Everyone has been waiting around to see what kind of punishment Penn State University will receive after the findings of the Freeh Report by former FBI director Louis Freeh. Well, after 9 a.m. Monday morning, the wait to hear the punishments from the NCAA will be no more.
Per CBS Sports, a high-ranking NCAA source has informed them that the NCAA will announceÂ ”unprecedented Â penalties” against the Penn State football team and the university itself.
“I’ve never seen anything like it,” the NCAA source told CBS.
The decision will come from NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis tomorrow morning.Â NCAA President Mark Emmert will announce the long-awaited decision that will surely not sit well with the Nittany Lion faithful, who have unimaginably stood by legendary head coach Joe Paterno and the school throughout this entire scandal.
The NCAA was waiting to make a decision on punishment until they heard back from the university on key questions regarding the sexual abuse on campus and the following cover-up from university officials and the football staff. It’s safe to say Emmert and company were not satisfied with the response they received.
Penn State and their football team appear to be in big trouble and they deserve it. No punishment could be enough for the university, but hopefully it does not hurt the current players who had nothing to do with the monsters of the past.
Any Penn State football player should be allowed to transfer from the program without being forced to redshirt a season.
Other than that, swing the hammer hard. It will be interesting to see what exactly the sanctions handed down tomorrow include.
