NCAA press conference to announce punitive and corrective measures for Penn State.
Reports are saying the punishment will be unprecedented.
It is probably a outside the box creative solution that all parties agreed on if its done this fast.
I doubt it well be any scholarships, loss of games or bowls. It will be revenue based
Just my opinion
Doesn't look good...
Athletic association will announce sanctions against both football team and university, following independent report on sex abuse scandal

2 years of no football then able to apply for reinstatement
Am I the only one legitimately surprised about how quickly the NCAA has acted after the release of the Freeh report? I honestly didn't think they'd actually put forth a punishment until at least mid-season.
I would think the school was very involved with the penalties...
Pleasantly surprised. At least when it is a serious matter and not something that deals with money they can take it seriously.

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
Seriously, I have to imagine that the NCAA and its lawyers sat down during the entire time Freeh was investigating and came up with a bunch of responses to different scenarios, and that they just slightly tweaked their "worst possible scenario" response to meet the Freeh investigation report.
Sounds like they are going to get Sandusky'd by the NCAA.
Do not park your car in State College PA tomorrow - will be on its top by Noon....
No way this happens so quickly without Penn State agreeing to everything that is coming down.
its only fair
@schadjoe: Penn State sanctions expected to be extremely harsh and could even be perceived as more damaging long-term than "death penalty"
@schadjoe: Sanctions were not self-imposed or agreed to. This is Emmert taking a stand he felt he had to due to horrors in Freeh Report
How can it get worse than the Death Penalty?
@schadjoe: Penn State facing loss of bowl/s and scholarships, but not so-called death penalty
Yeah I don't believe anything Joe Schad reports...
Remember that video Jeffrey Lee posted of Schad putting on makeup back during the Cam Saga?

How can they do anything without all the facts???????? This is another knee jerk reaction!!!! We don't have all the facts!!
This seems to be the Penn State defense of everything. Quick question: When was the last time we had all the facts on anything? Do we have all the facts on Sandusky? No, but there was enough to put him in jail.

Haha no but not surprised by either one...
unprecedented ...that has to be more than SMU's death penalty right?
Read on a couple other sites that they will get a two year suspension of football and all the players will get full unconditional release and immediate eligibility. Doubt it will be that much, but if that happens that's the end of Penn St.
They wouldn't rush to get penalties out if it was just financial. That will be a part of it, but going outside of normal process to just tell them they are losing money seems unlikely to me.
Hate to remind everyone but ESPN reported
