He's Bad, Bad, Mark Emmert, baddest man in the whole damned town.... that doesn't work, does it? (I was going for Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown by Jim Croce).
The NCAA, or Big Bad Mark, announced their sanctions against Penn State. Those sanctions include:
- Four-year postseason ban
- $60 million fine, to go to an endowment for children's charities
- 10 incoming scholarships lost first year, 20 scholarship deduction for four years (more or less an entire roster worth of scholarships)
- Vacation of all wins from 1998 through 2011 (meaning Joe Paterno now ranks seventh among all D1 coaches in wins)
- Five years probation
- Penn State players can transfer immediately without penalty
