I'm saying the NCAA has no jurisdiction here. The court system does, and the court system is acting. Sandusky will spend the rest of his godforsaken life in prison. Various Penn State officials who had the power to stop Sandusky years earlier but passed the buck higher and higher until it just sort of disappeared? They're facing criminal action as well. That list might well have included Joe Paterno himself, had he not died in January.
As for the school itself, it's about to be hammered with civil lawsuits. How high can you count? Multiply that number by six, stick a dollar figure in front of it, and now you're looking at the amount of money Penn State stands to lose in civil trials.
The death penalty for football? Man, that's nothing. Penn State is about to lose everything it has, and everything it ever will have. I'm telling you, as an institution, Penn State is about to fall and it might never get up. Not if the juries in these civil cases do the right thing and send a message to Penn State -- and to all of us, every last one of us -- that it is never OK to look the other way when a child is being hurt.
