Apparently the Trib and the NCAA already have tried the Penn State officials, who have yet to have their trial, and found them guilty (“Easing Penn State's sanctions: Wrong message,” Sept. 27 and TribLIVE.com).

The key word in your editorial is “alleged,” so let's wait for the trial.

Why is there no hurry to convict Oklahoma State? Why did “Johnny Football” receive a slap on the wrist with a half-game suspension when Terrelle Pryor and the OSU players received complete suspensions for basically the same thing?

The NCAA rushed to judgment on Penn State and applied sanctions for things that should have been handled by law enforcement. Maybe it has now realized that, but it doesn't make it any less of a joke for wanting sanctions on kids who didn't even know who Jerry Sandusky was.
