Instead of punishing all for the actions of the few, punish the few. All NCAA coaches and athletic department employees should have a codicil in their contracts that calls for forfeiture of salaries if found guilty of breaking NCAA rules or federal, state or local laws. They shouldn't be able to stay one step ahead of trouble by moving to another job while the previous school suffers.
If the remaining Penn State coaches knew more about the scandal, fire them and find temporary coaches for the bowl game. And Penn State should donate its bowl paycheck to a children's charity.
No comparison to Miami
The answer is a resounding no.
The NCAA is in the earliest stages of its investigation into whether there was a lack of institutional control at Penn State during the last decade or longer.
In response to an NCAA investigation into whether some current and former athletes received improper benefits, Miami on Sunday announced it was self-imposing a bowl ban.
That decision makes sense.
But we're comparing apples to oranges here. The Hurricanes may have done things that altered on-field play. The current Nittany Lions were in middle school when former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky's alleged rapes were said to have occurred.
Penn State, don't punish yourself this way.
