    You are right, this is different.

    This is about an adult man sexually abusing and raping children under the protection of the Penn State Football Program.


    But I guess that is less serious to you than players being paid under the table?

    It's not worse, but I just don't see it as an NCAA issue. Everyone who was in the wrong has been punished.

    I'll admit that I haven't really been following this thing closely, but has the school president or the actual university been involved in this or was it just the the football department? If everyone in the athletic department has been punished(which they have) and the university wasn't involved then I don't see a reason why the university should be punished more.

    Lack of institutional control.

    The AD and the university president were involved in a large portion of the coverup.

    What's more serious... a university having knowledge that boosters pay their athletes OR a university covering up child sexual abuse?

    Again, it's not a matter of which is more serious because it's obvious which one is, but I don't see it as an NCAA issue. This is a legal issue.

    If a program covered up an athlete killing strippers I'd say the same thing.


    No program will ever receive the death penalty again.

    I don't think they seriously receive the death penalty, but I truly believe that anyone in upper management and the entire athletic department (football) be sent packing.

    I hate to say it, but with how Penn St treated the entire issue, it is hard to believe that this is not going on in other universities. A message needs to be sent, and I would say that is as fair as anything.

    Also, I think his wife needs to be charged as well. Basically a sentry.

    Ok... if your viewpoint is that no program regardless of transgressions should ever receive the death penalty then I understand. That is the only thing that makes sense.

    Otherwise, yeah.. if it came out that FSU players murdered strippers and the Football program covered it up... I would of course be in favor of the death penalty. Because of the COVER UP. That's as bad/worse than the real life example of Penn State.

    And Penn State officials definitely covered it up, big time, the higher ups... this is as bad as it gets.

    It seems like everyone in that area just wants to forget it ever happened.
