Leaked Penn State Penalties

Here's a screenshot of what could be announced tomorrow.

If true, the penalties are unprecedented.  It's hard to imagine but it now appears likely that there will be no football in State College in this year.  What's more, all current players will be allowed to transfer without penalty.  There will be no TV until 2015 and no football recruiting in 2013.

Now, the last thing I want to see is for Maryland to openly attempt to profit from this scandal but it's hard to imagine that Edsall and Locksley won't be reaching out to former recruits who chose Penn State.  It's virtually certain that these players will be reaching out on their own anyway since there is no reason now to stay in State College.

It's not the death penalty but it is close.

Update 10:00AM ET
OK, so that screenshot wasn't accurate; but it was pretty close.  They just about everything right outside of PSU being banned from football all of 2013.

Back to the FSU Exit Thing

FSU currently runs about a $2M budget deficit. Over the past couple of years, according to the USA Today, FSU’s spending has outstripped its revenues by roughly $8M. This from a school that can’t even win the middling ACC. Burt Reynolds or Lee Corso must be their staff accountant. But let’s entertain the financial issues that FSU will face shou [...] Read More »

Lax Championship Thread

I know precious little about Lacrosse; but I do have a rooting hierarchy.  Obviously, the Terps come first, forever and always.  After that, I root for Maryland-based schools in reverse order of their tradition of success.  As such, I root for Loyola over Hopkins and Navy and they give UMBC and Towson a run for their money too.  [...] Read More »

Maryland Becomes Boise State East

Get a good look at that, folks.  It could be the what you see when you walk into Byrd Stadium come September.  Nevermind that the product on this field is likely to compete 30% of its passes; we have new fancy artificial turf field. There is a fine line between being avant-garde and a laughingstock.  Personally, I don't think the [...] Read More »

NU h [...] Read More »

Pankey Is Gone Too

Ashton Pankey just tweeted that he is also leaving the University.  Pankey is the third player to transfer in the last month.  While Stoglin (I'm still smarting) and Parker left because they prefer ganja to basketball; Pankey's decision seems to be related more to family issues.  Future playing time may have also been a considera [...] Read More »

Terrell Stoglin Leaves Maryland

It's a bombshell, and seemingly out of leftfield; but it's true.  Terrell Stoglin is leaving the University of Maryland after two seasons.  Apparently, he never bought into Turgeon's system and the coach's view for their future together. The result is that Stoglin has been encouraged to leave the program.  It's shocking, but Mark [...] Read More »
