Penn State Sanctions [Ben]

The President of the NCAA, Mark Emmert, is giving a press conference right now.

You can watch the press conference here.
[Update: Press conference is over]

The penalties are as follows:
1. A 60 million dollar fine against Penn State. That money will be used to help fund child sexual abuse programs. For context, 60 million dollars is roughly one year's profits for Penn State's football program. Also, college money is fungible, so this might come at the expense of academic departments.
2. Penn State is banned from participating in Bowl games for four years.
3. Penn State has to reduce 10 initial and 20 total scholarships for each year over the next four years.
4. Any current player or incoming athlete can transfer without penalty. Emmert also announced that any scholarship athletes that don't want to play for Penn State can stay at school with full scholarship. (h/t Jeff Emanuel)
5. All wins from 1998 to 2011 will be vacated.

I wish Joe Paterno had lived long enough to see this.
