Penn State Punishment

Putting all emotions aside, what do you think Penn State's penalty <span style="font-style: italic"><span style="font-weight: bold">will</span></span> be. Not what it <span style="font-style: italic"><span style="font-weight: bold">should</span></span> be.

Personally, I think that they will get 10 years probation, lose some scholarships and pledge to donate millions of dollars to child abuse research and prevention.

Re: Penn State Punishment

I think they will self impose forfeiture of a portion or all of proceeds for a time of regular season games, bowl earnings, etc. Probation and hefty contributions.

Look in their eyes ma you’ll see me.

Re: Penn State Punishment

Didn’t they already step up donations to several agencies dealing with child abuse?

Re: Penn State Punishment

Yes, I believe they donated something like $2.5 million towards building a child abuse center somewhere near State College.

Re: Penn State Punishment

Amongst other things....I think a one or two year ban from post season play will be in there.

I dont pay that close attention to collage football, but I believe USC just went through the post season ban.....didn't they ?? That certainly cost a program dearly....between recruits and bowl money.

Your never to old to learn something stupid

Re: Penn State Punishment

Some variation of what's been said above. Some duct tape type of stuff.

But nothing that will really change the basic system. Nothing that will prevent the tail from wagging the dog, just as before.

Please, no emotions. I was just curious as to what everyone thinks the penalties will be. I didn't want this to turn into another debate, which is why I quit reading and posting on the other PSU thread.

Re: Penn State Punishment

Criminally and action from the sports authority will be lite. They will get nailed in the civil courts. Not only with payments to victims, but I can see the judge(s) imposing additional punitive financial mandated funding for various programs.

Rest assured, those judicial "donations" will soon be promoted as PSU being a stellar institution playing up all they do for the less advantaged. PR 101 - peoples memories are short.

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.

Re: Penn State Punishment

I also see the estate of Paterno and the other named enablers being sued individually in civil courts. As leadership in a quasi public institution, but with the long history of PSU claiming independence from state control, they are liable as corporate officers.

The next suit will be by the AG or others on the use of taxpayer money to defend the suits or make the payments.
