Ordinarily, with the passing of Joe Paterno and the incarceration of Jerry Sandusky, the Penn State story would be considered closed. But it seems like it is just now unfolding. The extent of Sandusky’s horrors were presented in court. But the involvement of Paterno and other officials at Penn State continues to be revealed. College football never has been marred by a more sordid and tragic picture. Yet despite causing the kind of wrath that makes you want to spit, and the level of sorrow that prompts you to weep, does it belong in the bailiwick of the NCAA? And should that organization bring the hammer down with the ultimate blow?
