Mother f*cking THANK YOU! finally someonw that sees the absolute lack of authority the NCAA has in the psu case. Total abuse and overstepping of authority. Neg/hate me all ya want but while I obviously agree what went on was BEYOND atrocious (if king, I would settle this with a bullet or noose) the NCAA gave THEMSELVES "special powers" to punish the innocent in a criminal matter/viollation/act.
Would anyone want the NCAA investigating and handing out punishment for real crimes? Like, say, RAPE or murder? F*ck no! Let the government courts do their legal jobs as they have been doing.
Not knowing is just ignorance and turning a blind eye is a criminal act. Knowingly choosing to "not know" is a criminal act. It's a LEGAL matter, not one of academic or athletic advantage/misgiving for advantage.
LOIC does not apply here by NCAA code, just legal. Also, it is a state college. Let the state handle it. What the NCAA did was wrong and it opened up a huge can of worms.
(Also, btw, not a psu fan or lover. Never hated them but never liked them. It was a fuuuu'd up situation but not one to do with the NCAA and everyone who thinks otherwise only has the argument of "but it was horrible! look what usc and osu did in comparison!" but that misses the point. Those WERE NCAA issues. psu was not.)
