Penn State wasn't punished because of Jerry Sandusky's actions. Penn State was punished because for 10 years they KNEW what Sandusky was doing and they actively hid his behavior. They were punished for their own actions. Had they turned in Sandusky in the first place, I don't think they would have faced any sanctions. If the next school finds a scumbag in their midst and then turns him over to the proper authorities, I wouldn't anticipate any punishment from the NCAA. If, however, they discover a scumbag and actively cover it up, I suspect the next punishment will be harsher than this one.
