CHEMUNG COUNTY, N.Y. --The NCAA revealed unprecedented sanctions against Penn State Monday morning that could impact the football program for years to come.
The punishments come in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal and the alleged cover up by school administration and former football coach, Joe Paterno.
Penn State has been banned from bowl games for four year, fined $60 million and has vacated all football victories from 1998 to 2011 from the record books.
Penn State students and alumni were surprised by the severity of the punishments, but believe the university will recover.
"The people that have been involved in Penn State realize this is not what Penn State's all about and so I think going forward, we are just going to pull together as a university community, we are still going to support our team whether they are good or they're not as good and we are going to be there for Penn State for the future," said Ken Leath of the Southern Finger Lakes Chapter of the PSU Alumni Association.
Vacating those wins removes Joe Paterno from the top of the list of college football's all time winningest coaches.
