Punishment pushback I

| Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

In reference to the letter “Punishment the point” by Bob Sevcik: I must say it is absurd that he recommended and supported shutting down the Penn State football program in light of the Jerry Sandusky scandal and still seems to hold a grudge against it.

While many children went through a terrible ordeal and something certainly needed to happen, the NCAA sanctions are not really penalizing the school as he says they are.

They are hurting the many young men who are now part of the football team — young men who had no involvement in the scandal, many of whom would have been too young to play pee-wee football at the time the problems were taking place.

And for the record, I am not a Penn State alumnus and never played college football, nor have I been to Penn State. I just think it is past time to quit beating down the young men who are there and trying to right the ship.
