Tell the NCAA to restore Penn State Football's 112 victories!

The acts of Jerry Sandusky were heinous and indefensible.  And one could argue that some of the NCAA sanctions against Penn State may help the victims of his crimes and ensure that nothing like this ever happens again.

But taking hard-fought victories from the hundreds of dedicated student athletes who committed themselves to the ideal of Success With Honor over a 14 year period serves no one. It simply creates more collateral damage in this horrific case.

Please help me tell the NCAA to do the right thing and return the honor that they've taken from these men.

      Thanks to your efforts, we are nearing 700 signatures after just 48 hours. That's about 1 every 4 minutes.

      Now, suppose each of you was able to get 5 people to sign this weekend. That would bring us to 4,000. And what if all of them brought in 5 more supporters? Well...you can do the math.

      Mike Zordich, Mike Mauti and their teammates are committed to the Penn State community. Let's show them that the Nittany Nation is committed to their Honor as well.

      For the Glory,

      The NCAA is run by criminals

      The players on the field have nothing to do with a criminal act by an ex- coach. You cannot punish the students and football players because of one pedophile. Just because you want to make someone suffer doesn't give anyone the right to hurt the football players. That is not how we change behavior. It is like saying, one policeman is bad so let's let all the criminals out of prison to show them. It was never proven that Joe Paterno knew about it, and his name was smeared. Lack of evidence about the role of the entire coaching staff should preclude any punishments aimed at all of the University and the football community. The pedophile is in prison. Good. Now let's try to find more avenues to teach people about criminal perverts. Penn State should not suffer the sins of one disgusting man. Please do what is right.

      Put the focus where it should have been from the beginning, CRIMES were committed. Great opportunity to educate about "nice guy" pedophiles. But the media went for the salacious, with no regard for the truth. Sickening. Taking away wins is just silly. CRIMES.
