I was reading a piece by CBS columnist Bryan Fischer today on Penn State, and one line stood out to me:
“I think we should be careful that we don’t paint the entire football program over a long period of time with a single brush,” university president Rodney Erickson told reporters Thursday. “This particular tragedy happened within the football program but it could have happened many other places.”
So what do you think?
To me, this is an important question for the NCAA. They have to know the answer because they have to decide, not only if punishment is necessary, but if deterrent should also be part of the equation.
