NCAA set to hammer Penn State
Penn State football is on the verge of feeling the wrath of the NCAA.
A source told CBS News correspondent Armen Keteyian that the university will face "unprecedented" penalties when the NCAA officially announces "corrective and punitive measures" for both the football program and the school itself at a press conference at 9 a.m. ET Monday.
According to the report, the penalties may be unique — different than any previously applied by the NCAA — and could last beyond one season.
NCAA president Mark Emmert has discussed the possibility of sanctions for Penn State following the release of the Freeh Report and has not ruled out the use of the death penalty. If the Nittany Lions indeed receive the death penalty, the program would become the second major college football program to be shut down. SMU was handed the penalty in 1987.
Even if the death penalty is not handed out, Penn State football will certainly suffer a huge setback because of these impending penalties.
