View Diary: Corbett suing NCAA on antitrust grounds (34 comments)

  •  The fine is enforceable (0+ / 0-)

    by contract law.  Two sides signed a (seemingly) beneficial contract.  NCAA will not throw out Penn State, you take this bucket-full of sanctions.  Deal.  Sign here.  

    By the way, the University forfeited its right of appeal in signing the contract.  Somewhat standard stuff.   So it CANNOT join the case.  Which has standing implications (see my post about state-related institutions below).  

    And if Tommy one-term wants to argue, he's free to leave the NCAA and start playing NAIA ball.  Try getting 100k to watch non-scholarship football!  Carlow and Point Park would be glad to have company (Carlow is a historical women's school, Point Park is a historical trade school with a highly regarded fine arts program).  Would be first NAIA football in the Commonwealth.

    •  NCAA could join Penn St (0+ / 0-)

      If they breached a rep and warranty to the effect of being able to enter into the consent agreement, in which case the NCAA becomes free to impose the death penalty.  Why does Corbett think anyone benefits from ripping up the agreement?

      Penn State doesn't go NAIA; they join the CFL.

      Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
