Right. Because another school looking at this will conclude that the millions and millions PSU is going to lose in the upcoming lawsuits will still have made it worthwhile but losing their football program, that would push it over the top in term of risk/reward analysis.
How many millions and millions are they making each year on their football program again?
There are at least 10 victims that we know of and probably more. That could mean a hundred million in payouts or more. Yes, Penn State football generates a lot of money ($30m/year according to some sources), but when all is said and done its going to be a long time before the footbally money offsets what they have to pay out. Not to mention that since Penn State is a public university, taking away any source of income will simply shift the financial cost to the taxpayers of Pennsylvania.
The Freeh report goes after four people. They were the ones at Penn State that knew what was going on and made the horrible decisions. They were all fired by the board of regents as soon as this came out last fall.
So who are these proposed NCAA sanctions penalizing, anyway?
