There has been plenty of talk about what legal actions are being taken and what the NCAA should do about Penn State, but I haven't heard much about what we in the Big Ten community think our conference should do to handle the situation.
I personally think that the Big Ten should give PSU the boot. Let them go crawling to the ACC or Big East or become independent, don't care just cut them loose. Replacing them might not be easy, but the Big Ten is supposed to stand for excellence and even a Rutgers or Maryland looks better right now from my perspective. Nebraska losing its status among the AAU was enough to question their fitness. This type of thing being allowed to happen at PSU surely is 100x more damning and harmful to the Big Ten's reputation.
Back when this whole Sandusky story broke, the Big Ten stated that they would have their own say beyond what the NCAA or legal system would do. What do you all think the Big Ten should do?
Edit: Full disclosure - I live in Pennsylvania currently and there are a lot of Penn State grads and just casual fans that I deal with every day. Some of them are willing to confront this issue, but it seems that most of them are just waiting it out until they can get their football so that is can all just blow over. If the Big Ten just shrugs it off and basically says that things are just the same, just cough up some money PSU, nothing to see here, move along everyone, what does that say about it as an institutuion?
