There's more coming as the Big Ten will announce additional penalties for Penn State at 11 am EDT. I expect the Big Ten to announce that Penn State will not be eligible for the championship game because of the NCAA post-season ban. Perhaps the Big Ten will ban Penn State football from TV appearances - at a minimum from the Big Ten network for a period of time. I don't know if the conference can prevent Penn State from appearing on ABC or ESPN. Further, the Big Ten could reduce Penn State's share of the revenue distribution.

I agree that a substantial punishment was warranted but also agree that killing the football program at this point would hurt many people who had nothing to do with the scandal. I believe the NCAA accomplished this. We'll see what the Big Ten does.
