Does Penn State's football program deserve the NCAA death penalty?
It would make some critics feel better. But would it help the situation?
If Penn State administrators didn't discuss Sandusky's acts in hopes of keeping the school's reputation, it failed.
That's the lesson.
Adding punishment on today's student athletes and today's fans - who had nothing to do with Sandusky's acts - won't add to the lesson.
People will still be talking about Penn State in a bad light for years to come - that's the school's punishment.
