Penn State and Miami have NOTHING in common

There has been a smattering of extremely butthurt Penn State fans on twitter who have been lamenting the fate of their program at the hands of the NCAA in comparison to what they perceive as a slap on the wrist that was received earlier today by the University of Miami for various NCAA violations stemming from convicted Ponzi schemer Nevin Shapiro's relationship with the Hurricanes program for about a decade. Now, I retweeted some of these people earlier today, and I still feel dirty about searching for those tweets.

The fact is that the situations at Penn State and Miami had nothing in common other than a now convicted felon. The harm caused by the administration of Miami ignoring Nevin Shapiro giving players money is not even in the same hemisphere as the atrocious acts committed by Jerry Sandusky, and the subsequent criminal conspiracy to cover up his behavior that went all the way to the top of the Penn State administration, which is why Graham Spanier, Tim Curley, and Gary Schultz are all about to go on trial for said coverup.

Also, Penn State signed a consent decree that admitted to the charges. They have no leg to stand on in this case, and their fans need to shut the fuck up and stop with the victim complex.
