Said this morning that if the bowl ban is 3 years then So., Jr, and Sr can transfer and play immediately for another team.
If I'm reading their roster correctly they only have 1 player that's a true freshman

It's 4, they can transfer now?

The death penalty would have been unfair to players. The death penalty for SMU was for them lying to the NCAA about paying players.

This was a cover up of sexual abuse by the coaches/ staff. To simply give the death penalty would have, imo, been an easy out

One sicko shouldn't ruin it for a whole football program. The players didnt do anything. Sandusky will be in jail for the rest of his life and Joe Paterno is dead. The 2 guys that should be punished are gone, I dont get what good this is going to do. Its not going to do anything or punish whoever was involved in this, all those guys are gone. Punishing the school isn't going to make sure a sicko doesn't rape kids again, like I said, the people that should've been punished are gone. Anyone who was responsible for what happened is gone
Right now they're just going to punish people that weren't responsible for what happened.. I dont think its logical

Could not agree with you more. A thorough investigation is needed and only those who did nothing to sound the alarm should be punished.

OK then ... RT @Aaron_Nagler @AlbertBreer Programs taking in PSU players will reportedly be given an exemption from scholarship limits.

Cal need to get some!
