Has anybody else heard of this? My mum came home and told me that they cut the football scholarships down from 20, and have all of these penalties on the football team at Penn State because of the molesting that went on the with kids. I don't play "football" (I play soccer kind of football ) but I find this pretty ridiculous and unfair to the players. The coaches are the ones who let this happen. Not the players themselves. And I thought, last I heard, nothing *happened* to the players to go along with what happened to the kids. So why are their opportunities being limited? I don't personally think crippling this programme is going to do much but hurt the kids' opportunities of playing university/professional football. What exactly are they accomplishing by doing this? I would understand if it was the programme the kids were in was ended, however it seems like it is talking about the university's sport itself, which doesn't make sense in my mind.. I'm not a football fan either, so it's not like this will be affecting my life. However if I were a university soccer player, and this kind of this happened to my university where the team and I were being penalised because of some nutty coaches and events I wasn't a part of, I would be pretty upset. I have goals of playing professional, and I'd find it completely unfair and I'm not even clear on their intentions. Thoughts?
