FINE??? it ain't the death penalty but it's like beating them up and

Let's see if PSU nullifies Don Paterno's and Sweetlips Sandusky's
pensions!
You think their wives had no clue?
You really think those two women didn't know it was a powder keg....for
years?

What happens to that 60 mil?  I haven't seen the details.

I mean, is it held in trust for the victims or something?

They botched it.

Botched it completely.

You want to see how bad they botched it?

From THEIR OWN FAQ on the subject, on the main question:

Why not the death penalty?
Imposing the death penalty does not address the cultural, systemic and leadership failures at Penn State. Instead, our approach demands that they become an exemplary NCAA member by eradicating the mindset that led to this tragedy.

If imposed, the death penalty would impact far more student-athletes than those at the Penn State program. Indeed, hundreds of student-athletes who are not even Penn State students would be negatively impacted.

First off, the NCAA is asking the impossible.  There is a cult within the culture and system within Penn State which these penalties only wound, not kill -- and, in doing so, could very easily make it more dangerous over time.

Pennsylvania State University cannot become an exemplary NCAA member under any circumstance (in fact, expulsion from the NCAA should've been considered!).  There is still the question as to parts of the culture and system within Penn State which could be involved in a larger child-rape ring involving donors to the school, not to mention the disappearance of the District Attorney in 2001, declared dead around the time all this became public.

And, as to the last statement, they will be lucky, by the end of these four years, if PSU does not have four sports:  Men's and Women's Basketball, Football, and one token Women's sport to satisfy Title IX.  The rest of the athletic program will be bled bankrupt.

The money goes into "an endowment for programs preventing child ***
abuse and/or assisting the victims of child *** abuse," according
to the Public Report.

Penn State's share of the Big 10 BCS money that the Big 10 wants back
is going to similar charities.
