The NCAA sanctions is just about the only way to ‘force’ the school(s) to change. It appeared that the school knew about what was happening and did nothing. Being criminal a few people MAY serve time but the school will still have the same attitude, money rules. When the schools and the people involved suffer monetary loss they then will pay attention.

The NCAA sanctions should be held up.

I am a PA resident with a son attending a Penn State school. Shame on Gov. Corbett. Who is paying for this lawsuit? The sanctions are not unlawful as far as I am concerned. What is unlawful is that Sandusky’s unlawful behavior was covered up by his peers in an institution of academics and trust. Why should the taxpayers of PA have to foot the bill for a frivilous lawsuit? Why are we paying to protect Penn State from costly sanctions they so richly deserve?
