Just one day after Penn State removed a statue of disgraced coach Joe Paterno, the NCAA announced that the school will pay a $60 million fine. That’s the penalty for tacitly condoning and facilitating years of sexual abuse by convicted child rapist Jerry Sandusky.

Other sanctions and corrective actions:

NCAA: $60 million fine on Penn State, must reduce 10 initial scholarships and 20 total scholarships each year for four years.

Further, a four-year postseason ban on Penn State from the NCAA.

NCAA vacates all #PennState wins from 1998-2011.

Individuals in #PennState scandal may still be penalized, pending any possible investigations by the @NCAA

Players may transfer immediately without penalty says NCAA president

In the wake of NCAA's penalties, Joe Paterno's new win count is 298.

A reminder of Joe Paterno’s words when Southern Methodist University was shut down for a year in the 1980s.

"It's unbelievable to think that kind of corruption came from the top. The NCAA did what it had to do." — Joe Paterno on SMU

Many feel the penalties aren’t harsh enough.

The NCAA wussed out. Bowl ban, lost wins, and $60M – that's tough but not tough enough. Should have been the death penalty.

Glad NCAA dropped the hammer on Penn State, but it should have been worse. I say no football for 4 years. #ncaa #pennstate #banhammer

Putting #PennState on "Probation" is a JOKE! Yes, the other penalties are justified, but I feel the NCAA didn't go far enough in this case.

But others believe Penn State should have gotten off easier. Hey, why should Penn State suffer for allowing a child rapist to steal the innocence of multiple children?

No offense to the victims of Sandusky but why did the NCAA hit Penn St. Like that?

— Jordan Pleasants (@Sir_JP) July 23, 2012

PSU seriously needs to sue the NCAA. A serious injustice has occurred.

The NCAA may have just decimated an entire university's athletic program. #doesntseemright #punishthosedirectlyinolved

It’s an injustice? It’s unfair? Was Sandusky’s brutal violation of children just? Was it fair that Penn State officials built a culture of secrecy and silence that allowed the abuse to continue?

Vile.

And now, revolting rape and molestation comparisons are bouncing around the Twitterverse.

Damn. The NCAA just raped the entire Penn State football team and those who had no direct involvement in this case..that's crazy!

The proper response:

I CANNOT even deal with your "why is the NCAA punishing current students?" tweets/statuses. Children were raped. Go to hell.
