Yes, 10 scholarships/year. It was misreported earlier in the day on many news outlets. You say it's nowhere near the death penalty/no comparison but that's arguing semantics. SMU lost 55 scholarships in 4 years and PSU loses 40 in 4 years. SMU lost a full season plus home games the next season (and volunteered to completely sit out the next full season) and PSU gets a 60 million dollar fine, equal to one season of football-related income. SMU got nothing close to 60 million (actually 60 million less). With the Internets/social media/exponentially more $$ in college football these days, the financial implications (current and future) for PSU are likely far greater. I'm not arguing that the program should be shut down or not but the penalty is pretty darn close to the death penalty, IMHO. How about a 1/2 death penalty? In addition, the students were involved in the infractions at SMU. Penn State's football team had nothing to do with it. A short comparison on foxsports: http://msn.foxsports.com/collegefoo...e-ncaa-penalties-to-southern-methodist-072312 PSU's non-conference schedule next year is Ohio, UVA, Navy and Temple, then 'Cuse, UVA, Eastern Michigan and Kent State in '13. They should certainly win a few of those but none are 1AA like so many other top 25 schools schedule.
