How many wins does Joe lose now since 98
Slap on the fucking wrist.
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
So basically, they get the same thing as USC. Except they also get a monetary fine.
PSU will be back, strong, and it won't take long.
I AM KIND, SMART, POWERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, TERRIFIC, AND TREMENDOUS
What did you guys expect? This is a lot.
See above. In this case it's a little more meaningful. Joe Paterno is no longer the winningest coach in history.
A 4 year bowl ban and scholarship loss is crippling.
Fine, bowl ban and serious loss of scholarships. What else would you do? This is a huge penalty.
This is big....
$60 million dollar fine
4 year bowl ban
10 scholarships per year
Any player can transfer immediately (which might be huge with a 4 year bowl ban)
A bunch of probation stuff....
What recruit will want to play there in the next 4 years? Not very many.
USC got 2 years. This is 4 years.
1. 4 Year Bowl Ban/Postseason
2. 60M fine
3. 5 Scolarships a year for 4 years (I think)
4. No penalty for transfers
5. All wins vacated from 1998 - 2011
6. 5 years probation
7. Continues investigation, reserve rights to further punish individuals as more information is availible.
8. Various B1G/NCAA monitors in Athletic Department including an NCAA employee "monitor" within the depart that will report directly to NCAA
That's about what I expected (harsher than many will think). They bombed them back to FCS type program for a few years which was appropriate.
I think the B1G will impose further Media restrictions.

Who in the heck is saying this is a slap on the wrist????

No death penalty because of "significant unintended harm"
Hide yo quarterbackz, hide yo kidz, the MSU defense is here
Should have been a full 85 scholarships over 4/5 years

I expected something that would scare teh living shit out of other schools to stop them from covering things up. If the penalties are not that grand, there is incentive to cheat and lie. Better to win now and face possible consequences later, than to never try to cheat and win. I think that is the SEC motto.
Now knowing what 1995 is like all over again! Thank you 247 technology!!
Are you serious? This is way worse.
Clearing off 13 years of wins off of Paterno's records.

It is 10 scholarships lost per year, I think.

Bo Ryan likes his basketball like he likes himself: ugly as fuck.
PSU won't be going to a bowl game until at least 2019. They're not coming off these sanctions and going to a bowl game the next season.
I was only able to get info via this thread and I posted before the rest was announced.
I'm reading the scholarship reduction as 10 this year, then 20 for the next three years.
Yeah they just got drilled. This isn't the SEC where scholarships are on a year to year basis. Competing at 75 for an extended period with a 4 year bowl ban will hurt bad.
They needed to drop the hammer harder on scholarship losses
