CBS 8 Sports Analyst John Longshore on Penn State Punishment


By CBS 8 News

CBS 8 Sports Analyst John Longshore was on CBS 8 News at 5:00's Talkback segment to discuss the punishment handed down to Penn State.

The NCAA has imposed tough penalties against Penn State's football program in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case. Sandusky was an assistant football coach.

Longshore says while Penn State didn't receive the "death penalty" from the NCAA, as did SMU in the 1980s, the punishment is close. He says the lost of scholarships will be devastating to the program.
