Dahlberg: NCAA’s discipline not unfair to Penn St.
Banning Penn State from bowl games for four years won’t bring back the innocence Jerry Sandusky took from who knows how many young boys. Taking football scholarships away and vacating wins over the past 14 years will do nothing to help them heal.
And the $60 million fine handed down Monday by the NCAA won’t be nearly enough to buy back Penn State’s self-respect.
Sure, the punishment was extreme. It guts a proud program, and makes Saturdays in the fall a lot less pleasurable for alumni and the millions of fans who bought into the facade Joe Paterno created and believed the football factory wasn’t just about winning but “Success With Honor.”
