The way things were done many, many innocents get to suffer the consequences and the draconian sanctions ...[text shortened]... ime has not even the remotest impact on decreasing child sexual abuse, which should be the goal.
So you suggest that no NCAA sanctions were appropriate.Again, i just reread your reply closely, and you state nothing in your reply that the NCAA can do. The NCAA is not the law. Sandusky is already in jail. Others are being prosecuted for perjury I think. You seem to be confused about what are NCAA sanctions. By the way, NCAA sanctions by definition are against the insititution for violations by individuals (and sometimes strucutural acquiesence by the institution, not in a legal sense, but in a NCAA contractual sense) -- colleges agree to the contract allowing for sanctions.
Sometimes the individuals comiiting the specific violation are only remotely related to the institution.
The idea is the sanctions will entice the insititution to better prevent violations, educate against violations, encourage reporting, and police themselves, etc. which sanctions can actually work quite well to make those kind of things happen. I have seen it. I would understand and listen to what you are saying if you demonsstrated an understanding of what are NCAA sanctions and their purpose.
