For reasons not understood by anyone as far as I can tell, Mississippi's new mascot is the landsharks. There was a good case for Admiral Ackbar, though, when they originally changed themselves to be bears.

NCAA over-stepped its bounds with Penn State. Not sure PSU broke any NCAA academic or recruiting or improper benefits laws. But in grand scheme of things PSU got off light. Federal govt should've went in there thrown Paterno in prison and shut that program down for eternity.
This: IMHO with any criminal case, NCAA should request the school to impose immediate self sanctions, and that they will make a ruling on if more are needed when the criminal case is resolved and all the facts can be addressed. 
It bugged me to no end that PSU and Paterno were convicted/railroaded w/o due process. But after all we've seen come out I think PSU should have suffered larger penalties. Lots of people comments on how PSU has recovered from the sanctions, but almost no one mentions how the sanctions have been stepped down to almost nonexistence.

I think their defense called themselves that the year they were looking for a mascot, so it won

this, their d, and now whole team, has adopted it as their own mascot, and so the school has officially now as well.
also, rumors this morning that penalties will be:
1 more year bowl ban (2 counting this year)
13 scholarships
4 years probation
bunch of show cause
the scholarships seem light to me, but rest looks decent.

I wasn't even aware they changed it from Colonel Sanders. Seems like a pretty weak PC move to placate people. When you think of Mississippi, you definitely think of Sharks. Joking of course.

two year bowl ban. they already self-imposed one year, so that's 3 years they'll be without a bowl.

four year probation

$179,000 fine

former assistant coach Dave Saunders with an 8-year show cause

13 scholarship reduction

wow I read that wrong. NCAA just added 1 year to the already self-imposed 1 year ban Ole Miss did for this year.

That means guys like QB Shea Patterson- who is a true sophomore can't transfer without sitting a year. Because the bowl ban is only an additional year- only guys that can transfer without having to sit a year are Jr's and RS Jr's. Everyone else- true frosh, RS frosh, true soph, RS soph....has to sit a year if they intend to transfer.

stupid bowl ban/eligibility rule IMO. If team gets hit by NCAA sanctions and player wasn't involved in putting that team on sanctions- he should be allowed to move without having to sit, no matter his eligibility and the length of a bowl ban.

Sounds like they got off kinda light, though the loss of 13 schollies is going to sting.

they did get off pretty light. All they did was show the have-not schools- which Ole Miss is- that go ahead and cheat your way into a little bit of national prominence- then take the slap on the wrist- and rinse and repeat. They'll go right back to this after they get off sanctions.

the probation, fine, and show cause mean nothing

adding a zero to the fine wouldn't bother them
