All I have read are reasons why the NCAA technically does not have jurisdiction to punish PSU as there was no competitive advantage gained via their criminal conduct.
I contend there were competitive advantages realized by the football program as result of the institutions criminal conduct.
1. They covered it up to protect the football brand and by extension University revenues
2. By not exposing the criminal conduct of a coach they avoided the potential crippling effects of scandal
3. This was covered with the express intent of safeguarding their football brand and to ensure the revenues associated with
4. By hiding the conduct they were able to continue successfully recruiting and competing at high levels
5. Ergo, competitive advantages gained via criminal conduct and the egregious exploitation
I understand that this string relies on the assumption that a scandal would have affected recruitment and thus program success. However, for obvious reasons, I am confident in this assumption.
