The NCAA has imposed a series of unprecedented penalties on Penn State due to the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal. The penalties include a $60 million fine, the loss of all victories from 1998-2011 (which removes Joe Paterno from his spot as winningest college football coach), the loss of 20 scholarships per year for 4 years, and 5 years' probation.
