Not really. I know what you are saying, but its not a recruitment issue. No one has been found guilty of anything yet involved with the coverup. They went 100% on the word of the FBI investigation with zero of their own investigation and zero interviewing the offending admins.

I am not saying Penn State is right, I am just saying its a slippery slope. The NCAA has always been really bad at being judge,jurry, and executioner, but this time they did it with out really any due proccess for Penn State.

If you dont get what i am saying, then I will never make you understand that the proccess is sometimes is mroe important than the outcome. (actually most of the time) The ends dont justify the means. Everyone desrves due proccess and the ability to defend themselves. Further the NCAA has a defined role of what they administer, and this is over steppinging it.

Basically the reason they can throw the book at someone for getting free tatoos is becasue the NCAA says that the legal system doesnt matter to them, its their laws that matter. Well I challenge the NCAA to find the statute that Penn State broke. This was a matter for the legal system well before the NCAA stepped in.

That said, eh, I aint mad, Penn State deserves everything they got.

You know Lee this is a really good post and exactly what I wanted to say. I don't want to come off as defending PSU. I don't think there is a defense for what Joe Pa and the other bigwigs did there. But, as you stated, the new NCAA president is acting as a dictator in this case. I get frustrated by how slow some of these infraction situations are as well. But, due process and democracy takes time. For him to unilaterally usurp NCAA bylaws and enforce his own brand of justice scares me. The precedent is now set. The NCAA president can now meet out his own brand of justice without a notice of allegations, hearing, or even NCAA bylaws being violated. I was appalled by what happened at PSU as the next guy. But, man I don't want the NCAA president to be judge, jury, and executioner.

they just lost arguably their best commit for next year in Dorian Johnson.

It will be a meltdown in Rhythmic Slappy Valley when Hackenberg follows suit & gets out.

4the recruit to decommit SINCE the sanctions were handed down (one decommitted 2 days prior to the sanctions as well).

the wheels are flying off the bus.
