Report: No "Death Penalty" For Penn State

Illustration for article titled Report: No Death Penalty For Penn State

According to Joe Schad, the NCAA will not suspend Penn State football as punishment for the school's role in covering up sexual abuse by convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky.

According to Schad, the penalties could include a "significant" loss of scholarships and bowl ineligibility for several years. A source told Schad that the penalties are thought to be so crippling that "that the death penalty may have been preferable."

CBS reported earlier that the penalties were "unprecedented" and that we had not "seen anything like it."
