    This isn't about Joe Paterno now, it's about the knee jerk reaction that the NCAA made. They didn't do everything correctly, just like the NFL hasn't done well with Rice and Peterson abuse situations.

    Will we see the Patriots have to give up wins because Aaron Hernandez (allegedly) murdered someone?

    Once again, Paterno reported it. Could he have done more? Used his power? Yes. There are pieces none of us will ever know. The police were involved.

    Everyone knee jerked. The NCAA and Penn State.

    Paterno's name was taking off the Big Ten Championship, off the day care at Nike's World Headquarters, the statue is down outside the stadium, his wife had her university privileges taken away for free access, the name is a mess, it's done.

    Do you take what the young men did in games away from them? No. Let the wins stay. The money will now stay in the area and state to be used to help abuse victims vs the NCAA taking the $60 million and using around as they saw fit when the money was paid for by PA.

    Joe Paterno is dead. Sandusky is behind bars, and the victims have been able to receive compensation. While the compensation will never heal the wrong done to them, they have accepted it.

    The others who did not follow proper protocol are facing legal battles too.

    It's time to move on, and let the kids play football. The players shouldn't lose the wins and the accolades because they had nothing to do with it.

    Pennsylvania has made changes because of this and it's sad that an unfortunate event caused changes and safeguards to be placed, but they are and I hope they never have to see these atrocities again.

    I'm glad the wins are restored.

    The NCAA over stepped it's jurisdiction.

    There never should have been any sanctions.

    Too bad Penn State had to deal with all the stuff that's too late to give back.

    SMU had more scholarships taken from them during the same time frame. Even the fine, from what I heard, is something Penn State could make back. In my opinion, the only way to prevent current players from suffering on the Penn State team is to eliminate the team altogether.

    The NCAA didn't have jurisdiction.

    It was a matter for the civil courts to handle once the judicial system did what it did.

    The NCAA a was wrong for doing what it did.

    The appropriate actions and taking responsibility took place off the field and in the court room as was the appropriate way to handle it.

    I'm sorry but I fail to see how a sex scandal has anything to do with the games that were played on the football field? Did it provide some sort of unfair advantage? Absolutely not.

    Did it provide an unfair advantage in recruiting? absolutely not.

    The incident that happened and the games played on the field are two completely separate things. So to strip wins that happened just makes 0 sense at all.

    As 100% Bronocholic said Sandusky is in jail, Joe Pa is dead and several other punishments have been handed out to the family as appropriate.

    Taking wins away is just the NCAA stepping over their boundaries and doesn't change what we all know actually happened. Which was Joe Pa won those 124 games fair and square. And I think that's why the NCAA finally decided to restore them because the know it was inappropriate.
