Penn State Hit With Over 60 Million Dollars In Fines From The NCAA Over Role In Sandusky Scandal

This morning the NCAA announced the penalties for Penn State’s role in the Jerry Sandusky pedophilia scandal which will include wins from ’98-’11 vacated and $60 million dollars in fines and more.

Penn State was socked with a four-year postseason ban, the loss of 40 scholarships over four years and a $60 million fine stemming from  its actions in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.

In addition, all victories from 1998-2011 have been vacated, a huge blow to the coaching legacy of Joe Paterno, now formerly the leader in Division I college football victories…….

The reaction of Penn State was one of acceptance.

“Today we receive a very harsh penalty from the NCAA and as head coach of the Nittany Lions football program, I will do everything in my power to not only comply, but help guide the university forward to become a national leader in ethics, compliance and operational excellence,” Coach Bill O’Brien, Paterno’s successor, said in a statement released by the school. “I knew when I accepted the position that there would be tough times ahead. But I am committed for the long term to Penn State and our student athletes.”

The $60 million fine, amounts fo one year’s gross revenue from the football program and will be used to endow a fund for victims of abuse and to prevent future abuse,.  Penn State athletes will be free to transfer and retain immediate eligibility, due to the possibility of a mass exodus from the University.

Although the school avoided the so-called death penalty, which would have shut the program down, the sanctions are so serious that it could take the school years to recover.

The penalties come one day after Penn State tore down its statue of Joe Paterno. The action came two days after a banner plane flew over the university bearing the warning: “Tear it down or we will.”

Rush Limbaugh Claims The Powerful Gay Lobby Is Preventing The Media From Saying Jerry Standusky Is Gay

On his radio show last week, Rush Limbaugh claimed that the “powerful gay lobby” is stopping the media from calling Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who has been charged with child molestation “gay”

LIMBAUGH: Sandusky does not represent all of homosexuality, just like the priests in the Catholic Church don’t represent all of homosexuality, just like the aberrant criminals in heterosexual society don’t represent all heterosexuals. But because the gay lobby is very powerful, people don’t go there. People don’t address it, they don’t talk about it, and as such, an element of the problem never gets dealt with.

Perhaps Limberger Limbaugh doesn’t understand the reason the media isn’t calling Sandusky “gay” is because Standusky DOES NOT identify as gay, is married,  has grown children and experts say that men who molest young boys aren’t necessarily gay, and there is no credible link between homosexuality and pedophilia.

But that doesn;t stop old expert Rush who exclaimed:  “Sandusky has to be — he’s a gay guy. Nobody’s mentioning that aspect, because it’s just too dangerous.”

Perhaps Limbaugh has some first hand experience at pedophilia that we all know nothing about that makes him an expert.    Limbaugh keeps calling this subject “the elephant in the room” maybe thats because Sandusky as well as Joe Paterno are BOTH registered Republican’s

Maybe it’s a “GOP” thing?

“Sandusky has to be — he’s a Republican”

Limbaugh’s attitude is exactly the type of attitude that also equates rape with sex and sexual harassment with sexual attraction. 

Oh, wait.  That’s Herman Cain
