July 30 (Bloomberg) -- The problem with the National
Collegiate Athletic Association’s sanctions against Pennsylvania
State University isn’t that they punish student-athletes who had
no role in the coverup of Jerry Sandusky’s sexual abuse of boys.
It’s not that they are meaningless, “reversing” past
victories that took place on the field, or that they are too
harsh, damaging Penn State’s football program even after the
death of former coach Joe Paterno.
