Governor to Sue NCAA over Penn. State Sanctions

Gov. Tom Corbett said Tuesday he plans to sue the NCAA in federal court over stiff sanctions imposed against Penn State University in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal.

The Republican governor scheduled a Wednesday news conference on the Penn State campus in State College to announce the filing in U.S. District Court in Harrisburg.

A person associated with the university and knowledgeable about the matter, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the lawsuit had not been filed, told The Associated Press that it is an antitrust action.

    The NCAA is an illegal cartel. Their usual modus operandi is to draw up capricious rules, arbitrarily enforce them, take a sanctimonious stand against any infractions, and punish the innocent bystanders. I hope they lose their asses in court and are forced to disband. Maybe some administrators will end up in jail.
