    howie_feltersnatch: The Steelers were considered to have had possession because they kicked the fucking ball off?

    According to the ref before the coin toss, both teams get a possession unless (a) defense scores, or (b) touchdown scored. It's supposed to just get rid of the cheap field goal first drive wins.

    I am glad the loving hand of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ hath delivered unto Tim Tebow another victory on this day. And I pray that Our Heavenly Father also has it in His plan that the Broncos steamroll the Patriots with the Holy Cleats of Divine Justice.

    I want the Ravens to be the ones that crush him.

    This was a lot harder to look up than I expected it to be (is there some Retrosheet equivalent for football?), but as far as I can tell, since the NFL went to a 12-team playoff format in 1990, this is only the third time ever that home teams have won every game on the first weekend (2000, 2006).

Oh wait he does not have one. Yet he does have every mannerism of a homosexual male. I think he will be a better player once he comes out and gets that monkey off his back.

    btw why isn't Penn State in serious trouble with the NCAA?? USC got punished hard because an agent bought Reggie Bush a house. That's not even close to being as horrible as a coach molesting disadvantaged children for 15 years while people higher up knew something was going on!

    All of this has yet to be proven in court. Punishing before that goes against our laws. The NCAA if they do anything will wait for a guilty verdict at least.

    Because using bribery to enroll players a team needs to be competitive is something that sets a bad example and is against the mission statement of the NCAA. It's more about discouraging other schools from trying the same thing. USC was made an example of. What happened at Penn State is criminal on a whole other level, and the actions and/or inaction of those employed by the university that covered it up affected lives outside of college sports. The court of public opinion is going to see Penn State as tarnished, but just because the criminal acts occurred in and around the football program doesn't mean the NCAA needs to punish the school. Those involved are going to get punished enough.

    It was a university-wide failing. You can't let something like that slip through the cracks. Losing bowl eligibility and scholarships for a couple years is nothing when you think about what those little boys went through. If nothing else, taking away that football money might make the university administration keep a closer eye on what's going on in the future.

    The individuals involved may have kept their mouths shut because of "OMG PATERNO IS INFALLIBLE PENN STATE'S SHINING EXCELLENCE IS LEGENDARY AND SHALL NEVER BE TARNISHED IT WOULD BE TOO DEVASTATING FOR ALL THE FANS TO FIND OUT"... You know, the whole folklore and pride deal. Kind of like the Catholic church but with football as the religion. Anyway, despite that retarded logic and the stupid mindset of the community/region that appears to have nothing substantial to offer society other than "WE SURE LOVE FOOTBALL!" - yeah, no need for a scorched earth policy in doling out the punishment.

    howie_feltersnatch: The individuals involved may have kept their mouths shut because of "OMG PATERNO IS INFALLIBLE PENN STATE'S SHINING EXCELLENCE IS LEGENDARY AND SHALL NEVER BE TARNISHED IT WOULD BE TOO DEVASTATING FOR ALL THE FANS TO FIND OUT"... You know, the whole folklore and pride deal. Kind of like the Catholic church but with football as the religion. Anyway, despite that retarded logic and the stupid mindset of the community/region that appears to have nothing substantial to offer society other than "WE SURE LOVE FOOTBALL!" - yeah, no need for a scorched earth policy in doling out the punishment.

    You got upvoted by ILB, who probably didn't notice that.

    magic nipples: I still think PSU holds some responsibility.

    You mean like the president of the university and the athletic director perjuring themselves in front of a grand jury?

    magic nipples: That people in positions of authority should take more of an active role in the way their university is run.

    Obviously they were the wrong people to have in those roles, eh?

    A lack of action is also a crime.

    And, last I checked, no one has been found guilty of anything.

    harrisonfire: Okay.

    If there are 10 men in a room, and three are guilty, and those three are punished, what say you to the other seven?


    The other 7 would be held accountable by a different set of rules that were put in place by the organization they decided to join. The 3 that were found guilty were tried in a criminal court. The other 7 would be dealt with internally.

    Everyone has been fired.

    If your child attended Penn State, would he/she also deserve punishment?

    How about the townies? Them too?

    I'm not talking about criminal liability! The NCAA has penalties for lack of administrative control. I think this is a pretty clear case of that. These are the rules PSU agreed to follow when they joined the NCAA.

    I'm not saying I want innocent people put in prison because they worked in the same building with a pedophile.

    howie_feltersnatch: Because using bribery to enroll players a team needs to be competitive is something that sets a bad example and is against the mission statement of the NCAA.

    The NCAA can take a long walk off a short pier, and bring its mission statement along with it. The selective enforcement of the rules is absurd, and college athletes should be eligible for loan programs with graduated payback systems contingent on their professional futures. Get a big pro contract? Pay back your loan with extra interest. Don't make it in the pros? Partial loan forgiveness.

    As much as I wanted to punish the mouthbreather students protesting the firing of JoePa with the fist of an angry god... Nope. The football culture blinding them all to the magnitude of the situation that ruined the lives of children infuriates me, but you can't enforce thought.

    Did I say that? I did not.

    No one has been punished. Being fired is not an appropriate punishment for rape.

    Honestly. Are you trying to argue that????

    The only way for the action to be addressed appropriately is:
    1) Those found guilty of the rape, or any form of complicity, get punished
    2) PSU loses its ability to play NCAA football.

    And sadly, 2) is needed. No one will care about 1) next fall. The only thing that will make this sink in is for them.

    The players will find other schools. The townies will live on. Perhaps the school will start focusing on academics instead of football.

    I haven't read the book, but have heard several interviews with the author. The economics of college sports are absolutely nuts. You'd figure getting selected for a bowl game would be a big monetary windfall for a school, right? Wrong, and when public universities are involved, the taxpayers foot the bill.

    Sports doesn't trump rape, and firing someone is not adequate punishment for rape, either!

    The guilty parties should serve prison terms.

    BUT. The university has a mindset of "football uber alles," with an entire city and alumni of enablers. That needs to be addressed.

    The idea of an NCAA sanction is not "punishing everyone." It will make the school have to focus on something other than football.

    I don't follow college football for exactly the skewed priorities involved, but the last big sanction I remember was TCU's probation.

    According to the Wiki, the NCAA Death Penalty has been applied before, and somehow the schools survived. Perhaps they focused on education.

    This shouldn't be the NCAA's problem. If the Penn State university president had a shred of decency, they would unilaterally shut the football program down.

    Not sure I agree. I think they should at least look at the program and see if this was known and allowed to continue. If so then they could do something.

    The reason the coverup lasted so long is because the highest of the higher-ups in the chain of command were corrupt. The structure was pure fail. They should definitely investigate those on the lower rungs to find out every single shred of what they may have known, though.

    Yeah thats my thinking as well. If and when a lack of administrative control is shown then they can go from there. Like you said things like this take time. And I would rather have a good,thorough investigation instead of a rushed sloppy one.
