PSU & NCAA Question

With all the speculation about what the NCAA will do to PSU.....I have to ask this question.

The majority of the issues with the Sandusky case are related to legal and moral issues.....but not directly related to football issues.
So how much authority does the NCAA really have in this matter?

Don't take my question wrong......I am not defending anyone......just questioning how this truely pertains to NCAA rules. ..........I fully realize the moral and legal stuff, just questioning at what point the NCAA may overstep their bounds.....????????

Re: PSU & NCAA Question

According to this link, the NCAA doesn't have much power (in this instance). But, they have given their President carte blanche to do what he feels is appropriate.

“did you get all that on camera sport?”

Re: PSU & NCAA Question

Thanks for the link. It really addresses what I was questioning. With all the people saying they should give the death sentance to PSU football......I have to wonder how the NCAA could justify that, with the "powers" they have over this case?

Re: PSU & NCAA Question

The legality of the NCAA's ability to give the death penalty in this case would be subject to scrutiny, that's for sure. It would probably play out in court, and neither side wants that.

I'm am confident that there are "back door" conversations taking place between NCAA officials and PSU official, or at least between their lawyers to maintain "plausible deniability"

Re: PSU & NCAA Question

The NCAA is on a slippery slope and IMHP newly appointed President Emmert is on a frustrated power trip so anything can happen. Is it legal, under the NCAA charter? Probably not, but why fight the inevitable. We will just take our punishment and come back from it stronger. The court of public opinion and the other haters have spoken.

And yes I have read the entire 260+ pages of the Freeh report. I feel that there should and will be criminal and civil trials, so that all of the information should come out.

I am not sure the NCAA is in their bounds or not, but I wonder if the school will accept the punishment or if they will file an appeal/lawsuit. My guess is they will just accept and move on. They won't look good if they fight it. Thee way I see it, they would lose either way. It will be interesting to see what happens.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Re: PSU & NCAA Question

There will be no Death Penalty for ps, the death penalty is just sland for the rule that was enacted in the early eighties as the "Repeat Offenders Rule" which was put in because of SMU and there continued violations after being sanctioned by the NCAA. Lose of scholarships for a couple years along with no bowl appearance would be my quess.

Re: PSU & NCAA Question

I don't get how any past inFractions USC, OSU or SMU involved child rape & cover ups...again & again over 7-10 kids how isn't that repeating an offense? Cause he didnt get caught? Arguement wise he did get caught....
So why shouldn't 14 years of cover ups be a repeating offense? Wasn't Sandusky a coach sanctioned by the NCAA ? On a team sanctioned by the NCAA?
Cant the board of NCAA vote to increase the depth of authority & reach judgement wise ofi the teams schools they sanction?
If they "blank" out then bring on the Feds & Department of Education...
Shake my head....
