Why would PSt pay the legal fees?

Protect those not yet named...don't piss off Curley or Schultz cuz they can probably throw a lot more people under the bus.

WHY IN THE HELL ARE THEY NOT GETTING THE DEATH PENALTY????

There is the Sandusky thing.

There is the women's BBall coach.

Since 2002 46 players have faced 163 criminal charges. 27 of them were convicted or pleaded guilty to 45 of those counts.

LaVon Chisley brutally murdered a fellow student. He was also in a ton of debt because he got dogs, tattoos, etc on credit due to him being an NFL prospect. On top of that he took a $10k loan from an agent. How was this not a major violation?

I am sure this is just scratching the surface. PSU has lost total control of their FB program and deserves the DEATH PENALTY!!!

The thing that I agree with most is the Penn St. Holier than thou attitude. As an Ohioan/Ohio St. Fan, it was painful to see Ohio State and Jim Tressel (rightfully) eviscerated in the national media, while other schools looked on and laughed. Penn State would never do anything dishonest like that, Joe Paterno wouldn't ever stoop to that level. It turns out that Tressel was simply guilty of mundane things, like covering up improper benefits. He broke some arbitrary NCAA rules, but at the end of the day, I still believe in Tressel. Penn State was covering up something so much worse, while acting like they were above it all.

Wasnt' Tressel caught for infractions at every single stop along his coaching path. Never understood why everyone kept acting like it was shocking news that he was cheating at Ohio State too.

I have lost complete faith in the NCAA. It is now open season. I hope we start cheating too. How in the hell was Newton allowed to play in the SEC CG and beyond? And what about the rigged casino games for their athletes? What happened with Oregon? Has that gone away? How in the hell has nothing happened yet to Miami, who the NCAA has been investigating for a year and a half? Ohio St got a slap on the wrist and they are a repeat offender. Then UConn basketball gets nothing for cheating their way to an NCAA title. And need I mention Calipari? Now they won't lift a finger to PSU.

I say commit as many recruiting violations as possible. The NCAA has no power. Even if they do attempt to bring sanctions against SU, we can just go to the courts and point to the above and we will get off. The NCAA can't pick and choose who they punish and what the punishment will be. The total lack of enforcement and fair punishment would make a judge throw out our violations. No matter what we commit there is no way it will be as bad as what has happened at many other schools who got NOTHING as a punishment.

Their Bylaws require them to indemnify university employees unless it's determined they were acting outside the scope of their work (ie. illegally)

You are right about the NCAA, but the NCAA is the least of Penn State worries right now. On a scale of 1-10 where 1 is nothing and 10 is bankruptcy and closure of the university, the retirement of JoePa is sliding down the scale towards the not so bad outcomes.

Doesn't every kid molested after the shower incident have a serious legal claim against PSU, against anyone including JoePa who knew about it.

I have been behind the curve on this, busy with my own life, but now i am catching up on my sports podcasts, and the seriousness is starting to sink in, Wow.

I think we could get away with openly cheating in basketball. The NCAA would make an example of our football program. We're the perfect program for them to do it to. Nice history so enough of a name to show they did something, but not a big enough fan base to cause any type of visceral reaction.
