WUSA -- This morning the NCAA laid down the hammer on the Penn State University football program as punishment for the Jerry Sandusky scandal. In an unprecedented series of penalties announced Monday morning, the University has been fined $60 million and former head football coach Joe Paterno will have his victories from 1998-2011 vacated. Other sanctions handed down include a four-year ban on bowl games, the loss of 20 scholarships per year over four years and five years– probation. Some people thought the sanctions were appropriate, while others thought they were unfair for various reasons. Take a look at this gallery of tweets from 25 people who think the sanctions are unfair to either Paterno or Penn State. (The Associated Press contributed to this report)
