Mike Leach, football coach and lawyer, says this about the NCAA pronouncing final sentence on Penn State:
“I haven’t really thought it through carefully on that,” Leach said. “It’s hard to say. I guess the question is: Where does the legal system begin and end coupled with the NCAA? But this is a unique and extreme circumstance to it.” [Emphasis added.]
That’s all the ambiguity wrapped up in a nutshell. We won’t know the answer to that until the next time the public gets its panties in a wad over something related to college athletics, I’m afraid. I just hope when that happens, my school is far, far away from the action.
