If you think the NCAA is governed under the U.S. Constitution, transferring would be a godsend.
They will, but it will be a long long time. PSU is a fine institution (outside of what happened) and they have the fans, alumni, history & tradition to come back. Much different than SMU who was never a power and only became one because of paying players. At least 10 years, at least, until Penn St. starts recovering imo. Could be longer depending on how the civil suits/law enforcement investigations go. And there may also be further digging to see if anything else was covered up during that time. If so, it could easily be decades imo.
And I shall rejoice in victory for another 365 days over That School Up North.
It will depend on the # of years for the bowl ban. If it is 3, that should set us back 5-6 years. 4 will be 8-10 years, IMO. Not that we couldn't field competitive teams, but championship teams? It would be tough and we would have to be lucky in terms of injuries and kids playing at or above expectations.

Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
Everyone knows that this tragedy transcends simply football, but for those of you saying they should just disband the football program, think about the financial effect that would have on the town and county.
People (including Emmert) do not understand the collateral damage that would be dealt here.
Creates $17 billion for the Pennsylvania economy each year.
This is crushing. I think that the NCAA's actions really should have a lot of people worried, not just PSU. Big government getting bigger, it's scary the kind of power they're giving themselves. You can see this in the link dpfenny posted. Crazy stuff.
There will be no report that will be as inclusive and deep probing as the Freeh report that PSU commissioned. The NCAA knows this, they won't possibly find anything close to the Freeh report. The Paterno's will find even less.
