Bielema isn't much of a religious guy.  It was just an expression.  It was a way of avoiding saying some unpleasant things such as "our players aren't very good".  If you were going to write this, you should have written in regards to someone who is actually religious and actually believes that...like when Chizik said that Auburn winning was a "God Thing" (but then going 0-8 in the SEC apparently was a thing from somewhere else).

There is obviously no comparison at all.  I'm not talking about "comparing" them.  I'm just acknowledging John's assertion that the NCAA is setting a brand new precedent here.  It's a precedent that could apply to something far less than Jerry Sandusky molesting young boys.

I have to agree with you, John.  These transgressions never affected who was eligible or ineligible to play football games and thus this is not the NCAA's business.

 

I have no problem with the NCAA - or anyone else - whacking PSU over this, but the precedent it sets opens up a whole new realm of potential investigations and punitive measures.  Should UGA be punished for their continued off-the-field problems that they can't seem to get a handle on?  Should Mizzou be penalized for not firing a coach who endangered the public with his drunk driving?  Should Arkansas be punished for not keeping closer tabs on a coach that was having an affair with a subordinate?  Where are we drawing the line?
