Penn State Nittany Lions hit with $60 million fine, 4-year bowl ban, wins dating to 1998 – ESPN.
The NCAA has acted on the report from Louis Freeh, which outlines the role of Joe Paterno and other Penn State officials in covering up Coach Jerry Sandusky’s sexual abuse of boys.
With heretofore unheard of speed and severity, the NCAA has slapped the Penn State football team with a 60 million dollar fine, a collection of financially crippling sanctions, and redaction of Paterno’s wins since 1998. A former chairman of the committee on infractions has stated that the NCAA normally does not intervene in criminal matters involving college sports personnel.
Countless uninvolved parties will share in the burden and costs incurred by the actions of a select few individuals. Pharmer expects this 60 million dollar ruling to make the NCAA and many lawyers richer, while it makes students poorer.
Lawsuits by any affected parties, to appeal this ruling, are likely futile, because the University has admitted culpability and signed onto the consent decree of NCAA penalties with no objections and agreed that there would be no legal recourse.

Read it…… because she wants us to trust the FDA, even though it doesn’t do what she says it does. She wants the little girls who aren’t allowed to get their ears pierced without mommy signing, and who are not allowed to carry ibuprofen or naproxen to school for alleviating their first menstrual cramps, to be able to buy the morning after pill with their lunch money.
A comment had been appended to the article, but since it might not last there, here’s a portion of it:
“Should we not be protecting our children from those who think it’s OK for 11 year olds to have sex, and buy a drug entity which is 60 percent effective per use, associated with virilization of female fetuses, increased susceptibility to STDs, and osteoporosis, and is not studied in the pre-teen population?” .
“We should not be placing faith in the FDA, which has mishandled the HUGE shortages of medically vital drugs and chemotherapeutic agents. Lives have been lost and countless more are at risk because the drug supplies have become so unpredictable that rational adaptations and substitutions cannot be made in a timely manner. Our government has been exacerbating this problem while it diddles with the desires of people who want sexual access to the pediatric population.”

It’s a time for appropriate alliterations. Click above for one of the very best comments on the Penn State Scandal, placed in proper context.
The media is screaming about Penn State covering up the *alleged crimes of Joe Sandusky. But they support Planned Parenthood, an established pedophile protector. The government is fully invested in the mission of planned parenthood to the extent of forcing us to pay for it, and holding all other health care hostage for their sacrament of abortion.
Coach McQueary is being flogged for failing to report Sandusky to the police immediately. He claims that he did discuss it with campus police, however. Pharmer is not so judgmental regarding McQueary because the guy probably was in shock and was not immediately sure if his eyes were telling him the truth. He was a grad student at the time, not a medical practitioner, and apparently NOT a kiddie porn user. Pedophilia is not part of everyone’s life experience. Most of the same people who castigate McQueary have been voting to support planned parenthood for years.
Pharmer sees major hypocrisy in the media, every time she looks.
* We write “alleged” to describe infractions or accusations which are not yet established by convictions in a court of law. This keeps the lawyers away from us.
2 Penn State officials tied to sex abuse case step down – CNN.com.
Timothy Curley, Athletic Director, and Gary Schultz, Senior VP for finance and business are stepping down from their posts after being accused of perjury in the sex abuse case of former coach Jerry Sandusky. Curley is placed on administrative leave, and Schultz is retiring. The University is paying for their legal defense, since it pertains to their performance of their jobs.
Both are under fire for failing to report the sex abuse incidents brought to their attention to authorities, and for lying about having been told of the incident.
