what happened, but I worry that this may be going too far.
No such thing as too big to fail, other universities will benefit and learn the consequences for actions like this.
THis is pretty much what I've been saying when people are calling for the head of Penn State when it comes to NCAA and football. The potential consequences they face from the Department of Education and lawsuits, and the Insurance Company winning their suit are far more serious than anything the NCAA could do to Penn State, and yes that even includes the death penalty.
My concern is that everyone is in line with "our penalty will be nothing compared to the next entities penalty, no need for us to do anything". And no one does a thing and it will all be forgotten. Nice recruiting class, football on Saturday afternoon, record contributions, all quickly brushed under the rug and forgotten again! I would rather see the death penalty on the football team than the clery act enacted. At least the U can survive that and education can continue.
I also agree with FortMeyer.
Agree with Fort Meyer. I think each investigation by these various entities should result in distinct and severe penalties. A message needs to be sent. I think it's absolute bullshit to conclude that relatively minor criminal charges (excluding Sandusky) against two or three administrators is good enough to move on. I don't want them in our conference anymore.
What's ultimate is the university: the football program represents the university. Self-deception and the failings of an "institutional culture" have made it plausible, Penn State's leadership could proclaim - or be forced to proclaim - "The football program be damned."
