Umm, yeah it was football related. They were covering up a former coach's transgressions and enabled him to continue to rape children. Personally, I hope the sanctions go well beyond just the stupid football program. But to argue that it has nothing to do with the football program, protecting JoePa's legacy, allowing him to keep pushing for the most wins in NCAA history, and whatnot is just foolish. The football program was the heart of it. The football program made Sandusky a local celebrity and enabled him to create a charity that essentially became a child escort service for this guy. They were enablers, and they deserve to have it all burnt to the ground.

That university has built a cult-like following where their people actually think that the school and its students are the real victims in this case. I would be just fine with it losing accreditation and allowing everyone to transfer away from that cesspool of morals. Get them into some normal schools and maybe that will break the spell of insanity.

Again getting hit with punishment isnt the point its how they came to that resolution. I pay attention to football news and thats how I can tell you the NCAA doesnt hand out punishment without investigating and deciding as an organization how it will proceed.
Well yeah, because in every other case there hasn't been a criminal investigation from the FBI and other enforcement agencies. In those cases, there weren't independent investigations being commissioned by the school, because NONE of them were anywhere near as bad as this! How is it that hard to understand? Nothing in the history of the NCAA has been this bad. Period. So when they rule in a way that is unprecedented in response to acts that are also unprecedented, don't be so surprised.
