The best perspective of Penn State scandal

Kudos to my friend, former News-Herald correspondent and current WKNR-AM 850 radio host Will Burge.

I've read and heard countless takes on the Penn State scandal and the NCAA sanctions that were levied onto the football program on Monday. None have been as effective and better than Burge's this week.

His take: the Penn State football program, which won't play in a bowl game for four seasons and will lose 40 scholarships in the same time period, will eventually recover. It will take time, but the Nittany Lions will one day be back.

The victims and their families in the Jerry Sandusky sex scandal might never recover. The pain and scars will most likely stay forever.

How's that for proper prospective?
