I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters.
- Frank Lloyd Wright (1868-1959)
I like most have followed this tragedy for many months. In my assessment of the facts are clear this situation accurately suggests this is truly a NCAA matter. Even though the NCAA rule book does not specifically address breaking laws, they do however focus on ethics, student, coaches, staff conduct and lying. The other content to take into account is the compliance and a culture of cover- up. If what is being reported that players were told not to cooperate with the compliance office under the student rules of conduct you have a much bigger problem. Some if not all of these conspiracies could have led to player ineligibility. If the trail of the thousands of email from the independent report suggest any exchanges of player conduct by these four or Jo Pa's interference with the compliance this becomes a much larger problem for the university. These emails could lend to the belief that PSU was circumventing NCAA rules to keep players eligible. When you have a methodical and systematic culture of cover-up you have to think that the NCAA is going to look under every rock. This will in my estimation will become to most aggress case ever in the history of the NCAA. This will be a benchmark case. Sorry guy, no school is perfect not even Penn State
As it stands now, I beleive before this happens Penn State will self-impose a year long ban. When and If the NCAA imposes punishment, it could include the "death penalty," whereby the Penn State football team would be shut down for at least one year. Articles 2.4 and 10.1 of the NCAA constitution command ethical conduct on behalf of coaches and others associated with athletic programs, and 2.4 expansively states, "These values should be manifest not only in athletics participation, but also in the broad spectrum of activities affecting the athletics program."
