Penn State Sanctions

Randy Bish/Politicalcartoons.com

 

Penn State has received the harshest penalty the NCAA has ever handed down.  Penn State will have to endure a four-year ban on bowl games, a $60 million dollar fine and 40 fewer scholarships.  The sanctions were delivered to Penn State for the abuse and cover up of sexual abuse against young boys.  The NCAA stated that this was the most "egregious behavior" seen in NCAA history.  The objective is not to hurt the football players at Penn State but to serve as a reminder of the atrocious conduct of Jerry Sandusky and Joe Paterno.  Penn State will now have to endure the breakdown of their football program and try and decide how to rebuild the reputation of their tarnished name.  Click here to see what our cartoonists think in this cartoon slideshow called Penn State Sanctions.
