(SportsNetwork.com) - Isaac Newton declared for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That wasnt more evident when the NCAA took Penn State University to the woodshed with heavy sanctions in July 2012, stemming from the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. The general consensus from those who bleed blue and white was outrage, and that the penalties handed down from NCAA president Mark Emmert were superfluous. Why did the football team have to suffer for the abominable actions of a convicted child molester? As a Penn State graduate and enthusiast, thats a question I asked myself while strolling the beach in Ocean City, Maryland, on a typical gorgeous July morning behind the high-rise hotels. A text message from one of my two older sisters sent my relaxed, high-spirited demeanor into a tailspin. Emmert slammed his gavel to the tune of a four-year postseason ban, which was lifted this season, reduced scholarships, a hefty $60 million fine and players having permission to transfer elsewhere without penalty for one year. Illinois set up camp in Happy Valley and tried to recruit players as if they were enlisting in one of the armed services. Only nine players left. It seems the university accepted the sanctions without hesitation and opted to fire legendary coach Joe Paterno via a telephone call. Makes sense. The man dedicated his life and some of his earnings to the school, so lets show some class by moving him along with a phone call. Why not send an e-mail, a text message or use skywriting? This past November, the NCAA released internal e-mails written in 2012 that show it was questioning its right to sanction PSU. With jurisdiction or not, the NCAA overstepped its boundaries and now looks foolish. Paterno was deemed as an enabler to Sandusky for allowing the monster on campus and taking advantage of innocent lives through his underprivileged youth organization known as The Second Mile. We all know the story. Sandusky took miles to horrify children and deserves to rot in his cell, but the discipline levied by the NCAA was too harsh. Yes, I am obviously a staunch supporter of Penn State, but I can separate my feelings for the school with reality. Did Paterno do enough to stop his former defensive coordinator from his lewd acts? No, he didnt because mentioning it to his superiors doesnt suffice in this day and age. Paterno, who was criticized for missing or ignoring signs of Sanduskys behavior, ran University Park and pretty much still does. He would have been more of a hero had he cut ties with Sandusky. Im not trying to open old wounds that may have slightly healed. I feel the NCAA is trying to backtrack with a recent report it will eliminate the sanctions entirely and restore Paternos 111 vacated wins. Taking away wins was utterly embarrassing for the NCAA. How are you going to tell Michael Robinson and the rest of the Nittany Lions they didnt beat Bobby Bowden and the Florida State Seminoles in the Orange Bowl? How can the NCAA tell the Paterno family, which is still pushing for a lawsuit, the 409 wins are no more? Paterno, who passed away after a bout with lung cancer shortly after his dismissal, compiled more wins than any other Division I football coach. What Sandusky did was awful. Terrible. Disgusting. But it didnt give Penn State an advantage athletically. There are other schools in the country with student-athletes who cheat in class, trade items for other goods, do drugs or run into the wrong arm of the law, and receive lesser sanctions. Well, apparently the NCAA feels it was too harsh on Penn State and it was reported by the Philadelphia Inquirer it may wipe out the sanctions. Former FBI director Louis Freeh led the investigation, saying top Penn State officials conspired to keep the abuse allegations under lock and key. The NCAA seems to have opened its proverbial, and seemingly blind, eyes with the latest news of replenishment. I couldnt be more happy for the university, the players, the students and alumni. Bill OBrien couldnt have done a better job in his short tenure as Paternos successor and knew what he was walking into. He was Penn States Moses to the Israelites before taking an NFL gig with the Houston Texans. You cant blame him for that. A statue in OBriens likeness is deserved. Paterno had a statue once. True story. It was located alongside Beaver Stadium, which should be called Paterno Field when all is said and done. Perhaps one day the bronze version of Paterno will reappear alongside a stadium that holds more than 100,000 fans. Penn State coach James Franklin runs the show now in Happy Valley and maybe one day he will be immortalized by the creative hands of a sculptor. I may be going overboard here with the icons. Franklin, though, has the Nittany Lions headed in the right direction and is living up to the recruiting moniker Dominate The State. Franklin guided the Nittany Lions to a Pin Stripe Bowl win over Boston College a few weeks ago. Its been awhile since Penn State dominated college football, but it feels even longer with what happened there a few years ago. If this recent report of the NCAA realizing its mistake is true, Penn State can breathe more life into the program and restore its pristine reputation. Cameron Heyward Steelers Jersey. According to the Globe and Mail, a decision between the NHL and the Players Association should come within the six months. "I can tell you, (a decision) shouldnt take all that long," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told the Globe and Mail. Cody Wallace Steelers Jersey. There was little fanfare, though, when the Yankees captain was taken out of his final regular-season Subway Series game in the eighth inning. Jeter watched the last four outs from the bench, pulled off the field during a double switch Thursday night as the Yankees held off the Mets 1-0. http://www.steelersproauthentic.com/Black-Friday-Marcus-Gilbert-Jersey/. - No matter the lineup or location, the San Antonio Spurs are rolling through the NBA again this spring, just the way they have for most of the last two decades. Mike Webster Steelers Jersey.J. Hardy to avoid a three-game sweep after blowing a big early lead. Odour had a leadoff single in the seventh and scored the tiebreaking run with the help of two errors by Hardy as the Rangers went on to beat the Orioles 8-6 on Thursday night. Merril Hoge Steelers Jersey. Gomes drove in all three runs, including a go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning, and Cleveland rallied for a 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- James Shields turned and gave a salute after striking out Pablo Sandoval to end his four-hitter, the Kansas City Royals sixth straight victory, 5-0 over San Francisco Giants on Saturday night. "I was just saluting the bullpen, man," Shields said. "Theyve done a phenomenal job for us, saving our behinds all year long. Its nice to give them a day off. It just a nice little salute to the bullpen, tell them to take a day." Alex Gordon homered for the Royals, who have won nine of 10 to move with 1 1-2 games of AL Central-leading Detroit. The Royals, who have not made the playoffs since beating St. Louis in the 1985 World Series, are in second place in the AL wild card standings. Shields (11-6) gave up three singles in the first four innings. He allowed only two Giants to reach second base. He walked Joe Panik in the fifth and he moved to second on a wild pitch with two outs, but was stranded. Panik doubled in the eighth. "Hes got good stuff," said Buster Posey, who went 0 for 4 and struck out once against Shields. "Thats about it. Hes been good for a while." It was Shields ninth career shutout, his first since Sept. 9, 2012. Tim Hudson (8-9) gave up the home run to Gordon to lead off the fifth inning on Nebraska Night at Kauffman Stadium. Gordon is a Lincoln, Nebraska native and was the college player of the year in 2005 as a junior with the Cornhuskers. Was it a coincidence Gordon homered on Nebraska Night? "I go deep all the time. What are you talking about?" Gordon deadpanned before laughing. "It was a good crowd. It just energized all the players. It added excitement and energy. There was a lot of (Nebraska) red tonight, so that was good to see." Hudson yielded three straight hits to start the four-run seventh and was replaced by Jeremy Affeldt. The inning included Mike Moustakas run-producing double while Lorenzoo Cain, Alcides Escobar and Jarrod Dyson had RBI-singles.dddddddddddd Hudson was charged with three runs and six hits in six-plus innings. Affeldt, who had held the opposition scoreless in his previous 13 outings, faced four batters and gave up two runs and three hits. "Theyre playing very well," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of the Royals. "When you play good teams you have to play your best ball. Last night we let it get away. Tonight we just ran into a well-pitched game." TRAINING ROOM Giants: Catcher Hector Sanchez, who went on the concussion list July 26, suffered a setback Friday when he left a rehab game with Triple-A Fresno after taking a hard shot off the mask. "Hell have to get some tests," Bochy said. "Theres some concern there." Bochy said it might be necessary for Sanchez to change masks, abandoning the hockey mask. Royals: First baseman Eric Hosmer remains sidelined with a broken right hand. ON DECK Giants: Tim Lincecum has faced the Royals only once in his career: in 2008 when he allowed five runs in five innings in a no-decision that the Giants lost 11-10. Royals: Danny Duffy is holding left-handed hitters to a .146 average this season and opponents to a .189 average at Kauffman Stadium. GO DANNY GO The Royals were watching the Toronto Blue Jays victory over Detroit in the clubhouse before their game Saturday. Ex-Royal Danny Valencia scored the winning run from first base on a double in the 10th inning. "Go Danny go," Dyson shouted as Valencia rounded third. MISTER AUGUST Shields is 13-3 with a 2.49 ERA in August since 2011. The 13 August victories in that span matches Zack Grienke for the most in the majors. SLUMPING GIANTS The Giants are 20-34 in their past 54 games, the third-lowest winning percentage in the majors. They were a major league-best 42-21 on June 9 with a 9 1-2 game lead in the NL West.
