And speculation begins to run rampant:
Penn State sanctions expected to be extremely harsh and could even be perceived as more damaging long-term than “death penalty”

Ben Jones, who believes any outside criticism of Penn State is borne of hysterics, continues to say all is well:
I’ll get to your questions as soon as I can. But I don’t think this means Death Penalty.

Jay Bilas takes a shot at ESPN’s partner:
Will NCAA self-impose sanctions on itself for lack of control in naming Graham Spanier to chair Emmert’s Group on Athlete Welfare? Hmmm.

Andy Staples has a good idea:
PR pro tip: If you work in college sports and have anything unpleasant to announce, 9:01 am Monday would be a perfect time to do that.
