Ah, yes, gwenc02, I misunderstood and see your point. Apologies! I guess, though, my heart isn't breaking because if an athlete is at the level where he was offered a Penn State football scholarship, he will have plenty of options elsewhere. I don't see there being a huge trickle-down effect from the 20 athletes who ultimately will go somewhere else each year. I would love to see Penn State take the football scholarships they can't award for athletics and award them as academic scholarships.



And I can understand that. I just know from personal experience how hard it can be to pay for college and I don't see how making it harder for anyone, especially students who would have wanted to go to another school anyway, is a reasonable punishment. Punish Penn State - they screwed up. Don't punish the kids.
