"For those of you screaming, "But that doesn’t punish Penn State! A bunch of requirements to assist victims of child abuse instead of a bowl ban or death penalty lets Penn State off the hook!" Ask yourself this question: What impact does the punishment of Penn State football have on your life? It’s true, the suggestions in section 4b above would less profoundly harm Penn State’s football program. But what is really the goal here? All along, I thought the goal was to do anything possible to help the victims recover while preventing child abuse in the future. Jerry Sandusky’s victims (and child sex abuse in general) were supposed to be the point of this whole thing. The antagonists of this story (Sandusky, Curley, Shultz, and debatably Spanier and Paterno) are 9+ months removed from the program and being punished severely by the legal system. By focusing solely on damaging the Penn State football program, Mark Emmert has missed the point entirely."
