My son got a full scholarship to Brigham Young University. So I know about scholarships, etc. And NO player can decided he wants to go to X school and just waltz in at this late date. Most already have their scholarships filled. They are allowed so many and that is it. So jut saying those players can go "to any school they choose" is not correct, at least as far as scholarships go, and maybe as far as team rostes go.
I think it is wrong to punish the kids. I remember way back when we did not let our athletes go to the olympics. I could see and understand the reason, but at the same time, those atheltes haqd worked and trained most of their lives to get to the olympics and were denied the chance, and may were to old to compete 4 years later. I felt so sorry for those kids.
I guess they are trying to make an "example" of Penn state, but you don't burn down the barn to get rid of a few rats.
