It's a relief to me that Penn State officials have accepted the NCAA's sanctions without threat of appeal. No one wants this horrible mess to be drawn out any longer. Remorse and cooperation are the only appropriate responses. The football program at Penn State became a little too all-encompassing and caused some people to lose all perspective about anything else, and that is the situation these sanctions wish to rectify.
It will be interesting to see if Penn State Alums still buy season's tickets and flock to Beaver Stadium. Hey, it's still a good place to tailgate and meet up with old friends.
Penn State is great place to go to school, and I'd love to go up for a visit some quiet weekend, just to walk around and look at all the old places and see all the new ones, as well. So much has happened since I've been gone.
One thing is for certain: I'm proud, very proud, of how Penn State's officials have reacted to these sanctions.
