I don't know, but they shouldn't if they aren't out to punish the players.
i dont know about the scholly limit. I just know that urban is already on the phone with dorian johnson.
They have to count against the scholly limit or your giving some schools a "competitive playing advantage " which is an NCAA infraction imo
I read a couple tweets that said it won't, I'm sure they will go more in depth about it soon.
NCAA has also waived the normal official visit limit and allowing the current PSU players to take as many officials as they need.
Well, that would be insane if it doesnt.
For example, OSU could take 10 PSU players, not have it count against their limit which is already lower because of penalties.
I'm sure they will have a limit on how many players each team can take in, something like 5-8.
Maybe but it still offsets the teams that have scholly limits already
I think they should limit the number of kids a team can take on but not count them against scholarship numbers. You can be pretty sure that a lot of kids have 2nd, 3rd and 4th picks of universities that are filled up.
psu fans on their board already giving up on psu and saying they're farewells and goodbyes to all the fans and saying they need to look for something else to do on Saturdays. i feel so bad for them. if this happened to michigan i will definitely have a heart attack. knowing that the school and football program that you love and cant wait for every saturday is completely finish is just to much. i dont blame them. they have nothing to play for anymore and are gonna have 3 win seasons for a long time

Official thing is they can go over for transfers this year, but have to get back down to 85 next season/end of the season. Not completely sure, but they will count eventually.
Ha. I'm sure Urban isn't the only one...
Ross Douglas gone
I would be surprised if Coach Hoke wasn't on the phone right now, along with every program in the country sending assistant coaches to PSU right now.
all i know is bobby bowden is the happiest guy in the country right know. retakes that #1 spot
Agreed. And they had to go through the torture of having a lot of optimism return with BOB and this recruiting class.
60M, 10 years of probation, and vacated wins from 99-01 would have satisfied most people.
That is my understanding...which makes this really tough for those kids. And the seniors basically are going to lose this season no matter what at this point.
I think it's 10 initially, then a 65 scholarship limit (FCS standard I believe) and can only recruit 15 per year to keep it at that limit.
Fine of $60 million. Funds will establish endowment for victims of sexual abuse. Equivalent of one year's football revenue.
Four-year postseason ban.
Scholarships reduced from 25 to 15 for four years.
Athletes will be permitted to transfer.
NCAA vacates all wins from 1998-2011.
Athletic program will serve five-year probationary period.
NCAA reserves right to initiate formal investigation to impose sanctions on individuals involved after criminal proceedings.
NCAA requiring Penn State to adopt to reforms outlined in Freeh report.
Penn State will be required to bolster compliance office.
NCAA will select independent athletics integrity monitor to report on progress Penn State is making on all provisions of agreement

I'm talking about for other schools accepting the transfers.
It wouldn't have been a 1 season death penalty and then all is good. They would have hit them with similar stuff after that season. With a death penalty, just about every player is gone. They wouldn't have sat there and watched football on tv, they would have left to play the game. Now, most of the kids will stay and finish their career. They will have players leaving, but enough will stay.
Ah, I gotcha. My mistake.
How long do they have to get on another roster before camps start?
Do you think Penn States recruiting class in 1998 would have been as strong if they were to announce their assistant coach was raping little boys in the football shower? Not a chance, that is a competitive advantage, and extremely disgusting.
What do you think that information would have done to their brand moving forward?
This would have tarnished it and made it much harder to sustain excellence
They aren't going anywhere. You can't just become a fan of another program. They may become quiet about their fandom, but they will always be rooting for PSU.
Saw a rumor that the Big 10 is going to announce further penalties at 11 AM.
