Of all the sanctions handed down by the NCAA to Penn State last year in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse convictions, reducing the scholarships was, to me, the most puzzling. First of all, let me say this was a criminal case of which the NCAA has no jurisdiction, not an academic one or recruiting violation. So, I could understand fining the University for possibly trying to cover it up and I could even understand the bowl ban that produces millions of dollars for the school each year, but the scholarship reductions only hurt players on the team now and any future ones that had any desire to play at Penn State and they had nothing to do with Sandusky and his crimes. Sandusky is in jail, Paterno was fired and later died and others will be on trial for perjury and covering up crimes. So now it's time to move on and the NCAA giving back to Penn State scholarships for future kids to play and get an education should have nothing to do with the creepy past of Sandusky and company. The only other aspect of the sanctions I hope they reverse is giving the wins back to Paterno, not for Paterno's sake per se, but for the kids who put tons of effort into getting them and again, had so connection to Sandusky and his crimes. For Paterno, even if he knew more than he led one to believe, the bottom line is that he did influence many young adults to become responsible citizens in the future. I have talked to many who have told me face to face. When they write about the history of this event, forget wins and titles, I hope building the foundation of young men in college is what will not be forgotten when it comes to Paterno.
