NCAA to sanction Penn State

Joe Paterno's statue was removed at Penn State on Sunday morning.

Also Sunday, the NCAA announced it will hand down "corrective and punitive measures" to the Penn State football program on Monday morning.

NCAA president Mark Emmert will reveal the sanctions at an 8:00 a.m. press conference in Indianapolis.

The sanctions are expected to include a lengthy bowl ban, and severe reductions in football scholarships.

Some reports say the punishments will hurt Penn State more than the dreaded "death penalty."

This is an unprecedented move by the NCAA.  It will be the first time The NCAA has penalized a school without the due process of a Committee on Infractions hearing.

ESPN's Joe Schad says Mark Emmert was given the authority to act on this issue by the NCAA Board of Directors and the NCAA Executive Committee.
