Corbett Says Ncaa Ruling Is Unfair To Psu Students

07.27.12 | Bob Price

The NCAA this week imposed a $60 million fine, a four-year bowl game ban, reduced football scholarships and forfeiture of 112 wins.  The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Corbett said the penalties will affect all current students. He said those students had nothing to do with the scandal but are “bearing the brunt” of the sanctions.  Corbett also said he believed that the university “was turning things around on its own” before the sanctions were announced. But he said the university voluntarily belonged to the NCAA “and I guess they have to play by their rules.”
