I think everything done here is ok EXCEPT the removing of 40 scholarships.
Paterno's legacy deserves to be trashed. I also think the fine is legit, as is the postseason ban.
But I think removing the 60 scholarships is brutal. Since players can transfer without penalty, I think Penn St. will essentially be using their limited scholarships to replace people who will probably transfer.
Emmert said that the "death penalty" would bring significant damage to people who had nothing to do with the case. Seems like what he did still has that effect.
I also think there's some hypocrisy in Emmert's statement about, essentially, not glorifying football in universities. Please.
