According to this report by Reuters, the NCAA has hit Penn State, their football program, and what is left of the “Paterno Legacy” with penalties which will leave it reeling for years to come.
The school has been hit with a $60 million fine.
The football program has been banned from post-season bowl games for the next four years.
The number of football scholarships they will have to offer during that time has been reduced from 25 to 15.
And all of PSU's football victories for the last 14 years have been voided, taking the title of “winningest football coach of all time” from Paterno himself.
Let's discuss what this means to PSU when we meet again on the other side of the penalty flag.
