For the following reasons, PSU's dismissal from the Big Ten is definitely on the table:
1) PSU's image is going to harm the Big Ten's brand for years. The Big Ten does NOT need to be associated with the mess going on in Happy Valley.
2) PSU's football program is going to be decimated by the ongoing penalties, NCAA sanctions, etc. Hell, Penn State may even be obliged to suspend their football program indefinitely.
3) The last thing the Big Ten needs is another weak football program (we already have several of them), and it is going to take PSU a decade to get back on the map, if ever.
4) The Big Ten HAS to take some sort of action here. This goes beyond memorabilia and tattoos. This Big Ten Conference needs to (and I believe they will) send a message about the types of schools that are good enough to be a member of this great institution. Unlike the SEC, the Big Ten's brand is largely based on academic reputation...this compels the Conference to do something serious about the PSU situation.
