Penn State’s punishment: What the NCAA took away from the school
- 5 years of probation handed down by NCAA to Penn State’s program
- 14 number of years of wins the school must vacate — basically every victory since Paterno was aware of the first allegation
- $60M the amount the school will be sanctioned by the NCAA; the funds will go towards programs to prevent child abuse
- four years of bowl bans for the school; they will lose 20 scholarships over four years, and students can transfer source
» No longer the winningest: As a result of the vacated seasons, Paterno will no longer be the NCAA’s winningest football coach, which means that Florida State’s Bobby Bowden is now the winningest coach in NCAA history — and a statistic that once meant everything means nothing.
