STATE COLLEGE, PA –  Sources say that the NCAA will soon give Penn State the “death penalty” for football – canceling their 2012 season.

The scandal surrounding Pennsylvania State University has many people calling for the school’s illustrious football program to receive the NCAA’s dreaded death penalty.  And it looks like they may get their wish.

The NCAA “death penalty,” was given out once before to Southern Methodist University in the 1980s doesn’t directly kill off a program, but it does choke its ability to thrive, if not survive by withholding scholarships, banning post season appearances and the like.

The former Penn State defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky, has been charged with multiple counts of child molestation, following reports that he engaged in homosexual behavior with boys who were as young as 10 years old. That charge led to the downfall of the university’s president and revered head coach, Joe Paterno.

Typically, there is no mechanism within the NCAA governing body to punish Penn State regarding the Sandusky scandal. This is a law enforcement matter only. The NCAA, however,  has reviewed the matter and feel that a number of their own rules were broken.

Many believe that for Jerry Sandusky’s victims, their lives as they knew them died the moment he laid a hand on them. So too should the program that was placed above the children suffer the same fate.

Penn State needs to rebuild its reputation and sources say that the NCAA feels that the “death penalty” will allow them to start anew.

An insider at the NCAA  said, “We may have been wrong to administer the death penalty so many years ago to SMU, but for it to not be used again in this case, would be a tragedy for all of collegiate sports.”

Players can now move on and transfer to other schools without having to sit out a year.   Meanwhile, Penn State can start to rebuild one of the most storied football programs in America.

Penn State football is confident it can recreate its image from scratch.  The NCAA agrees and “the only way for rebirth to happen is them to receive the ultimate penalty first.”

And there go the Nittany Lions…

  1. If you want to punish the football players and fans, Why not give the death penalty to all PSU sports! Better yet why not shut down the whole Penn State University. That way you can punish everyone including students, teachers and employees? On a serious note, why punish everyone for the actions of a few? Does that mean if a coach on the football team commits a murder, the whole football team and all the fans should go to jail?

    • But it's for the CHILDREN!!!! Don't you know that there are predators hiding behind every tree and rock, just waiting to jump out and harm our babies! ;-p

  2. After being arraigned on sodomy charges Jerry Sandusky made a public accouncement that he is throwing his hat into the ring and running for President. Unimpressed with the current selection of Republican candidates, Sandusky says that he will be a formidable challenger with new ideas and a fresh perspective. "Ive been planning on running for years now. I figure it's now or never. If elected I can pardon myself and get back to work helping troubled youth", Sandusky said.

  3. This is true, but you are only scratching the surface here. There are pretty inside good sources indicating that Penn State may lose its accreditation, which would pretty much make all past, present, and future diplomas at the school more or less worthless. And that's just the beginning. It's unlikely that the school would be able to remain open for another 5 years once the accreditation is lost, since professors and students will exit en masse and private donations will cease entirely. The entire town of State College will suffer immensely, as their revenue base depends on heavy PSU traffic. Unbelievable that one man can cause this much damage in the world. I'm not a PSU hater, I think this is sad.

  4. When use is continuous, as it might be in the case of file sharing, Internet radio or streaming video, a few users who use the connection at high rates for hours at a time may seriously impair the service of others. The concept is more relevant in cable internet where both the core network and the access network are shared, than in DSL where the core network is shared but the access network is not. It is most relevant in wireless internet, particularly satellite internet, where both the core network and the access network are shared and total network bandwidth is relatively narrow.
