    Penn State Should Have Gotten The Death Penalty


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     EWillies1961 says Penn State University deserves harsher sanctions than what was imposed by the NCAA. “It needs to be shown that whenever you fall out of scope, whenever you do these types of wrong, there is no coming back. There will be strong penalties." He says Penn State's football program deserves to be cancelled for at least one season, emphasizing that universities must shift their focus from football to education. “Already we spend too much of academia's effort and gravitas on sports instead of the science, math, and other subjects that move us forward. It is for many of these reasons we continue to fall behind academically.”

    An example should have been made of Penn State. Many lives were destroyed because football was too big to fail. While what occurred at Penn State was wrong at outrageous this in many degrees occur in many other programs.

    Look football is a panacea for a select few athletes but for all practical purpose an abuse to most. Most athletes go to college at the big programs believing it is a ticket to the major league. Studies are just an aside, a formality. As such much leave ill prepared for any profession of substance.
