The Death Penalty - Penn State Needs It Now!
The Death Penalty in college sports is usually the most horrendous action that the NCAA can deliver upon a college sports program. It has been implemented only five times in all of the history of college sports.
The first time was in 1952-1953 when the University of Kentucky basketball program was first involved in point-shaving and also involved in paying their players to play college basketball. The second time was in 1973-1975 when the University of Southwestern Louisiana, now known as the University of Louisiana at Layfayette, basketball program was found guilty by the NCAA of violations including academic fraud and financial payola. The third time was in 1987-1988 when the Southern Methodist University football program while on probation for paying players was found guilty of paying players. The fourth time was in 2004-2005 when the soccer program at Morehouse College was found to have recruited former professional players to play college soccer. The fifth time was in 2005-2007 when the tennis program at MacMurray College paid scholarhips to atheletes who were not eligible for scholarships at the Division III level.
It might seem crazy, but everyone left in charge in the State of Pennsylvania, from the Governor who allegedly encouraged the Board of Trustees of The Pennsylvania State University to fire coach Paterno, down to the new interim football coach Tom Bradley need the NCAA to enact the Death Penalty for the rest of this year and all of next year. And they need it done, now!
For if it is not done very, very soon the corporate sponsors, who are associated with The Pennsylvania State University will abandon them as the media spotlight is pointed to them. With the taint of rumors that rich donors were the beneficiaries of an alleged child sex ring surfaces, the corporate sponsors will abandon Penn State.Continued on the next page
