Default Re: Penn State's Punishment: Too much, too little, or just right?

The media pressed for Paterno to be fired; it happened. They pressed for the statue to be taken down; it happened. They got thirteen years of wins taken away. Fine, that punishes Paterno from a very biased Freeh report.

Why punish the current program with no affiliates to the scandal by means of scholarships?
Didn't Penn State pay Freeh to put that report together? They wanted to get to the bottom of this and they basically did. You may not like what has been revealed but that doesn't mean Freeh had some kind of bias going in.
