The NCAA has decided to reduce the historic penalties against Penn State, returning some of the 20 annual football scholarships that were forfeited under the sanctions handed down in July 2012 because of the university leadership's lack of action regarding the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse matter.

"Beginning next academic year [2014-15], five additional initial scholarships will be restored to the university's football team," Penn State said in a release Tuesday. "This amount will continue to increase until they reach the full allocation of 25 initial in 2015-16 and 85 total football scholarships in 2016-17." [/quote]

  • Bowl ban should be lifted as well. It's a legal matter not an NCAA matter. People should be going to jail, it has NOTHING to do with player or coaches eligibility issues.
     
    Figured it would take a lawsuit for this to happen. Any competent judge would toss the penalties back in the NCAA's face. They overstepped their bounds.
